Chinesischer Turm (Chinese Tower)

The Chinese Tower (Chinesischer Turm) was constructed in 1789 as an viewing platform and a place for bands to play to the crowd sitting in the beer garden below. During World War 2, the 25 meter high structure was burnt to the ground by a fire started from the bombing campaign of Munich. It was however reconstructed in 1951 using the original plans and as such stands just as it did over 200 years ago, in one of the biggest Beer Gardens in Munich.
