    Impressive building
    The most striking building on Marienplatz was completed in 1905. It was built in the Neo-Gothic architectural style. The tower offers panoramic views of the city. Furthermore, the famous glockenspiel attracts huge crowds every day. Over 600 city employees work in the 400 rooms of the building, which can be viewed not only from the outside. The balcony is Munich's most popular place for sports teams to celebrate their wins. FC Bayern has been a regular guest in recent years, turning Marienplatz into a giant party zone. The carillon is powered by solar energy. With its 43 bells, is the fifth largest in Europe. In total, all the bells weigh about seven tons.

    Reminded me of Prague
    Incredibly impressive 19th building which is also the location of the main Tourist Information Centre and from where which you can also join one f the many 'free' walking tours (I say 'free' just in case nobody has done one before - but you aren't charged in advance, but are meant to pay what you can at the end based on budget and/or satisfaction with the guide) . Weird how all these 'Gothic' buildings sprang up across Europe during a similar time period, took a long time to construct and none of them used the same architects, masons etc. The reason it reminded me of Prague's Astronomical Clock, is the Rathaus Glockenspiel, which is a similar revolving set of figurines enacting something on the stroke of the hour - in this case as 11.00, 12.00 and 17.00. Having seen the 11.00, we joined a Spanish walking tour which began in front of the Town Hall at 11.30, only to wait 20mins in the freezing cold to see it again, so we bailed... There is also the possibility to go up to the top in a lift which is meant to offer spectacular views of Munich but, being Christmas and the crowds we didn't want to wait around in a queue in the cold to do so, but I have heard it is very worthwhile if you have the weather/patience to get in said lift.
