“Too commercial.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

Nice place, wonderful old buildings. As its a meeting place for locals its way too crowded , too commercial. Many expensive cafes and bier houses best avoided as the quality sucks.

It gives you a peaceful feeling when you stand in the middle of Munchen and have a ice cream...

“central to many things”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

See the new and old city hall, check out the Frauenkirche, the Rindermarkt/Viktualienmarkt-the Glockenspiel at 11, 12 and 5pm., just to mention a few things. Great spot to use as a central meeting point should you get separated for each other.
I love it.

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

This is the main and most famous square in Munich. It is not huge and may not necessarily be the best of all the squares in Munich but is definitely a place to see. The square is very busy with tons of tourists, locals and entertainers/street performers. It is surrounded by beautiful buildings and the architecture is stunning. It was a bit hard to walk around freely and we could not get close to the fountain to even look at it but still managed to get really nice pictures.
