    The obelisk was erected in honor of the 30,000 fallen Bavarian soldiers of the Napoleonic Russian campaign (design: Leo v. Klenze, bronze casting: Johann Baptist Stiglmaier). The obelisk (height 29m) consists of bricks on the inside and was clad on the outside with bronze plates cast from captured artillery pieces.

    The Karolinenplatz is the first place in Munich that takes up the motif of the Strahlplatz. The eye-catching obelisk in the middle of the square brings back memories of the obelisk on the Place de la Concorde in Paris, even if the two monoliths have practically nothing in common.
