The New Town Hall, which was built in
the years form 1867 to 1909 in a Flanders Gothic style, with
a hight of over 300 feet in length, features strikingly elaborate
stone ornamentation. Its 260-foot tower with carillon is,
with St. Peter's Church and the twin towers of the Cathedral,
one of the most distinctive features of the city's skyline.
The Ludwigstraße, known as the magnificent "showpiece"
of Munich, is built under King Ludwig I in the first half
of the 19th century and marked the transformation of Munich
from a medieval town to an imperial residence.
