    The Siegestor is a triumphal arch in Munich with a total height of 24 meters. The quadriga on the archway stands out here in a very special and visible way - it shows the Bavaria framed by four lions.
    The gate is located about one kilometer north of the Feldherrnhalle and separates the Ludwigstraße, which ends there, from the Leopoldstraße and is thus the border between the districts of Maxvorstadt and Schwabing.

    Highlight for me at present also the Ambigramm sculpture of the artist Florentine white from steel, with rusty surface: Love - Hate ... a emblematic message!

    The Siegestor is located about one kilometer north of the Feldherrnhalle and separates the Ludwigstraße, which ends there, from the Leopoldstraße, which has its beginning here. This marks the Siegestor the border between the two Munich districts Maxvorstadt and Schwabing. It has a height of 24 meters. With the Siegestor Friedrich von Gärtner succeeded more than a copy of the Arch of Constantine. The columns, set on high pedestals, emphasize the clear vertical structure. The massive woodwork presses on a heavy load similar to the harmoniously rhythmic three arches. This gives the triumphal arch the architectural power to catch the train of the Victory Gate and to pass it on to the fields and meadows that still dominated in 1852. The enthralling quadriga floats above the victory gate and emphasizes its central axis. At the same time the Bavaria drives on the Quadriga out of town into the fields and meadows looking towards "the Bavarian army" as the inscription on the north side reveals. Johann von Halbig delivered the colossal four-horse-drawn car from Löwen to the model of Johann Martin von Wagner's design for Bavaria, which Friedrich Brugger modeled.

    From April 2019, the environment of the Victory Gate will be rebuilt. Parking away, more space for pedestrians and cyclists. The poplar avenue Leopoldstraße is to be extended to the Ludwigstraße. That had provided for discussions and will be interesting, also because even more with trees annoying Nazi buildings are to be veiled. But it will certainly be pretty, also because of the rose plantings around the trees. Even more photogenic, but then maybe a place to stop for a while.

    So imposing that even rally drivers on the Leopoldstr. is bypassed. The lions on the roof look to Schwabing and hold the buttocks out of Maxvorstadt. The destruction of the gate can still be seen from the Ludwigstr. out.
