The facade of the town hall is really spectacular! Don't miss the Glockenspiel that performs twice a day. Hundred or even thousand started to gather around to get a glimpse of the show. We managed to make it just in time!

Reach there 30 min before 11.00 am or 12.00 noon. There is a large clock on the front side of the new town hall building. Some dolls are there below the clock which dances as soon as the clock reaches these hours. It is called glockenspiel show. Huge crowd gathers to watch this show. So you should go early to... More

Great main square with shops and cafes surround this beautiful building. Check times of the clock show - on the hour two times a year during the summer. Great people watching and a taste of history. Must see!

Almost everyone knows here, and everyone has to come to this place while visiting Munich. I had great experience enjoying the folk musicians playing a song that I am familiar with. I stayed there and listen to them until getting dark, loved it.

Neue Rathaus is a beautiful building right on Marienplatz. So much to see on the square and this is one of the main events. Definitely worth a visit!

Over the top gothic exterior and glockenspiel. But also go to top of the tower for excellent view of Munich.

The Rathaus is a central attraction, with its tower complete with glockenspiel. Make sure you go up the tower, go into the entrance look for the elevator on the left hand side and take it up to the ticket office to the tower. The views are great ! Then as you come downstairs again look for the stained glass windows... More

It's impossible to go to Munich and avoid seeing this masterpiece in Marienplatz. Beautiful architecture with sculptured pieces in the front.

We and our two girls (8 and 12) loved exploring the inside of this beautiful building. Stained glass windows, wonderful architecture, beautiful stairways and seemingly endless places to explore. Views from 9th floor were worth the cost to go up. We could have spent much more time here, but dragged the girls outside to see the 5pm Glockenspiel show. Don't... More
