Karolinenplatz is one of the older squares in the Maxvorstadt district. It is very beautiful and well kept, and surprisingly there are some outstanding cheap hotels near Karolinenplatz in Munich that are ideal for those on a budget. This square or place, as platz means in German, is different than many others in the city in that it forms a star shape and not a true square. The center of Karolinenplatz is also different in that a huge 95-foot obelisk forms the center focal point of the square. This monument was designed and constructed in 1833, to commemorate the over 30,000 Bavarian soldiers that died in Napoleon's 1812 campaign against Russia.
While the obelisk is visible from the budget hotels near the Karolinenplatz in Munich, there are other notable things to see. The Amerika Haus, a cultural meeting place, often hosts speakers and other events of interest to visitors and residents alike. Historical buildings from the years of Nazi rule are also present in Karolinenplatz, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.
