- Erected between 1891-97 by Friedrich von Thiersch, this monumental but well-proportioned building combines Renaissance and Baroque elements, and is one of the most successful examples of late 19th century German historicism. Its eastern wing, which you can see from Karlsplatz (Stachus), is particularly attractive with its sculptured central section and exaggerated Attica, behind which rises an impressive glass and iron dome. The Justizpalast (Palace of Justice) was destroyed in the War and while the interior has not been restored entirely to its original glory, it is nevertheless impressive. On the northern side, you will see the neo-Gothic Neue Justizpalast (New Palace of Justice), which was also built by Thiersch in 1906-08.
