  • One of the access gates to the center of Munich, for us initial stop and background to make group photos, with thematic sweatshirts for the oktoberfest, and still starting point to get to the Marienplatz and the whole old town.....

  • It is one of the medieval gates of access to the city. Beautiful in its essential lines, easy to reach from Marienplatz, strolling comfortably until the end of the Neuhauserstrasse. I recommend seeing it in the evening illuminated by the lights and public lighting that surrounds it.

  • A piece of fortifications from the medieval ages. From a historical point of view - it is an interesting attraction. From the point of view of a simple tourist - it is informative but no more. Just the remaining piece of a not very sightly past.
  • A little slice of paradise in southern Germany. A must visit if you like to relax. Great for all ages.
