  • It is the central ornament of the city's main square but you still find me a statue on a column. In conclusion, nothing exceptional.

  • This stunning golden statue is almost lost within Marienplatz to the Town Hall, but perhaps that is why it was such a delight to find.  more »
  • The location is fine and mandatory for those visiting bacan Munich. This statue in background high is right in the center of the square and it's beautiful, but hard to see up close. I believe that should be cleaned from time to time. Use the zoom and good photos. Is the column of Maria-religious slant.

  • Lovely place. I would recommend it to anyone. 😊😉 Posto fantastico. Lo raccomanderei a chiunque. 😊😉
  • If you visit in the evening, it's lit up by sunset or surrounding building lighting and has a beautiful glow.
  • Really nicely made and decorated. Adds up to the monumental ambient of the Marienplatz.
  • 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

The St. Paul district is the site of Munich's yearly Oktoberfest and offers easy access to the city center. You may be able to find accommodation deals in the Am Schlachthof district, which is populated with small businesses and artists. Glockenbachviertel is the center of the city's nightlife with bars, clubs, and restaurants lining the streets. In contrast, Am alten Südfriedhof is a quiet residential district.
