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 ...

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.

It’s easy to forget Munich’s medieval past but this gateway serves as a reminder of what was. It’s close by the river (hence the name) and offers a tantalising glimpse of history. Well worth a look
