Fischbrunnen, Munich

(4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Fischbrunnen, one of Munich's most iconic city landmarks, anchors the central Marienplatz square. The stone fountain features a large fish sculpture with several young fisherman, representing the square's historic importance as a former fish market. Have a coffee sitting on the fountain's edge so you can take in the buzzing atmosphere of the plaza and admire the impressive Town Hall building. Toss a coin into the fountain's blue water and make a wish before leaving. Use our Munich tourist route planner to arrange your visit to Fischbrunnen and other attractions in Munich.

  • Fountain off to the side of Marienplatz. I noticed it because it was still working in the freezing cold. Not much artistic merit.  more »
  • Front of the fountain, you can see all kinds of people. Most are waiting for anyone. Fountain to cool off during the summer is used, wash on Ash Wednesday to the purse. And the lads go swimming in it. And all very central.

  • Tourists visiting the square fountain are on the edge of Marienplatz square in fine enough, but seems too unaware this fountain presence. Most tourists are looking up at the top of the clock, City Hall, the eye does not go to those on the ground.
