We were able to observe the Glockenspiel at the New Rathous in action on two separate occasions - a magnificent sight accompanied by melodious chimes and bells. The pillar with the golden statue of the Virgin Mary in the center of plaza was brilliant despite the overcast weather. The Christmas tree in front of the Rathaus was massive and decorated with hundreds of sparkling lights. Within the plaza and surrounding streets there were at least 200 booths selling every imaginable Christmas item, food booths, Gluhwein stations, as well as numerous gift options. Two S-bahn entrances (one in each corner) made it convenient to access from our hotel. The Frauenkirche, within two blocks of the plaza, is a massive Gothic structure that is beautiful to behold even though one of the towers is currently undergoing maintenance.

Great shopping area with a huge christmas market running through the Main Street, all the normal high street shops and a big dept store with a food hall on the lower floor.

We were advised that it was the place to visit Christmas stalls but found the stalls to be repetitive and highly overcrowded. Enjoyed the bio worst stall, gluhwein and chestnuts but preferred some of the less crowded stalls. However, the stalls around the Rathuis on an evening were highly festive. Recommended but be prepared for crowds

A very beautiful and stunning place with museums, churches and shopping centers with a large walkway & no cars. It is full of street performers. Also the famous Hofbräuhaus Bar is few steps away. It took me 2 days to see and experience the entire place. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful smells, food, drinks, atmosphere and Christmas lights - exactly what you'd expect when coming for the Munchen Christmasmartkt!
