The Justizpalast Munich (Palace of Justice) are two courthouses and administrative buildings in Munich.
The palatial (old) Palace of Justice was constructed in 1890-1897 by the architect Friedrich von Thiersch in neo-baroque style at the west side of the Karlsplatz (Stachus). The building of the Gründerzeit is dominated by a glass dome (67 meters). It houses the Bavarian Department of Justice and the District Court I of Munich.
Since the huge building turned out to be too small Friedrich von Thiersch constructed already in 1905 at the west side of the building the so-called New Justizpalast. This time he created the courthouse in strong contrast to the Justizpalast in red brick stone in northern neo-gothic style with two towers. The New Justizpalast houses the Bavarian Constitutional Court and the Higher Regional Court.
