You will not miss Marienplatz if you are in Munich. You can easily get there by any kind of transportation, the stop has the same name. A lot of touristic places to eat and shops.

Munich is a magical city, be it for shopping, sight seeing or sampling the local beers. its best to start out here and get your bearings before heading out in whatever direction you choose. the buildings around Marienplatz are eclectic but work well with each other. the old town hall is impressive and reveals itself very well when coming up...
