Walking down the Kardinal Faulhaber-Strasse in central Munich is like walking through a fairytale. The street is exceptionally beautiful and is home to some of the most decadent palaces in the city. The beautiful street includes baroque and neoclassical buildings that even have sculptures coming out of the walls! Just walk down the entire street – it’s not very long and you will certainly not be disappointed at the architectural splendor.

Bavarian Mortgage and Exchange Bank
This building was constructed in 1896 by Emil Schmidt for the Bavarian Mortgage and Exchange Bank. It’s easy to see why this building is designated as an official monument on the Bavarian Monument List. Today it houses the chic restaurant Pageou.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is the Palais Neuhaus-Preysing
