There are three city gates we managed to find two on our visit. They are worth seeing at this time of the year there are Xmas markets everywhere no so lovely to take photos of.

This gate to the old medieval city wall is one of 3 still standing. But more importantly, there is a giant cauldron of fire during the Christmas season! The Feuerzangenbowle is located at Isartor serving a gluhwein that'll knock you off your feet.

Although there is not much to see, there is some nice architecture. Nearby is one of the best English speaking bike shops (Guten Bike). It is also nearby Deutsche Museum (a technical museum, not a history museum).

It's nice to look when you're in the area. If I understood this well, this is one of the 3 gates of the Munich fortress that remained from the city walls.

The city gate was a nice point of reference as to where we were. It was rebuilt as were many of the structures in Europe. Our running tour guide took us to all the gates of old Munich.

The Isartor is located at the Isartorplatz close to the Isar and is named after the river. It is one of the four main gates of the medieval city wall. Today Isartor is home of the Karl Valentin Museum, a famous Bavarian comedian and actor.
