“Must See”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

If you go to Munich, you are almost guaranteed to be directed to Marienplatz (emphasis on the E, not the AR, sounds like Maureenplatz). Some of my local friends told me about a cafe that has a great brunch and is right across the square from the Glockenspiel. Apparently it's almost impossible to find, but worth the search.

“Nice in Nov/Dec when xmas markets are on..”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Wonderful old world buildings, and turning Glockenspiel. Watch your valuables and pockets when the Glockenspiel is performing, especially at Xmas time when it is extra busy.

“Great public square in Europe”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We had been travelling around Europe for a few months, when we came to Munich. This was one of my favorite public squares that I have seen in Europe. Not overly crowded and with the great performance from the Glockenspiel, it made for some great photo opportunities!

“Meeting place”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Marienplatz is the meeting place for Munich visitors. You'll propably pass-by many times. Check the schedule for the little dancing at 11:00 and 12:00 at the clock.
