Sendlinger Tor and Isartor, München (Munich)

It's always nice to go for a walk in Munich. Here in the early morning you see the medieval Gothic Gates (in German Tor) of the ancient city wall. There are still three gates in the city. Here you see the Sendlinger Tor and the Isartor. They were both build early 14th century. On the Isartor you find a fresco painting which displays the triumph of Ludwig from Bavaria after the victory against the Habsburgers in 1322.

Het is altijd leuk een wandeling te maken door München. Hieronder zie je de Sendlinger Tor en de Isartor in de vroege ochtend, twee van de drie nog bestaande gotische stadspoorten. Beide poorten werden gebouwd in het begin van de 14de eeuw. Op de Isartor vind je een fresco van de overwinning van Ludwig van Bayern tegen de Habsburgers in 1322.
