Siegestor is just outside Munich University and if you take metro, get off at the Universitat station. Quite like the Arc de Triomphe, it is at the straight line joining Luwigstrabe and Leopoldstrabe. A beautiful architecture by itself, and on both sides there are two...More

It's down the road from the Walking Man statue. If you're in Munich, it's a must stop by and get a picture. Very historical place.
