  • Thanks to the guided tour of Sandemans we heard many this included stories. It is this magnificent building is the new town hall, while the old (destroyed in the war) was rebuilt and has a much more youthful appearance. The chimes of the Tower operates at 11 and 17 hours. Don't miss it and take good site, which is filled.

  • 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!
