The Great Hall of the LMU - the history of a magnificent venue

A lecture by Dr. Katharina Weigand as part of a special event of the Center for Senior Studies Zentrum Seniorenstudium

In 1909, LMU's Great Hall was built in the form and design it is known for today: a magnificent Art Nouveau room with gods, an astronomical clock and many symbols that need to be deciphered. Before 1909, however, the university was ashamed of the state of the Great Hall from the time of Ludwig I, a dark hall in which the plaster was peeling and there were too few seats. The history of the Great Hall up to the first years after the Second World War will be traced here.

The event will be held in German. You can find more information on the website of the Zentrum Seniorenstudium.
