The Orlando house and its history
The name Orlando house comes from a famous renaissance composer, Orlando die Lasso (about 1532 – 1594). He was born in Belgium, went in 1553 and as a bandmaster to Rome. From 1564 he was bandmaster of Munich’s royal band (Hofkapelle). At that time the band was part of Munich’s royal Residence only a view steps away from the Orlando house.
The history of the Orlando house is very interesting. The foundation goes back to the 16th century when Orlando di Lasso lived there. At the end of the 19th century Max Littmann reconstructed a neo renaissance building based on the historic model, very similar to the “Hofbräuhaus” that is also at Platzl.
