Owner description: This prominent public square, the largest in Munich, still stands as the center of social activity in the city, much as it has throughout history.

The Marienplatz is marvelous with the old and the new Rathaus, the Glockenspiel. You can even sit and take in the whole atmosphere. We sat outside in February and had an expresso coffee.

The great thing about Marienplatz is that it is literally the hub for the historic downtown of Munich. From here, you can see nearly everything the city has to offer, and there are things to suit the tastes of all. The architecture is great, there are many different types of restaurants and cafes, along with souvenir and designer shopping within easy walking distance. Not to be missed on a trip to Munich

If you are visiting Munich, you should not miss Marienplatz. It's such a lovely area where you can people watch all day. The Rathaus-Glockenspiel is the main attraction in the square. The building itself is quite a site. If you were not here, you weren't in Munich.

This is a beautiful square in all seasons. It is a must for tourists.
I use it as a base to start from and return to. It is central therfore handy for me to shop and visit museums and markets, my grown children to visit designer shops, trendy bars and such, bavaran pubs for the men and places to grab a horse sausage or two before meeting again and choosing a restaurant for lunch or dinner. Attractions for tourists such as the hofbrauhaus, hard rock cafe and football trinket shops are all within easy reach. Everyone can do there own thing and meet back at the square. Everyone knows where it is, so you can't get lost. Tourist information centre in the building under the clock.
Well worth a visit for the Christmas markets. Very entertaining with acts from buskars.
