Owner description: This prominent public square, the largest in Munich, still stands as the center of social activity in the city, much as it has throughout history.

Definitely a must-see just for the buildings, even if you stand outside and look at them. There is also plenty to eat in the area. Great place to get pictures of yourself and your family.

We were there 13-14 July and there was this HUGE Gay parade. I was such fun seeing a lot of people, in customes, beer at hand, celebrating.

You can't go to Munich and miss the glockenspeil. So the Marienplatz is the place to sit and enjoy a coffee and strudel while you are waiting.

tons of restaurants, bars, clothing stores and the like. Seems like the place goes on forever. We ended up visiting a few times but on the second day we were there we found ourselves in the middle of what must be the largest gay parade on the planet! I have to say it was pretty entertaining but basically shut down the Marienplatz for the entire day and impossible to move around or get access to some of points of interest there. Not sure if this is an annual event at the same time each year but something you might consider if traveling there in July.

This central square in Munich was very crowded with tourists, but for good reason: to see the amazing historic architecture, the glockenspiel, the sunshine. It was great. I liked it so much, I visited several times during my trip. It is worth seeing both during the day and at night.
