  • In the heart of Munich, near the famous Rathauza worth column, which can rightly be called the "Holy of Holies". Munich's central square that bears the name of the Virgin Mary, is a large column. It was built in the year 1638 in honor of the Swedish invasion. The column is crowned by a gilded statue of the Virgin Mary, created earlier, in the year 1590, the sculptor Gerhard Hilbert. And at the corners of the pedestal are four statues symbolizing the overcoming of town wars, epidemics, hunger and heresy.

  • This is a beautiful column located within an already beautiful square. You simply cannot miss it, but do take care of your belongings while visiting the square as pic-pocketing is an issue. 
  • A really nice statue of Virgin Mary on a half moon. The symbol of Munich at the heart of the city. Just in front of the new city 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.
