In 1958, the palace was beautifully restored by Erwin Schleich. The plaster figures, attributed to Johann Baptist Zimmermann, are especially fine, particularly the Wessobrunner Madonna above the portal. The building now serves as the municipal funeral department.

Popularly known as New Main Synagogue, this synagogue features a box like structure made of travertine stone while the roof is fitted with a cubical glass. A bronze mesh covers the glass and renders this religious edifice an appearance of a biblical tent. In Hebrew, Ohel Jakob translates into 'Jacob's Tent.' This synagogue represents the jounrey of Israelites through the arid desert. At the entrance of Ohel Jakob Synagogue, "How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob!" verse from the Old Testament is inscribed in arresting calligraphy.

St Peter's Church, also known fondly as Alter Peter (Old Peter) is the oldest parish church in Munich. The valiant visitor who manages to climb the 306 steps to the top will have an incomparable view of the city and on a clear day, the Alps look close enough to touch. St. Peter's was named after the old hill on which it stands, the Petersberg. There was apparently a chapel on the site before Munich was founded, which was then replaced with a Romanesque structure in the 11th century and later a Gothic building. In the 14th century, the double-tower was redeveloped to form the single tower facade of the church which remains today. Over the centuries, St. Peter's underwent even more changes, mainly in the Baroque and Rococo periods.
