Ralf- How did you dig up that information? Terrific!
Odeon- Great work too identifying the addresses. I was able to visit two of them today (it was raining but the wife was going out with the baby so I took my chance). I visited the one on Landshut Allee. As I was taking photos a guy came out to ask what I was doing. This has happened a couple of times so I was a bit evasive, but he was genuinely interested. He worked there and told me the building had been built either 1925 or 1927 for publishers of cartography (hence the name still above the door). Yet he had never known about the swastikas outside his office window all this time! He couldn't guess the reason for them as there was no link between the business and the nazis to his knowledge.
As an aside, I had to check my map about three times. Five people asked me if I needed help. That's Munich for you.

Keir...well, the right book, the knowing, which it is AND WHERE it is...and a bit luck ;-)))))))))))

I uncoded the description in your photo in the middle:

"1938 Erbaut durch die Stadtsparkasse München von (...??) Ha(..?)ns (...) Atzenbeck"

As I wrote, Atzenbeck was the architect.

Greetings
Ralf

So here are the pics from Odeonsplatz. There used to be a memorial to the dead Police officers who died during the putsch. I was there up until a few months ago. Anyone have any Idea were it went and why it was removed?

This plaque is on the wall of the Residenz, so maybe they thought two were redundant.

Ihoyos,

The plaque in your picture did not refer at all to the Bavarian police killed while ending the putsch. It referred strictly to the putschists that died, and ended with a typically National Socialist bombastic statement: "Und doch hat wir gesiegt", which more or less means "and yet we were still victorious" or "despite everything, we still won".

Cheers,

Ecam

Finally got back to Munich this month after a four year hiatus, and took a walk by the former Hotel Regina Palast where Neville Chamberlain's entourage stayed during the September 1938 Munich peace talks. It was a five star hotel and must have been spectacular.

This photo of the former hotel was taken last week:

Obviously a great deal of remodelling took place at some point. Two questions:
1. Does anyone know what the building is currently used for?
2. On a walk by the site of the former Braune Haus, a sign indicates that the documentation center is to be built in 2011. No construction has started. Has the project been delayed/cancelled?

Cheers,

The plaque nailed for the Nazis on the wall of the monument was for the fallen cops.

I was there a couple of days ago and noticed quite a lot of work being done; the hole has since been filled in and they've cleared the area:

No, the official start of the construction will be August or September.
The Center will be opened in December 2013 or February 2014.
