Propylaea

This immense gate by Klenze was inspired by the Propylaea on the Acropolis. The frieze represents the struggle for liberation against the Turks. The sculptures on the pediment show Otton I of Wittelsbach, king of Greece from 1832 to 1862. This gate is one of the three classical monuments surrounding Königsplatz.
