Isartor, Munich
(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Isartor stands tall as only one left of the four main medieval gates in Munich, built in 1337 to serve as a defense for the city. You can see much of the restoration performed on the gate and its central tower, bringing it back to its former glory. Don't miss the frescoes that tell the story of Emperor Louis's victorious return after the Battle of Mühldorf. Inside the gate, in a curious change of subject matter, you'll find a museum dedicated to Karl Valentin, a comedian and actor. For Isartor and beyond, use our Munich itinerary planner to get the most from your Munich vacation.

  • Preserves intact the original structure of the 14TH century, has a fresco representing the triumphal entry into the city of the Emperor Luis IV the Bavarian. It is the door that we liked and the most impressive.

  • From here, go down and go down the River in a southerly direction on the right bank up to the zoo. You can enjoy the peace and beauty of the river Isar. One of the jewels of this city!

  • Should you see direction Maximilianeum definitely may be on the way from the new town hall out of the pedestrian zone. Beautiful architecture.

  • Nice and historical square. The gate at Isartor is one of the oldest still stand constructions in Munich. It originaly belonged to its city walls. There is a museum about a popular local 20th centuary comedian known as Karl Valentin. The square is close to many ineresting attraction (Deutsches Museum is just a 10 minutes walk away ) and good restaurant. Good location to look for a hotel.
  • Gorgeous part of historic Munich with religious murals on the side. Fun view if visiting.
