Cars dominated the public space - even in front of the Stadtmuseum.
St-Jakobs-Platz was a busy marketplace in the 19th century Angerviertel (Anger Quarter). During the Second World War, St-Jakobs-Platz and some of its surroundings were destroyed, and for a long time the brownfield site was used as a car park. Today, thanks to the Jewish Centre, the square has once again become one of the cultural centres of Munich. The entire square is paved, at right angles to the community centre. The granite paving ties in with the traditional paving of the old town, and contrasts with the travertine facades of the synagogue, the community centre and the Jewish museum. These buildings give Jakobsplatz its unmistakable identity, and special significance for Munich. The neighbouring Angerkloster (Convent) and the Munich City Museum also belong to this unique environment. Another attraction is the fountain in front of the Orag-Haus, with its 30 water jets. Along with Jakobsplatz, Sebastiansplatz, Unteranger and Corneliusstrasse, further inviting urban spaces can be accessed just a few steps from the Jewish Centre.
