The square in front of the town hall is named after the column of the Virgin Mary at its center: the Marienplatz. It is one of the most famous parts of Munich. It is here, where the Founding Festival as well as the Fasching celebrations and the popular Christmas market takes place.

The square is famed for its neo-Gothic Town Hall. The mechanical clock, or Glockenspiel, plays every day at 11.00, 12.00 and 17.00.
