Sendlinger Tor, Munich

3.8
#71 of 333 in Things to do in Munich
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.

  • Very small rooms but with all comforts, breakfast is not included even though the booking site left to you, but other than that the hotel is ideal for families, because the area is very quiet and especially near downtown. PS: Reserved parking when booking because there are few available otherwise to 200 meters on the same sidewalk parking just 20 euros per day. Very small rooms but equipped with all comfort, breakfast is not included even if the booking site was left out of it, but however the hotel is ideal for families because the area is very quiet and especially very close to the center. PS: Reserve your car at the time of booking because there are only a few available but at 200 meters on the same sidewalk as there is a large car park for only 20 euros per day.

  • A large gate at the southern outskirts of the old town. Close to the Christmas market goods to be sold in Christmas market time.  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!
