Description
During the Middle Ages, the city of Munich was surrounded by a fortification wall with only four entrance gates. The wall was torn down in 1791, but three of the original gates remain. Karls Gate ... Read more
(Karlstor) is one of those original gates. Built in the 1300s, the gate originally had three towers. Although two of the towers remain, the tallest, central tower was destroyed in 1857 when gunpowder that was stored in the tower exploded. The gate, located on the popular Karlsplatz, is a popular tourist spot for taking pictures and enjoying the fountain in summer or ice skating in winter.

Karl's Gate is one of Munich's remaining medieval gates. It's located in Karlsplatz and essentially divides the new from the old city. It also serves as something of a bookend for pedestrian walks starting at Marienplatz.

Report
Local from Munich

Karls Gate is the western main gate of Munich's medieval city wall. It's right at the Karlsplatz (or Stachus). It is the perfect place to start a shopping trip. From there you go in the pedestrian zone with a lot of shops.
