The old part of the city, on the western bank of the Isar River, has a number of baroque and rococo buildings, mostly built in the first half of the 18th century by the rulers of Bavaria, who were inspired by Italian models. In the center of the old section is the Marienplatz, a well-known square, which is dominated by the city hall, the ornate Neues Rathaus, built between 1867 and 1908.

Munich was founded in 1158 as a mint and marketplace by Henry the Lion, duke of Saxony. In 1255, the powerful Wittelsbach family, who ruled as the dukes of Bavaria, made the city their residence. Much of the modern development and splendid architecture of Munich date from the reigns of three kings of Bavaria. Heavily damaged during World War II, the city has been carefully rebuilt to a master plan that included reconstruction wherever possible.
