The New City Hall sits on Marien Platz across from the statue of the Virgin Mary and is an impressive neo-Gothic building built starting in 1867. It has the famous Glockenspiel mechanical clock that performs during the day.

Munich has a lot of good and bad things. The good things are the old buildings, of which this is a prime example, while the bad things are the multitude of drunks, beggars, shady characters and buildings with ugly architecture. So when I found this building I sat and looked at for awhile. It's so beautiful and full of wonderful... More

Plaza is very beautiful, but Rathaus itself, nothing special. 150 years old, better visit Old Rathaus, not far away.

It's good to have a lot of photos with friends here. And I went to the top of st. Peter church to watch the show at 5pm. It was amazing.

We were a bit disapointed with the Glockenspiel. The music started about 4 minutes before the hour with the movements starting right on the hours. There are two levels, and each level does it's own "performance" first the top level, then the lower level. But is wasn't as animated as we expected. But still a must do. Runs at 11,... More

There are so many things to do around this old marvelous gothic building. There are restaurants right across and tables and chairs are available for spectators to watch the musical glockenspiel. There are shops now on the ground level. The most interesting thing is the fish fountain where people kept their fish for fridays😊
