Sendlinger Tor, Munich

3.8
#19 of 73 in Sightseeing in Munich
Landmark Tourist Spot
The oldest of the three remaining gates of Munich's ancient city walls, Sendlinger Tor was built during the second expansion of the city in the early 14th century as a gateway to the trade route to Italy. Today the Gothic gateway is covered with ivy and vines and stands between the historic old town and the suburb of Isar. From here, you can walk through one of the main shopping areas in Munich toward the bustling Marienplatz. A nearby plaza with the same name also provides a nice environment for resting your feet.

  • This was a pleasant part of town and more up-market with less people crowding the streets and free of traffic. The wall was interesting although there was little detail what it represented.  more »

  • Grand Old Gate of Munich.. one of the 3 surviving old gates of Munich. I suggest taking a walk from Sendlinger Tor to Marienplatz, it is one the prime shopping streets of Munich. During the Christmas time there are many small businesses selling food (sweet almonds and sausages) here.
  • Very nice door. We like to start here to walk down the pedestrian shopping zone that leads toward Marienplatz.
  • The architecture of the gate is amazing but there s nothing more to it. It's the start of a good shopping street.
  • Heart of Munich. The Tor itself is pretty enough, but it's also the start of the shopping streets. It's got a cute Christmas market come December.
  • My favorite gate of Munich. It is especially wonderful during late spring or summer!
