Look up for this Fish Fountain in the Marienplaz next to the New Town Hall. The fish on top of the fountain looks so cute that if you have children, they would probably like this more than the other grandiose fountains elsewhere. Flanking the centre column of the fountain are three boys pouring water from their buckets. It is said... More

This is a fountain located on Marienplatz and in front of the Neus Rathus. There is a cute fish statue on the top part of the fountain and statue of 3 children at the lower part.

Whenever you want to do something with someone in the center of Munich it is actually this fountain which is the best place to meet. Different than the Marien statue in the centre of the square this fountain is round and smaller so you cannot miss the person you are meeting. Take the U-Bahn exit next to the fountain to... More

A beautiful piece of architecture found in Marienplatz. I really liked the blue of the water there and the little decorations on the fountain.

It is on the Marienplatz. When you want to meet someone, it is a good idea to name Fischbrunnen instaed of Marianplatz, because ti it too big. On sommer days it is nice to cool a little at the water.
