Munich was essentially rebuilt after World War II, as large swathes of the city were destroyed during the wartime bombings. While rebuilding, the city decided to restore many of its buildings to their traditional pre-war format, unlike a city such as Berlin, which chose to embrace modernity and skyscrapers. As a result, Munich’s architecture gives a sense of traditional Bavaria with a cozy, small-town flavor. Munich also has some surviving 19th and 20th century buildings, including some lovely Art Nouveau and Jugendstil apartments, shops and homes, as well as some ultra-contemporary architectural designs that showcase the city’s more modern tastes. Munich’s architecture is an intriguing blend of the highly traditional and the recent trends in building of the past several decades, and the following buildings are the city’s ten most beautiful, in our humble opinion.
