Definitely go to the top to enjoy fabulous 360 views of munich - they've mapped out what you see to help you get your bearings. Then go stand in front of the clock tower at 11 am, noon or 5 pm to watch the entertainment when the clock sounds. It is crowded and touristy, but oh what fun!

You will find such city halls in every big European town. Disappointed to see that all doors inside were locked. One can see only outside view. Yes the place has huge shopping areas just outside. Just a good place to hang. Vienna city town hall is much better than this.

We expected to take our kids for a couple of hours one morning. We ended up staying for five hours and probably could have stayed another five if Dad had not insisted on visiting the Hofbrauhaus. The exhibits are interactive and our children (15,13,9) were fascinated by a good number of them. I would suggest physics, mining, and the flight... More

You should see it once! We went up the Church tower opposite in time for the 11am bells - lets just say that they aren't 'spectacular' but good to see once to get the Munich experience.

Be sure to take the elevator ride to the viewing deck overlooking old town...at sunset is amazing! The Rathaus plaza is also a great place to just hang out and watch people, performers, and get the vibe of Munich. Location is a great central spot in Munich near the marketplace, St. Peter's Cathedral, not far from the Hofbrau Haus and... More

Beautiful and impressive to see! If you want the best pictures (since it's too tall to photograph up close) go into Hugendubel (the bookstore) and ride the glass elevator. you can take awesome pics from there and the glass is clean enough to get a nice shot :)

If you go to Germany you need,have,and must visit New Town Hall (Neus Rathaus). The design of this building is incredible,you can stay hours looking at the Neus Rathaus, and still discovering a lot of new things. I took a lot of pictures of this amazing place. No regrets!!!
