The ''Siegestor'', a triumphal arch originally dedicated to the glory of the Bavarian army, stands at the northern end of the Ludwigstraße boulevard. Heavily damaged during World War II, it was reconstructed as a reminder to peace. Just south of the arch is the ''Geschwister-Scholl-Platz'', a square named after the founders of a resistance movement during World War II. The circular plaza, with two large fountains in its center, is surrounded by the buildings of the main campus of the University of Munich (LMU).
