If you are interested in the history of the Bavarian capital, the exhibition “Das Isartor - Geschichte und Geschichten” (The Isar Gate – History and Stories) tells the story of the Isartor and through it, the history of Munich. The Isartor at the Isartorplatz in Munich is one of four main gates of the medieval city wall. It served as a fortification for the defence and is the most easterly of Munich's three remaining gothic town gates (Isartor, Sendlinger Tor and Karlstor). The gate (German: Tor) is located close to the Isar and was named after the river.
The Exihibition opens tomorrow, July 21, 2016 at 7pm at the Valentin-Karlstadt-Musäum, which is conveniently located within the Isartor itself. The Valentin-Karlstadt-Museeum is located at the Gate since 1959. The life and influential career of Karl Valentin and his charming partner Liesl Karlstadt are displayed employing a mix of informative units and peculiar surprises. Testimonials include personal objects, original documents, photographs, post cards, and the Valentinian Panoptikum of differently expressed items like the legendary winter toothpick and the melted snow sculpture as well as numerous audio and video features. So if you also want to find out something about the famed German sense of humor, the museum (in this case – museeum) is the right place to begin (notice the funny opening hours and the ticket prices). The exhibition will remain open until November 6, 2016.
Opening Hours: open daily (except for Wednesdays) from 11:01am to 17:59pm
A regular ticket costs €2.99.
