Bike Touring Highlight
The Siegestor is a large round arched gate built around 1850, modeled on the Arch of Constantine in Rome. Ludwig I built the gate to honor the Bavarian army. The Siegestor, the Munich triumphal arch, is the transition from Ludwigstraße to Leopoldstraße. In addition, the Siegestor forms the northern end of a visual axis that begins with the Feldherrenhalle at Odeonsplatz. North of the Siegestor begins the Leopoldstraße, the main boulevard of the trendy Schwabing district. On the Siegestor you can see a bronze sculpture of Bavaria with four lions looking out of town.
