This broad avenue and the Siegestor gate in the background are landmarks of the city.time lapse, The Siegestor (en: Victory Gate) in Munich, is a three-arched triumphal arch crowned with a statue of Bavaria with a lion-quadriga. The Siegestor is located between the Ludwig Maximilian University and the Ohmstraße, where the Ludwigstraße (south) ends and the Leopoldstraße (north) begins. It thus sits at the boundary between the two Munich districts of Maxvorstadt and Schwabing.Lions were likely used in the quadriga, instead of the more usual horses, because the lion was a heraldic charge of the House of Wittelsbach, the ruling family of the Bavarian monarchy.The gate was originally dedicated to the glory of the Bavarian army;Today, the Siegestor is a monument and reminder to peace. After sustaining heavy damage in World War II, the gate was reconstructed and restored only partially.wiki
