Sendlinger Tor

SENDLINGER TOR: The Sendlinger Tor used to be the gateway to rolling hills, farms and villages. Now it’s the gateway to a trendy cultural centre and a thriving gay scene. The times, they are a’changin.

The gate marks the southern tip of the Altstadt and connects to the Isarvorstadt and Glockenbachviertel. Leading up north is the shopaholics' dream-street Sendlinger Strasse.

The gateway was built in 1813 as part of the second effort to build a wall around medieval Munich.
It used to have a large, central tower which was done away with in 1808.
Two smaller towers flanking a wide archway remain. There’s a few interesting shops built into the old city walls.
