The Monopteros offers views over the southern English Garden and the skyline of Munich city center. And on snowy winter days, especially the youngest among the sleigh riders cavort here. Newly renovated, the round temple was handed over to the public at the end of September 2016 after a year and a half of general refurbishment.
Leo von Klenze built at the behest of King Ludwig I the round temple in the Greek style in the first half of the 19th century. The filigree building rests on a mighty, 15-meter-high foundation of brick, which is elegantly concealed by an artificial hill.

The Monopteros is a popular meeting place for old and young. As a cyclist you have to cover the last few meters on foot. The view towards the Frauenkirche is worthwhile. Especially in the early morning, or before sunset, here is a soft, warm light. In autumn, fog often sets the mood.
