  Neues Rathaus Carillon
by diageva

The "New" Town Hall is a incredible building at the most important square of Munich ... Marienplatz of about one century ... The facade its ... wonderful ... full of ....sculturs and gargoyles.
At the center of the it you can see a green part ... where you can see figures ... a carillon ... that works 3 times a day ... at 11, 12 and 17h ... a big clock with figures of natural sizes that represent a part of Munich history ... tens of tourists are concentrated there to see the carillon at the hours in which it works ... what I used to do was to look at the tourist faces .. its funny see how their faces smiles at any movements or clocks of the carillon.

A MUST DO ... is to get up the tower of the Town Hall for the magnificant view you have from there .... in clear days you can see the mountains (this tower have lift ... not as Peterkirche)
