Although there is not much to see, there is some nice architecture. Nearby is one of the best English speaking bike shops (Guten Bike). It is also nearby Deutsche Museum (a technical museum, not a history museum).

The city gate was a nice point of reference as to where we were. It was rebuilt as were many of the structures in Europe. Our running tour guide took us to all the gates of old Munich.

The Isartor is located at the Isartorplatz close to the Isar and is named after the river. It is one of the four main gates of the medieval city wall. Today Isartor is home of the Karl Valentin Museum, a famous Bavarian comedian and actor.

A well preserved part of Munich's history and a good starting point fro a walk all the way to the Old Town Hall (don't miss the "Glockenspiel") and the many restaurants and shopping places.

This one is a little more impressive than the Karls Gate, and so if you want to see one I'd suggest you start with this. It has a nice fresco dating to the 1800s and it is also relatively near the Metro (the stop is...More

I like medieval history and I came to see this place but it is only the small towers and the "entrance" to the city, no more ruins or walls... you can imagine them but everything around it is new and modern, it has a small...More
