This gate is more than merely one of the ten entrances to the Imperial City; it was also the site of political announcements and decrees.

To enter the imperial city you have to pass through this wonderful and impressive doorway. In front of it you also get the tickets and should take a Combi-Ticket to see the main imperial tombs!

This is the place to take photos. The sheer beauty of the Imperial City needs time to enjoy it. They even have a shop inside where you can purchase cold drinks and even an ice-cream. Take a guide with you.

The main Southern gate way into The Citadel. Lots of lovers, honeymooners and schoolkids taking selfies. Go into the Citadel proper and don't waste too much time hanging out here.

The enormous walls can be identified as bulwark already from the distance. As closer you come as more impressive it becomes. It's the starting point for each tour through the Citadelle and Royal Palace.
