“Free time travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

An opportunity to view middle Ages culture and art. Shows are twice a day. You have to be early to get a seat at a café on the platz. Otherwise stand and enjoy a real show...even includes jousting Knights as the peasants dance

Lovely to sit down for a meal against the backdrop...can't say that for the quality of food at the restaurant though

“Loved the Marienplatz!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

So much going on, so much to see. Loved the Glockenspiel and the market. Restaurants, cobblestone walkways, cafes, and bakeries. Lots of people walking around and things to look at. Saw a man with his pet goose in the basket of his bicycle! If you ge hungry try the Rischart bakery for a sweet treat. Also convenient access to S-Bahn and U-Bahn trains.

“Great walking and shopping area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I loved walking the streets of Marienplatz, so much history, beer gardens, shops etc. There are some truely remarkable sights, when you think how we leveled the city in WW ll and you see it today it amazing. Some of the best meals I have had in Germany were here at the Mairenplatz. The Christmas Mart is amazing and the ice skating rink that is set up for all to enjoy.
