Isartor Tips (4)

Isartor Gate

If you walk down toward the Isar River from Marienplatz, you'll run into the Isartor Gate, which was built in 1337 as part of King Ludwig of Bavaria's medieval fortifications. It went through restorations by Friedrich von Gartner between 1833 and 1835 and again after damages sustained during World War II. In 1958 the ruin was donated to the Karl-Valentin Foundation, which then created a memorial to its namesake who was a famous comedian and folk singer. The facade of the Isartor is graced by a facade painted in 1835 depicting the Battle fought by King Ludwig of Bavaria in 1322 at Ampfing.

Isator

Dating back to the 14th century, this east gate is still in good condition-probably renovated some I imagine. This was built as a Medieval fortification by Ludwig of Bavaria. Today it houses the Valentin Museum; an actor and comedian of his time. It has been renovated in 1833 and again after WWII destruction

City gates

Its not that they are that much of a sight in themselves, but together, the city gates of München still shows the history of the city, and you get the feel for where the old wall was. Isartor in the picture is the most famous gate, and the biggest one too.
