Germany Things to Do: 1,233 reviews and 1,985 photos
Marienplatz is the heart of the city of Munich and the New City Hall is the center of the platrz. The New City Hall was built during the last 15 or so years of the 19th century but appears to be much older. At 11:00, 12:00 and 15:00 PM each day the famous Glockenspiel figures perform. The Old Town Hall is still on the Platz as well as the Mariensäule, a large column at the center of the square also known as the column of St. Mary. Near the Old Town Hall is a small fountain known as the Fischbrunnen or Fish Fountain.
During our first vist to the Marienplatz several years ago the squre was filled with street entertainers, but this last time it was a rain out.
There are many shops and other attractions on the Platz.
Directions: Subway Marienplatz (U3,U6, S1,S2,S4-8)
