Sendlinger Tor, Munich
(3.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Sendlinger Tor a part of your Munich vacation plans using our Munich family vacation planner.

  • We were housed a block away from Sendlinger Tor. We spent every day and I loved stopping to look at it awhile. Very cute to photograph.

  • The gate itself offers no attractions. It is only at the beginning of the shopping street. But, if you come here, it's worth a stop for a snapshot.

  • Reception that couldn't do anything (claimed us poor and each one thing) small rooms, no basic services (or hair dryer, dirty shower curtains,...) the elevator took centuries to get off, if seen,... television) For never to return. recommended 0

  • One of the last three remaining town gates of Munichs' old town. Worth a visit. The Sendlinger Strade is a nice street to go shopping.
  • Nice square in the south of the old town. The gate at Sendlinger Tor is one of the oldest constructions in the city. Close to other interesting attractions.
  • Interesting tower but not much to see other than that. There's plenty of shops and a big church nearby though.
  • Historical place in the middle of munich. A lot of bars and restaurants a surrounded. The big shoppingstreet "Sendlingerstraße" beginns here. A must see for every tourist.
  • Nice shops nearby, a lot of options to go shopping or eating. Good public transport connections, right in the heart of Munich.
