Traditional German cuisine in the cellar of the Rathaus on the main square. The food is OK; but is overpriced and similar can be eaten in beer halls for a fraction of the price.

The building is very artistic and architecturally a visual treat. However the Glockenspiel show (takes place everyday at 10:00, 11:00 and 5:00 PM) is grossly overrated. The plaza in front of the Rathaus is a tourist magnate

We visited the NewTown Hall in Munich for the first time in August 2014.I have to say it was breath taking to see,! The architecture was amazing, so beautiful with all the flowers, and so clean all around it. Would love to visit and see it again and again,

At 11 and 12 each day the Marienplatz begins to fill with crowds awaiting the Glockenspiel on the Neues Rathous; this is the most wonderful chiming clock which has two sets of moving figures. The first are at a jousting tournament which culminates in one of the knights being knocked on his horse and below are the dancers which twirl... More

The clock is the essence. The Rathaus itself indeed is a historical building. But most people are coming for the clock. Note that it only moves at certain hours so please check beforehand.

Mind blowing experience - Germany at its best. Be there early, as the square gets crowded for people to enjoy the best view.

The New Town Hall is already many hundred years old, and has its style - and its Glockenspiel. The Town Hall is really a beautiful building. By the way: The Football team of Munich is celebrating here their championship, which they have good chances to win in every year. But you might not have a chance to visit this, since... More

After walking down to the square through a fairly architectually mundane shopping street your hit with this German masterpiece as you enter the square. Everyday at 11 and 12 the glockenspiel clock chimes and the mechanical characters on the main tower put on a bit of a show. The square is full around these times and the show lasts around... More

Nearly as good as Manchester Town Hall but without the bars and pubs. Put a tick in your box then hit the Aldstadt.

If you take away all the human beings trying to capture a picture of this place, it is quite lovely. It was way too crowded for my liking to truly be able to enjoy it. Nevertheless, i heard that you could pay 2 Euro and go up to one of the towers, overlooking the city. I saw pics taken from... More
