Angel of Peace (or Friedensengel) is a monument in Munich, which rises on the right bank of the Isar at the end of the Prince Regent Bridge. The monument was erected to celebrate the 25 years of peace following the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. It was designed by architect Jacob Möhl in 1891 on a commission of the city council and was built in 1896-99 by Heinrich Düll, Max Heilmeier and Georg Pezold. The monument stands on the Massimilian Terraces, set along the Isar shore; the latter are supported by a wall where there are three niches. The cave, which recalls a cave, is the backdrop to the fountain that faces it. A staircase with decorative balustrade leads to the monument itself. The base on which the monument stands is shaped like an open hall with caryatids and columns. In this room there are portraits of the generals and sovereigns involved in the war: the emperors William I, Frederick III and William II, the sovereigns of Bavaria Ludwig II, Ottone and Luitpold, Otto von Bismarck, generals Helmuth Karl Bernhard von Moltke, Albrecht von Roon, Ludwig von der Tann, Jakob von Hartmann and Siegmund von Pranckh. This hall was realized bearing in mind the model of the Eretteo of the Acropolis of Athens. Inside the hall there are also mosaics representing allegories of peace, war, victory and culture. Above the room there is a 25-meter-high Corinthian column on top of which stands the statue of the 6-meter-high Angel of Peace, which imitates the statue of Nike of Paionio on Mount Olimpo.
