- Founded in 1472 by Ludwig the Rich in Ingolstadt, the university was moved to Landshut in 1802 and then to Munich in 1826. The building is a highly symmetrical structure with obvious Renaissance influences. The Große Aula (Great Hall) on the first floor and the atrium with the memorial to the Weiße Rose (the White Rose, a student resistance movement inspired by the Scholl sisters) are particularly worth a visit. With some 60,000 students and 20 faculties, the university is the largest in Germany. Dr Frankenstein was one of its alumni!
