The origin of Munich goes back to the 8th century and to a tiny monastic settlement known as "bei den Munichen", which is to say: by the monks. However, the actual founder of Munich is Duke Henry the Lion. He destroyed a toll bridge the Bishop of Freising had erected over the Isar near Föhring and then built another one in "Munichen" where he collected his own tolls. Duke Henry thus redirected the profitable salt road into Munich. Following the Bishop's protest, Emperor Frederick Barbarossa called a Reichs-Council held at Augsburg on June 14th, 1158. There, Duke Henry's act was publicly recognized, thus giving Munich its official "date of birth": June 14th, 1158. The city of Munich is celebrating this anniverary with a 2-day festival for its citizins and its visitors. This festival for the Munich citizins thrives on their active participation.
