  • Beautiful place and very busy at this time of Christmas. The statue stands on top of a tower in the middle of the square. Around has many stalls with typical foods and things of Christmas.

  • On top of the tall column of red marble, the statue of the Madonna with the Christ child. The Madonna holds the scepter in hand, standing on top of a Crescent Moon. At the base of the Madonna there are four putti in the Act of fighting the war, heresy, hunger and plague. Visitors to the central square of Marienplatz cannot fail to see this great column with our Lady.

  • This statute is a great meeting point because you can't miss it. It's right in front of the glockenspiel and the new town hall.

  • Golden Mother Mary. When the swedes were about the attack the city, the Duke fled to Austria and prayed to mother Mary to protect the city. The citizens ended up paying the swedes with money and beer. The Duke then returned and had this monument built.
  • after visiting the german museum .just walk by the river and you will find the mariensaeule..its a nice monument
  • Beautiful square. Will go back. Glockenspiel is worth seeing once. But only once. Christmas markets here are nice.
  • Go in the morning and check this out. In the afternoon, that area gets really crowded.
  • I adore this place,"so beautiful at Christmas time.
