View of the Alps with Ludwigs and Theatine Church, Munchen

View of the Alps with Ludwigs and Theatine Church, Munchen

When King Ludwig I (King of Bavaria from 1825 to 1848) began laying out plans for a monumental avenue that would traverse the city of Munich, he envisioned a grand street “worthy of his kingdom”. Thus was born Ludwigstrasse. It is one of the city’s four royal avenues. The Theatine Church (the yellowish building to the right) was built from 1663 to 1690, it is characterized by its Italian Baroque style. Thanks to Vanessa for this one. Her blog can be seen right here.
