Visit on the hour for the chimes and display!

Great spot for seeing a historical display of the celebration of time...You have to be there at the top of the hour, in daylight! Oh, the rest of it is lovely too!

The clock performance is fun to see (and its fun to watch everyone watching it as well!). Take the elevator up the tower for a great view of downtown Munich!

The glockenspiel is fun to watch...get there to see it. However, the most important feature of this building is the beautiful architecture!!! You can't help but get amazing photos. Pay attention to the details, you will see things that may surprise you!

At the time of visiting there was a lovely floral exhibit just inside the new town hall. The building itself is beautiful both inside and out, and houses a tourist information centre out front.

Gorgeous from all angles, and home to the famous Ratskeller restaurants, but the highlight is the 12 noon glockenspiel shown, when for almost 15 minutes the joyous sound of bells accompanies 2 separate layers of glockenspiel figures doing everything frim marching past their king and queen, to jousting, to doing a court dance. AMAZING

Make sure you walk all the way around it. 2 sides are really ornate. There is always something going on in the rear of the building to enjoy. The facades are fantastic with so much detail.

In addition to the delightful Noon bells and clock performance, this town center is loaded with travelers and street performers that are unpredictable. We enjoyed two live performances...one by a mime dressed as a statue, but who skillfully engaged with the crowd while posing, alone and with guests, for pictures. Not just a statue. In addition, two young men played... More

New Town Hall was built between 1867 and 1908. I find it pretty interesting example of a Gothic Revival architecture style. If you like architecture you will be more than happy.

Neus Rathaus, or the new town hall is a lovely and beautiful place to be in the city center of Munich. When you are here, you will be exposed and immersed in the heritage and old buildings, churches and landmarks. This place is always packed with visitors and one could really feel the vibrancy, excitement and bustling of activities here.... More
