Marienplatz to Karlsplatz

new town hall, munich
Unable to resist another shot of the New Town Hall, this time lit by the setting sun. 

From Marienplatz, we walked west, on Kaufingerstrasse and Neuhauser Strasse, to Karlsplatz Stachus.  Pedestrian streets lined with shops and department stores, Saint Michael's Church, and the Augustiner Bierkeller beer hall.

Neuhauser Strasse, pedestrian shopping street.

Michaelskirche, or St. Michael's Church

Karlstor, one of the three remaining gates from the old medieval city wall.

Across from Karlsplatz is the courthouse, or Justizpalast.  We were told the inside is quite impressive, with arches and grand staircases, and worth a visit.
