Bike Touring Highlight
Directly on the Theresienwiese is the Bavaria, symbol and secular patroness of the Free State of Bavaria. The huge statue on the Theresienwiese measures 18 meters and is cast in bronze. A spiral staircase leads to the head of the Bavaria, from where you have a unique view of the Theresienwiese and the adjacent districts. As one of Munich's landmarks, it is a popular photo opportunity and a meeting place for tourists.

The 18.52 m high Bavaria figure above the Theresienwiese and in front of the Hall of Fame was designed by Ludwig Schwanthaler, cast by Ferdinand von Miller's workshops after his death and then erected in 1850. For the first time since antiquity, there was an ore figure (60 steps) that could be walked inside as a technical masterpiece.
In 2020 there will be a small Bavaria with a slightly different appearance on the Isar.
