It is a good place to see beautiful architecture and to find some souvenirs. There are some grife stores to buy too with good prices. The restaurants are not so good and they are very expensive.

The Marienplatz area is layed back and very clean. If you are interested in old architecture and Traditional buildings this is a good place to see. We will be going again earlier in the day to see it in better light

Marienplatz has the most important building in Munich you will want to see. You can get there on the S Bahn using pretty much any of the lines and come out right in the middle of the square.

Everyone who comes to Munich should go to Marienplatz, its the hub of Munich really. The gothic Rathaus is awe inspiring and presents a great show for the onlookers every hour or so! Well worth it. It gets crowded but you will cope. From here...More
