The Nazis built two office buildings at the east end of the Königsplatz, along Arcisstraße – the Führerbau (Führer Building) and Verwaltungsbau (Administration Building), designed by architect Paul Ludwig Troost (during the Third Reich period, the entire street was named Arcisstraße, but the part south of Briennerstraße was renamed Meiserstraße after the war; this part (where the Verwaltungsbau is located) has recently been renamed Katharina-von-Bora-Straße). The Führerbau housed Hitler’s office and offices for his closest staff while in Munich. These buildings were only lightly damaged during the World War II bombings, and both still exist today. The Führerbau houses a music school, and the Verwaltungsbau houses museum offices and antiquities displays.
