Marienplatz Reviews & Ratings
Two great things to do. First be there at either 11am or noon daily for the clock performance. Next pay or use your Munich city pass to go up the church tower, great city view and able to take pictures of all the churches on the top.
Marienplatz is very beautiful and super chaotic. There are many nice restaurants and breweries around. I can feel only good vibes. Loved it 😊
The centre of Munich, a Gothic historical building. It is very impressive from the history and the art. Around the Marienplatz, there are shopping malls, plenty of restaurants and things to do. Just come here if you don't know what to do, then you will know :)
Such a beautiful square in the center of Munich. Plenty of shops and places to eat go choose from and lots of exploring to do. Make sure to be at the square at 11am, 12pm or 1700 to see the glockenspiel.
There was a beer garden setup when I visited. Lots of space, lots of people. Good location for plenty of things to do in the city and right next to some beautiful buildings.
