The building itself is amazing to study. The carvings all along the outside and gargoyles are amazing to see. The building is located in the Marienplatz which will be filled with tourists and surrounded by overpriced cafe's. But it's a must see if you are in Munich.

If you like architecture, then this is a beautiful and interesting building. The glockenspiel is worth seeing, too so make sure you know the times that it will play...I think it's about midday, and again about 5pm

Not only is the building beautiful. If you venture inside to the restaurant, you can elect to eat 'outside' in a courtyard in the center of the building. You can dine on good food and beer while admiring all the fine details of the amazing architecture. 5 stars!

Even from afar, it's a nice sight, sort of like a fairy tale castle. But if you can go near, observe the details of this building and you'll be further impressed.

The Rathaus in Munich is the type of building that you can stare at for hours, and not grow tired. Make sure to find a nice spot in the square to stand back and admire the stunning architecture of this building. You can also go inside the courtyard which has a nice Bavarian feel to it. A must for Munich!

Looks especially pretty at night time! Very hard to miss as it is in the middle of Munich (Marienplatz). Also make sure to take part in one of the free walking tours starting here every day around 11 (www.inmunichtours.com)

Gives a grand atmosphere to Munich. The piata in front was full of cafes but we found them a little pricey. Not a place if you do not like to eat pork.
