3.9/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Isartor is one of four remaining gates of the middle ages. It was built in the 19th century. XIV. Very easy to get to him, both by subway (line S) as walk. For who goes from Marienplatz, just follow the street behind the Altes Rathaus.
