Take a look inside, particularly for US connection

Beautiful architecture makes this a must see on a visit to Munich. Climb to top floor for area where U.S. is recognized in stainglassed windows.

Everyone seems to visit or meet at the New Town Hall: several walking tours meet and start there, there are the 11 am, 12 pm and 5 pm glockenspiel shows that seem to captivate people of all ages with its whirling mechanical animated figures, and of course...great people watching. During the Christmas Markets the mayor and other dignitaries give a... More

We went into the Neus Rathaus to take the lift to the top on the 9th floor, where the views were spectacular. When we came down to the 4th floor by lift we then walked down through the other floors, strolling along each floor as we went. What a lovely place to visit. I feel that people miss out on... More

This building always attract lots of attention and it is worth a look, given the age and the history of the building. The beautiful old clock is a real attraction to watch on the hour. Recommended to see.

Our stop on the S-Bahn delivered us to the Marienplatz where we entered the square in front of the Rathaus. Great was to start the visit to Munich. This is a beautiful traditional rathaus. Hang around for the glockenspiel.

Don't just admire the outside of the New Town hall, be sure to go in and take the small elevator up from under the glockenspiel. It is only 2.5 euros and well worth it.

Though because of the shortage of time we were unable to wait for the figures show (which I believe must be good) we walked inside the building and did a bit of shopping from the ground floor shops. Don't forget to show your kids the green dragon that's climbing up from the corner of the building.

Visited the centre of Munich like most tourists to watch the glockenspiel at 11am. It was a real delight and worth the wait - but be warned it can take forever to film! There are three parts of the movement so remember to wait for the bird at the top (at the very end). Afterwards be paid to go up... More
