Marienplatz is beautiful, but being there for Christmas was even more so. There was a large tree and the markets were AMAZING. Trinkets, food and mulled wine galore. You have to see Munich at Christmas!

Lots of great things to see. Glockenspiel plays at 11 and 12 with a theme from a royal wedding between someone from Bavaria and france. Great fun. Lots of shops. Take the elevator to the tower for a great view.

I have visited Marionplatz in summer and it's beautiful. In February it's a little more solemn, no beautiful, colorful flowers all over. I was there in late afternoon so that the glorious glokenspiel in the sqaure does not play at 5pm in winter. I was...More

The clock and the automaton that turns is the centre is awesome. Came at 10am and it didn't do it then but it did at 11am so not sure when it does it. Great architecture.
