Karlstor (Stachus)



The Karlstor which is also known as Stachus, especially among the Munich residents can be found between the central station and the Marienplatz. The gate itself marks the very center of the city. From its adjoinging Karls square up to Marienplatz the Munich´s main shopping mile is located.

The Karlstor is one of the three remaining outer city gates that have been built during the Middle Ages, was named after the Elector Karl Theodor.

Originally the Karlstor consisted of three towers, but the central tower was destroyed in 1857 when the gunpowder, that was stored in the tower exploded.

The two side towers have been designed by Italian architect Domenico Zannetti in 1861.
