Continue walking west on Maximilianstraße for a couple of blocks until reaching Maximilian Bridge, named after Bavarian king Maximilian II. It is one of several bridges spanning the Isar River. Maximiliansbrücke also provides access to the narrow Prater Island (Praterinsel). Fans of Greek mythology will enjoy the Athena Pallas statue by Franz Drexler. The goddess of wisdom and war is depicted wearing a helmet with a Gorgoneion on her chest. She is holding Nike, the goddess of victory.
