Beautiful buildings, sculptures, and I love that City Hall is called "rat house"...draw your own conclusions... there is an inside courtyard that is a cooler place to sit (in summer) and a restaurant there with, of course, outside seating. Off Marienplatz you will also find...More

Had to come to Marienplatz and see it. They had a gay pride festival while we were there. Lots of people and good flowing of beer.

This old town square is definitely worth a visit. We were there over Christmas time and there was a Christmas market that had been setup. There are very impressive old buildings, and there was a great vibe when we were there.
