This is a fun thing to watch in Marienplatz. The glockenspiel chimes at 11am and noon and there is a little historical performance of music and figurines. If you go to the coffee shop level of the book shop Hugendubel in Marienplatz you get a direct view across to the glockenspiel.

A stunning piece of architecture to see, amazing detail in the construction and such a prominent building in the city. The clock tower show is a must see when visiting Munich, only if it is just the once. And having a stein of beer in the square on a beautiful hot day is always a pleasure

It's an amazingly beautiful building with the lovely glockenspiel clock to view. Inside the Munich employees are hard at work and in the centre is their canteen which you can use. Stop for a drink here (very reasonable) whilst enjoying the courtyard views and waiting for the glockenspiel clock to chime!

Its almost always crowded and all tables... More

The building itself is an attractive, ornate structure. The area is a very nice one for lots of reasons. The clock with the performers circling at certain hours reenacting a wedding celebration IIRC is not to be missed.

Wonderful atmosphere and food. I had lamb sausages, gravy, green beans. Tasty. Another member of our party had mushroom soup and enjoyed it. Did not feel rushed.
