Marienplatz is just amazing place to be I have been very lucky to experience amazing work of art surrounded the square. At night the whole square is absolutely beautiful and romantic.

“Nice walking tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

We followed Rick Steves' walking tour of the area, visited several sights listed & also did our share of shopping. This is a bustling area, plenty of people & plenty of atmosphere. Although the day was rainy, we still had a good time ducking in & out of the various sights & shops. We also got to see the glockenspiel do it's thing.

“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.
