The Maximilianplatz is a park-like place in Munich , which on the border of the municipalities Altstadt-Lehel and Maxvorstadt is. It used to be known as Dultplatz .


After the abandonment of the medieval fortifications, a 300 by 60 meter square was created as part of the planning for a city expansion - today's Maxvorstadt - which was laid out in the style of a miniaturized English garden . This square was named Maximiliansplatz around 1808 and was the largest square in the city. In addition to the annual masses (Dulten) - the Epiphany, Jacobi and Christkindldult - the large horse markets during Lent and the largest military parades were held here.

From 1908 to 1975 the Regina-Palast-Hotel stood at Maximiliansplatz 5 ; today it is Haus Regina . From 1978 to the end of 1994 the chef Eckart Witzigmann ran the “Aubergine” restaurant there. It was the first German restaurant to be listed in the Michelin Guide with the highest rating of three stars.
