A place to shop or have a stroll or find a pub with a beer. You would wonder were are the people, go underground and you will see another city within a city. Nice place to start to see Munich.

Nice building in Marienplatz. A must see building in Munich. You can go up the tower and look at Munich from top. View is good. The platz is good for shopping, eating and walking around.

Take the time to walk around this incredible building and check out every detail and plan to be there at the top of the hour to experience the Glockenspiel as the characters move about and the music plays. We took the elevator to the top to see great views of the city. It was a little hazy so the Alps,... More

Read my review, or anyone's, of Marienplatz and you get the main ideas here. Gorgeous, center of everything, and the Rathaus (town hall) is an amazing sight of intricate design. Don't like crowds? Stay away. Especially for the 3x/day Glockenspiel show. Shopping and eating all around.

Not many rat houses in Germany can boast this style of stunning architecture and it's definitely worth seeing and photographing, both by day light and at night.

Wow, this is quite a building. Located at the end of Marienplatz, this exceptionally architected building is probably the most amazing site to see in Munich. It also features the excellent clock and the clock show at set hours daily. The climb up top is pretty ordinary so I recommend going up at the nearby St. Peter's instead.

The glockenspiel has some extended "shows" which will draw large crowds minutes before the actual "show". Very near to Marienplatz station and you will not definitely miss this!

This is a beautiful example of architecture. The music box nature of the chimes is fascinating and when considering the age of this mechanical wonder, it's quite amazing.

The town hall is an amazing building, so ornate and beautifully maintained. The Glockenspiel is the centre piece, quite literally. The ancient animated display plays at 11, 12 and 5pm during summer. There is quite a bit of bell chiming going on before the figures move, so if you are squeezing through the inevitable crowds you can still make it... More
