Fountain Tourist Spot
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.
