Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus), a late Gothic building constructed between 1470 and 1480, has been a canvas for various architectural styles as it was remodeled over the centuries. After it was damaged in World War II, the structure was finally restored to its original Gothic style. Be sure to look up in the ballroom to see the ornate wooden ceiling. Also look for the copies of the famous Morris Dancers and sculptures of Erasmus Grasser. A toy museum with history toys and games is tucked into the building, too.

  • Spectacular and decorative building in the Marienplatzon. which few people thought that was the predecessor of the neighbouring Rathaus. Currently, Toy Museum, makes this worth-child.

  • The Marienplatz with the old (not the former) City Hall in Munich still remains the center of the city and is certainly worth the visit. Anyway it will be difficult to avoid it since all roads lead there and that the metro station below. So go for it! The City Hall and its carillon are worth it. Restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity are also worth.

  • The building of the old Munich Town Hall is located adjacent to the current City Hall, at Marienplatz. If the new town hall is an imposing building, the former exudes charm on all 4 sides, especially for its Tower, which now houses the Museum of the toy and swear that it is one of the most high in the city. It is impossible to be in Munich and not visited this corner, probably the most beautiful and representative of the city thanks to a large extent is this magnificent building of the XIV century
