If you can plan your day so you can see one of the three times the glockenspiel chimes daily, DO IT! Although there ends up being quite a crowd, the attraction is so high up on the town hall that it doesn't really matter where you stand because you will see the 5 min show with bells and full character...

Great Location as in the heart of the town, at Marienplatz the most touristic square with too many shops and restaurants. New Town Hall (Neus Rathaus) at Marienplatz of Munich is a fantastic building of 19th century,with great architecture, interesting to be visited.The glockenspiel plays three times daily at 11:00, 12:00 and 5:00.

I will never forget how beautiful and amazing this building is. Everytime you look at it, you find something new. It is definately a work of art. I can't begin to imagine the work that had to have gone into the creativity of the plans and the construction. I took so many pictures.

Always a spectacular sight, with its glockenspiel, the New Town Hall looks especially post-card like at Christmas time, with the Christmas Bazaar in the city center with the enormous Christmas tree. If it is snowing, it looks even more like a frozen moment from a time long past.

Although it says it is the New Town Building the building itself looks more ancient than the one that is called the old Town Building. Certainly this place is great to see especially with the Glokenspiel at 5 pm.

The Neues Rathaus hosts the city government. It's a huge building, that was built in the late 19th century in a Gothic architecture. The main tower is open for visit and houses the Glockenspiel, a 15 minute performance that takes place daily at 12pm and 5pm, don't miss it!
