  • Breathtaking! Spectacular! Once I saw it I became speechless for like a min or so! Then I mistakenly entered the actual Rathaus! I lifted to the top level searching for viewpoint😂 Than I understood that it's not supposed for tourists because there were only personnel!) I'll never forget this little adventure of mine)
  • A must if in Munich. Beautiful inside building inside and out. In the winter, enjoy a gluwein at a bar across the Plaza while enjoying the view
  • Stunning building externally (we didn't go in). Be aware, if you came for the Glockenspiel, it only performs in the morning in winter (1700/5pm performance is only in summer). The Christmas Market is now finished for the year.
  • Breathtaking building. Visit at noon to see famous Rathaus-Glockenspiel show.
  • Beautiful structure, I can take a picture from anywhere and it looks great!
