A beautiful piece of architecture found in Marienplatz. I really liked the blue of the water there and the little decorations on the fountain.

It is on the Marienplatz. When you want to meet someone, it is a good idea to name Fischbrunnen instaed of Marianplatz, because ti it too big. On sommer days it is nice to cool a little at the water.

I love this town square! The fountain is always on and the water is so clear! Great place to just sit with a book or enjoy the weather (and occasional mime). Great spot!

I find it hard to review a fountain but I guess in Munich this is much loved. It's not huge or especially fancy and beautiful. However as said several times before, it does serve as THE meeting point in Marienplatz for locals and tourists alike and is a good place to people watch.

If you're in Marienplatz, stop and see the Fischbrunn. It is beautiful to see and only takes a few minutes to admire the fountain and take a photo.

As the original fountain was destroyed in WWII, this mid 1950's one is a nice addition to the already beautiful Marienplatz. As the fountain is a very central meeting place for tourists groups, it's almost impossible to take a photo of it without someone being in the frame.

I heard it's a favorite place to meet by the locals but as the landmark, it's nothing special. I didn't even notice it the first time I passed by!

It's a fountain and everyone meets there. Choose a coffee shop instead to meet at. At least you can have some coffee and cake while you are waiting and not having to inhale cigarette smoke of the other people waiting.
