This is the center of Munich, with the city's best-known places to go. Surrounded by a ring of streets, it contains the city's most famous churches, beer halls, the Rathaus (City Hall), and museums. It's a perfect place to just stroll about.

The heart of old Munich is the Marienplatz. Here is the Rathaus, with its famed Glockenspiel. This intricate mechanical marvel has a remarkable hourly display that is not to be missed.
