One of my favourite spots in Munich, the Friedensengel (Angel of peace) is originally a reminder of the 25 peaceful years after the Franco-German war of 1870/71.
I have a very early memory where my parents and I are part of some kind of peace rally. I have no clue anymore (if I ever had) what exactly it was about (probably nothing to do with the Franco-German war), all I remember is, it was next to the Friedensengel and everyone had a small candle in their hand. Every time I pass by the Friedensengel nowadays I get the same peaceful feeling I had that day.
Besides being a very peaceful place it is also a very romantic place. The river Isar is nearby, underneath the monument is a fountain and in front of you the great view of the Prinzregentenstrasse, one of Munich’s four royal avenues.
If the weather is nice, bring two cushions, a bottle of wine and enjoy the peace with your significant other.
