Karlstor in Munich, Germany

Karlstor is one of the main gates in the old city of Munich in Bavaria, Germany. It is the most important buildings dominating Karlplatz, a square in front of Karlstor. Karlstor, a gothic gate of the demolished medieval fortification, the rondell before the gate and the neo-baroque Justizpalast (Palace of Justice).

Here is an image I took during our visit last August 2010.

In front of the Karlstor is a big fountain during the summer period. In winter an open-air ice rink is installed there. The underground contains a large shopping center. Also between Stachus square and Marienplatz the main pedestrian area of the city (Neuhauser Strasse / Kaufinger Strasse) houses numerous shops and restaurants. The Karlsplatz (Stachus) U-Bahn and S-Bahn station is located below the square. The Stachus also serves as a hub for the city’s tramway system, located on Altstadtring, the Old Town’s orbital road system.
