This lovely gateway was the entrance to a very relaxed pedestrian area, broad streets with interesting shops and restaurants. All in the old town of Munich. Spent a very pleasant evening in this area, and would recommend it to anyone.

This gate provides a good photo opportunity as you enter the old city. You will be surrounded by by people as it is in a very busy shopping area.

From Banhof/Central Station side, you go through this gate and nice structure to enter the Old City and follow down to Marienplatz and all the activities.Also around there are too many shops and thing to see, nice 360 view of Munich entrance.

This gate appeared by accident as we explored the city. That is the joy of meandering around a city you don't know, on foot. I don't know the history of this wall but it was a nice photo op.

Have a look at these gates, they are old and well kept. You are in the area any way so it is worth a quick look. Hard to get a picture because of the people also having a look.

This gate is the first of the old gates after the main train station. Passing through these gates you will be guided to the Marian platz most of the centeal sights of Munich.

We were here while walking around the festivities at Christmas. It's a great area around christmas time with ice-skating nearby and a short walk through the mall to Marienplatz.
