This Gothic town hall is the centerpiece of the Marienplatz. Its 300+ foot tall facade has a large number of ornate sculptures while the clock tower (glockenspiel) has a set of knights that stage a duel twice during the day that attracts crowds of tourists. It is definitely worth the time to wait and watch. This is a "must see"... More

We liked it a lot especially in the evening time during the christmas time. There were very beautiful music and light show all evening long. Very crowded though.

Great place to visit just off Marienplatz. It's an impressive building, and you must visit the inside courtyard, it has an amazing gothic architectural feel.

We went right to the top in the elevator for a few euros each and got great right across the city. It was ridiculously cold but well worth it! You get in the elevator at the bottom in the courtyard then pay when you get off a few floors up before you then get in another elevator that takes you... More

We managed to see the marionettes moving on Sunday morning at 11am. A local told us though that on other days, they only move at 9,12,3,6. Worth seeing!

What a treat visiting the beautiful city of Munich made so much more interesting by our guide Hildren who walked us to The New Town Hall just in time to see the spectacular clock strike 11am and watch the marionettes tell their story. Wrap up warm though or have a glass of something warm to drink during this fabulous site.

Can't miss this one since it's in Marienplatz the main plaza. Go up the lookout tower for a great view of Munich. Did this as the sun was setting during Christmas markets. The city squares were beautifully lit up with holiday lights. Only disappointment was that the glockenspiel was not working.
