Munich (München) Germany
Catherine on Stachus is a large square in central Munich and named officially Karlsplatz in 1797 after the unpopular Karl Theodor, Elector of Bavaria. Munich natives seldom use that name, calling the square instead Stachus, after the pub "Beim Stachus", once owned by Eustachius Föderl, that was located there until construction work for Karlsplatz began.
