Isartor, Munich

(4/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • Entrance to the old town from the isar. Very nice to see but nothing in particular. But you should see once.

  • Very large port with which to log on to the center when we passed there was so many people and we could see the towers and times of access.

  • One of the doors to the Center, one of the most monumental and well preserved. Between the river Isar and Marienplatz, is one of the icons of Monaco

  • 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.
  • Really nice and greatly in shape old city gate
  • The gate of munich old town
  • build in 1337 - home of the Valentin museum (free for 99 year old who are accompanied by their parents)
