Georg Friedrich Ziebland (born February 1, 1800 in Regensburg , † January 24, 1873 in Munich ) was a German architect and builder.


Ziebland studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich with Karl von Fischer and Friedrich von Gärtner architecture . He was a fellow student of Joseph Daniel Ohlmüller , with whom he later often worked together (for example on the completion of Hohenschwangau). Ziebland has gone down in the history of architecture primarily through its further development of the round arch style, in particular through its terracotta and brick combination of the Abbey Church of St. Boniface, which is reminiscent of the early Christian and Byzantine architecture. This major work by Ziebland was created under the impression of a two-year study trip (1827–1829) to Italy, on which the Bavarian King Ludwig I had sent him to study the Roman basilicas. After his return to Munich, the king appointed him to the architecture committee to which he was a permanent member until 1867 and was appointed to its executive committee after Leo von Klenze's death in 1864. From 1854 he was the only one to bear the title of full member of the architecture committee , which was even recorded in the court and state handbook . In addition to his various construction contracts, Ziebland was active in the building administration as a senior building officer and later taught as a professor of architecture at the academy.

In 1864 Ziebland was awarded the Bavarian Maximilian Order for Science and Art and the Pour le Mérite for Science and Art .

His tombstone in Regensburg's Lazarus cemetery , the area of ​​which was later incorporated into the city park, is still there.
