The Isartor is located at the eastern end of the historic old town. The name of the city gate also refers to the nearby Isar river. Because our hotel was (this time) located in the eastern part of Munich, the old city gate was a...More

It is one of the three remaining gates out four that outlined the city wall during the Medieval period. It houses some sort of museum but we didn't get to see it. Worth a quick visit, especially if you are a history buff ...

Of itself the Isartor is much nicer than the Sendlingertor, but it's just sitting there without any charm. I would imagine that this changes when the Christmas market is in full swing, but this was August.

Best visited in December when you can enjoy the small Christmas market and the very famous drink "Feuerzangenbowle".

The hotel I frequently stay in, the Hotel Torbräu, is adjacent to the impressive Isartor, one of the surviving medieval gates to the city of Munich. This gate provides a number of photo opportunities, and is well worth seeing.

The easternmost of the three surviving medieval city gates derives its name from the river Isar which flows near it. The gate has three gothic arches topped by frescoes depicting a triumphal procession. The gate is flanked by two octagonal towers and a central tower...More

I have now been traveling in Europe for over 25 years and have been enjoying several visits to München. But the city hall and the Mayor is so full of themselves that they are not even contactable on issues like this! The reason I say...More
