“2 day wander around marienplatz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

No dislikes, very central especially to the hofbrauhaus and local foodies market. Marienplatz is surrounded by shops showing international goods and local Bavarian momentos, beer steins, pocket knives and the like

“A little touristy but still need to visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

When you need to get your trinkets to take home this is where most people go to get them. It was fun to people watch and to see the different types of people around. When you have a Hard Rock Cafe close by you know it will have a lot of tourist.

“Nice Plaza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Marienplatz is one of those places that if you're in Munich you have to go and see it. We were there a few times but never when the clock was in action. There are the ususal stores and cafes around the square with some smaller vendors offering fresh produce. It is a central point in Munich serviced by the train and it's easy walking from here to the Hoffbrowhaus and the markets which are fascinating.

“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.
