Worth the walk. An impressive structure, but the highlight for us was the current art installation. Love is bigger than hate, love always wins.

This city gate is not unlike the Arc de Triomphe in France. It is well worth visiting and is architecturely very interesting.

Siegestor is just outside Munich University and if you take metro, get off at the Universitat station. Quite like the Arc de Triomphe, it is at the straight line joining Luwigstrabe and Leopoldstrabe. A beautiful architecture by itself, and on both sides there are two...More

Siegestor is a monumental city gate in Munich. It is a bit isolated from the majority of most sightseeing endeavours you are likely to plan. However, it is an attractive display of architecture and worth spending a few minutes to enjoy if you find yourself...More

The Siegestor (Victory Gate) is visible while on the hop on hop off tour, so it's not necessary to get off the bus if you only want a picture. It's easy to take a picture if you are sitting at the top of the bus...More

I understand the archway is attributed to Bavarian times (oh those were the days with plenty of statues and monuments abound). I also understand that the archway was partially destroyed during WW2. Terrific that it has been reconstructed and now dominates the view down Ludwigstraße....More

It's down the road from the Walking Man statue. If you're in Munich, it's a must stop by and get a picture. Very historical place.

Schwabing - Maxvorstadt Questions (2 Replies)
Had a great first visit to Munich last year, and am going back in September this year (before Oktoberfest). We stayed by Sendlinger Tor last year, thanks to those on this forum, but want to try a different area this year. We have a reservation at Pension am Siegestor, 5 Akademiestrasse (which I have spelled wrong, but I don't know how to properly make the letter/symbol in place of the double s.....). The questions are: 1. Is this Pension located in Schawbing proper? I know there has been...More

Thank you, Panda, fantastic information as always. We will definitely visit the Kaisergarten and I will sample the wiener schnitzel. Last year, had wiener schnitzel at the Ayinger restaurant across from the Hofbrauhaus that I thought was outstanding (as was the veal goulash), so I am looking forward to trying Kaisergarten's.
