  Munich's Rathaus and Mariensäule on Marienplatz
by Henkster

In the center of Marienplatz, the Mariensäule (St. Mary`s Column) attracts the eye. Elector Maximilian I endowed the city with this 11-metre marble column, crowned by a 2.25-metre golden statue of St. Mary. The column is particularly important since it is used as the central point of land surveying for the whole of Bavaria.
