Right in the middle of this handsome square is the Rathaus with its extraordinary clock. Check your guidebook for the times when it is struck and see the fascinating mechanical figures do their thing. If you have binoculars with you, take them along. They will make the experience even more interesting.

You need to see the inside as well as the impressive outside. Beautiful clock music at all (if I remember correctly) full hours. A must watch, you will notice as hundreds of people are staying at the place looking up :o) That is also a funny see.

Standing across from the New Town Hall daily at 11:30 and noon you can view the Glockenspiel go through all its actions. It's best to stand against the buildings facing the clock so not to have someone too tall in front of you if you are taking pictures.

Fabulous architecture in city centre with beautiful fountains close by, lovely scenes during the glockenspiel performance, arrive early as large tourism crowds do gather in advance. The lift to the top roof deck also provides good views, however churches and cathedral nearby offer higher view point.

Very very over rated and a huge disappointment. The venue itself is amazing and worth a beer and a look but the food is average at best and served with a snarl and a sneer. Traditional food dumbed down for the masses and idiotic tourists who don't know any better. Have a beer' look around and bugger off!

The Glockenspiel is on the front of the New Town Hall which in itself makes this worth visiting. The architecture is interesting.

Exiting the s-Bahn to Marienplatz station you are in front of this wonderful building. I was just staring at it for almost 15' doing nothing else! It has this clock that chimes every hour and at 5 in the afternoon some figures start dancing, representing three famous German fairy tales!

The so called "new" town hall of Munich is not really a new building. It's an almost 150 years old building inside the very old town centre. It's called the "new" town hall, because the old one was to small for the growing municipality in the mid of the 19th century. So the city council decided to build a new... More
