“Stunning Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. The architecture of the buildings and the churches are simply amazing, such a unique place. There is a great buzz to the area, full of shops, cafes, bars and stalls. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this area on a number of occasions during our stay. It was lovely just to sit and watch musicians play and take in the atmosphere. Try not to miss the Glockenspiel, it is worth visiting for that alone.

“Munich in Autumn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Great venue for meeting people, plenty of bars and cafes. If you are lucky enough to be there at the correct time you can even see the Glockenspiel show on the Neues Rathaus. Don't miss if you are in Munich!

“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
