Photo: Siegestor Historic Landmark Munich Germany

The Siegestor, also known as the Victory Gate, is a historic landmark situated in a busy area in Munich Germany as can be seen with the flowing traffic. The gate was built in 1852 and sustained some damage during bombing in WWII.

The Siegestor is called the Victory Gate in English and is a historic landmark located in the Schwabing district in the City of Muenchen, or Munich as it is known in English. This landmark is situated along a busy road. As night has fallen on the city, the Siegestor is lit up with lights and even the quadriga on the top is lit so that it is clearly visible.

The Siegestor was first commissioned by King Ludwig I of Bavaria in 1843, and was completed in 1852. It was built and named the Victory Gate to celebrate the win of Bavarian army in the Napoleonic War. It is built in the same style as the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and the Arch of Constantine in Rome.

During World War II when the city of Munich was heavily bombed the Siegestor suffered quite a bit of damage and had to be rebuilt. The reconstruction was completed in the late 1950's and then recently the quadriga on top were given a clean and were fixed up as well. ... continue below the picture...
