No doubt, the Marienplatz (square) in the heart of the city is one of the most famous sights in Munich and the surrounding areas. Quite a lot of tourists wait in front of the new town hall until they hear the chimes at 11 am and noon. The town hall has been enlarged until 1909 in neo-Gothic style. The Münchner Kindl (Munich child statue) is located on the top of the tower. You will enjoy a beautiful view over Munich on the observation deck above the glockenspiel, which you can reach by lift. You catch the best views after 91 meters in the Alter Peter (church tower), a more beautiful sight that justifies the effort of 306 steps.
