Riding Past the Ludwig I statue on the street of his name, you get a quick glimpse of what buildings were like in Ludwig’s day. In the background is the Palais Leuchtenberg. The 250-room palace is the largest in Munich, and now houses the Bavarian Ministry of Finance. The buildings set the standard and the mold for all other buildings that still today line Ludwigstrasse. It also bumps up against Odeonsplatz, the Hofgarten, the Residence, Siemens Headquarters, and quite a few other prominent addresses in Munich.
