Justizpalast Tour for groups

Discover the Munich Justizpalast (Palace of Justice) on a fascinating group tour! Immerse yourself in the rich history of this neo-baroque court and administrative building, which today houses the headquarters of the Bavarian State Ministry of Justice. From the time of the Prince Regents to the important court proceedings of the present day, there is much to explore.

Architectural masterpiece

The imposing Justizpalast in Maxvorstadt captivates not only with its striking dome of iron and glass, but also with its magnificent interior. The central hall, which extends over four floors with almost 500 rooms, often serves as a backdrop for film productions, especially for crime thrillers and lawyer series. During your tour of the building, your guide will introduce you to the unique architecture and history of this courthouse.

 

Places steeped in history

During the tour of the Justizpalast, you will also visit Room 253, where the trials of the Scholl siblings and other members of the White Rose took place. In this context, you will also visit the recently opened exhibition "Arbitrariness in the Name of the German People". This exhibition not only commemorates the victims, but also offers detailed information on the trials, the people involved, the undermining of constitutional principles during the Nazi dictatorship, the coming to terms with unjust justice after 1945 and the lessons that can be learned from it for the present.

During the guided tour through the gallery with the portraits of the Bavarian ministers of justice, you will receive interesting background information. Here you will also find personalities such as Wilhelm Hoegner, the father of the Bavarian constitution, and Mathilde Berghofer-Weichner, the first woman to hold this office.

 

The significance of the Justizpalast today

Your guide will explain which courts sit in the Palace of Justice and which important trials have taken place here. Learn which celebrities have already sat in the dock and how the Justizpalast still plays a central role in the legal system today.
