Good place for history.

We happen to be walking and found this gem! It's large and you can take nice pictures. It can be a history lesson . It's not fancy but has been there along time.

Beautiful, historic, a must see. Contains a crazy museum, the Karl Valentin Musäum (best for German speaking people, though), which shows water in a glass, saying: snow sculpture. If you love this kind of stuff (I definitely do), go ahead! There is a wonderful old café in the tower, too. From time to time, I really need to go there,... More

The gate is impressive and an awesome relic of history of the medieval city. The vendors and the contemporary gathering for the holidays make it even better.

Very cool and interesting bit of history. Fantastic that this door to the old city still stands. We were not able to venture up inside to the exhibit, but we were able to walk around and take it all in.

A place with long history. Near to Viktualien Market and Globetrotter shop. I wouldn't say a must visit place.

There were some mulled wine and snack shops around the Christmas time which opens until late. It was nice to have a quick drink in a lively atmosphere.

This is a beautifully preserved example of a town gate. The paintings are good and it was very close to Marienplatz and also there is a metro station right nearby. It is worth a short visit for sure.

This is a beautiful example of an original gate from the city walls. It has lovely frescoes on it and is well worth spending a little while wandering around both sides. Whilst we were there, there was a little Christmas market (food/drink stalls) in its shadows. There is also a museum based in the gate itself.

A wonderfully preserved example of a city gate with beautiful murals above the entrance. Easy walking distance from the city centre.
