People dressed up for carnival, a 60 piece band of all horns playing Pop and Rock music, costumery, beer, food, revelry all in one place. Easy to get to from anywhere via the Metro. Oh yeh don't forget the various Berliner donuts for Carnival which ends today on Fat Tuesday. the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote

The Glockenspiel performance lasts only a few minutes but it is worth seeing the figures dance around.

A lovely square in Munich. Gets really crowded when the clock is about to do its thing. Well worth seeing and plenty of restaurants/bars in the area

I mean...it tells time. It makes some sounds. It has some figures that rotate on a track. I guess it's cool? You have to go see it when in Munich but temper your enthusiasm.

Where else can you go to see the moving figurines on the clock. This is a definite stop for tourists to see the Glockenspiel and it is right by the Hofbrauhaus

We arrived about 15 minutes before the glockenspiel came alive. Well worth the wait. There is a tower near by you can climb and get a even better view.

But more fun to watch the tourists watching the Glockenspiel! Expect a sea of people with cameras and phones recording it.

This is a must see when in Munich! We watched it several different times while in the area. It plays 3 times a day and takes about 10 min. The top goes first then the bottom. Very charming! We really loved seeing this famous landmark in person! Don't miss it!
