Thats really something

This building is really worth the look. So huge, so bombastic and so incredibly large it is hard to believe that it is just a rathouse and is still in use.

I loved the gothic style and the amazing glockenspiel which is the fourth largest in Europe. Dont' miss the performance at 11am and 5pm!

I don't remember at what hour, maybe at 11 or 12 in the afternoon, but some of the statues in the tower begin to move showing the history of a wedding and also the history of how the Bavarians beat a green dragon (which represents the plague).

This new townhall finished in 1908 in Gothic style recalls a lot the one in Brussels. Its Glockenspiel (the big clock on the tower on the left side of the facade) jousts daily at 11am, 12 noon and 5pm (the late one only in summer May-Oct). It is not only ringing, it shows little scenes: a wedding which happened in... More

Not the most advertised of sights in Munich but taking the lift to the top of the tower was fantastic! Great views of the city. Good value too!

Take a seat in one of the available places around. Order coffee, tea, soda of beer, whatever your preference. Seat down and look at this site, like what I said when I was there. I can look and admire the beauty of this whole day!

Although it was only added to the building in 1907, to look at it you’d think the Glockenspiel was hundreds of years old. The figures of the Glockenspiel are life size and I especially liked the jousting knights on horseback. The Bavarian knight always wins. While others stood on top of 5 foot snow drifts, we sat across the square... More

Didn't go into the building but beautiful exterior! Impressive structure and very extensive, intricate detail on the exterior. Definitely worth a visit and makes for a very good photograph!
