The architecture of Munich's Palace of Justice

The monumental building in Maxvorstadt with its striking dome made of iron and glass is also magnificently furnished on the inside. The central hall, which extends over four floors with a total of almost 500 rooms, is a frequently chosen film set for numerous thrillers and lawyer series. Your guide will explain the special architecture and history of the courthouse during the tour of the building.

 

A tour for history enthusiasts

The tour of the Palace of Justice will also take you to Room 253, where the trials of the Scholl siblings and other members of the White Rose are commemorated. In this context, the recently opened exhibition “Arbitrariness in the Name of the German People“ will also be visited together. Its main aim is to keep the memory of the victims alive, but it also provides detailed information about the three trials and all the people involved, the undermining of the principles of the rule of law during the Nazi dictatorship, coming to terms with unjust justice after 1945 and the lessons that must be learned from this for the present.

Your guide will also provide you with interesting background information during the guided tour of the gallery with portraits of the Bavarian ministers of justice, including Wilhelm Hoegner, father of the Bavarian constitution, and Mathilde Berghofer-Weichner, the first woman to hold this office.

And what does the Justizpalast stand for today? Your guide will explain which courts sit here, which sensational trials were held here and which celebrities have already sat in the courtroom.
