  • It's no big deal, only a portal. As Munich is a city that was completely rebuilt because of the war, this portal was rebuilt as in ancient times, but I honestly don't have a lot of fun to my view.

  • Historical place. Beginning of the main pedestrian shopping and entertainment streets. Somehow nothing special but without in any way)))

  • The Karl gate built in the 1300 century for the construction of the 2.Mauerrings formed the West exit of the former Munich. His Ritterburgartiges look corresponded to the time and served as a fortress. It was financed by the citizens of Munich like the whole 2.Mauerring. Through various privileges of Munich (coinage, market rights, bridge toll) they could afford it.
