  • I don't know if this is a permanent exhibition or not. On the day we went there was exhibition of photos, clothes and other materials of German comedians. For me it was more interesting to enter and view the building inside. Is small and you have to pay to enter.

  • One of the 3 left (originally 4) that formed the entry to the city. Worth viewing as you investigate Munich.  more »
  • It is one of the two doors to Monaco, the other is to Sendlinger Tot, this particular colleague karlplatz at Marienplatz, with a splendid walkway and full of beautiful buildings on both sides

Where to stay in Munich

The St. Paul district is the site of Munich's yearly Oktoberfest and offers easy access to the city center. You may be able to find accommodation deals in the Am Schlachthof district, which is populated with small businesses and artists. Glockenbachviertel is the center of the city's nightlife with bars, clubs, and restaurants lining the streets. In contrast, Am alten Südfriedhof is a quiet residential district.
