Surprisingly, the Old Town Hall looks newer than the nearby New Town Hall. They are both in Marienplatz. It has a tower, which is possible to climb to the top for a great view of the city.

One of the interesting historical buildings to see at Marienplatz is Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) which is situated on the eastern end of the public square. Like many buildings in this area of the Old Town, it is worth spending a few minutes to...More

Although the New Town Hall and its Gothic style look much older than the Old Town Hall, it is actually several centuries younger. The less stunning looking Old Town Hall was built closer to the 1400s and, of course, renovated over the years. It is...More

Clocks, a view, Germans. What could be more glorious? more predictable? and more fun? A beer, a wurst, and a conversation can be found around Old Town Hall.

The old town hall is just across the Marienplatz. Interestingly, when you compare this Old Town Hall and the Neu Rathaus, the former looks much newer.

It's in the heart of the town, Marienplatz. The underground takes you there. There is nothing more meaningful in a city's administration than a city hall, and an old town hall deserves a visit.

Not sure there is alot to do here other than walk through the arch and take pics in front of the clock tower. Surrounded by eating spots and loads of shopping. Mairenplatz and New Town Hall are a 2 minute walk.
