1908. Time your visit to take in one of the daily performances of the historic Rathaus Glockenspiel located on the face of the 85 meter high clock tower. When you explore Neues Rathaus, be sure to ride the clock tower elevator to the ninth floor for an unforgettable view of Munich, and remember to try the traditional Bavarian food at the Ratskeller restaurant located in the basement.

Make sure to stop by at either 11,12, or 5 o'clock to capture the Glockenspiel dance and chime away.

The main attraction of the New Townhall at Marienplatz is the 15 minute Glockenspiel show at 11am, noon and 5pm. It's also where you'll find the Tourist Information.

The new town hall of Munich is an ornate neo-gothic masterpiece. It is most famous for its tower & glockenspiel which plays at 11, 12, 5 o'clock.

I was lucky enough to be in Marienplatz one morning when the extremely elaborate cuckoo clock went off. The clock literally has jousting knights and dancing characters that play out a three act performance.

The New Town Hall tower contains the famous Munich Carillon (Glockenspiel). The square below gets very busy with crowds that flock to see the display as the clock strikes at 11am, 12 noon and 5pm. Be sure to take a set of binoculars, or get there early and secure a seat in the upstairs coffee house of the store opposite.

Glockenspiel for me is synonymous with this building in the heart of Munich. It does its little spiel for tourists and locals a couple of times a day. I do know it's not regular (like on an hourly basis). Every day at 11am and some extra times in the summer. Still it's a nice family activity that gain some smiles.

Das Neue Rathaus in Muenchen liegt am Marienplatz und ist ein wunderschoenes Gebaeude. Besucher koennen den ca 50m hohen Turm besichhtigen, von welchem man einen herrlichen Blick ueber ganz Muenchen und die wunderschoenen Alpen hat. Das Rathaus hat das beruehmte Glockenspiel mit 43 Glocken, welches taeglich um 11:00, 12:00 und 17:00 Uhr spielt.

Das neogotische Neue Rathaus ist das Schmuckstück des Marienplatzes. Für nur 2,50 Euro kann man die Aussichtsgalerie im Rathausturm besichtigen - und es gibt sogar einen Aufzug! Ich persönlich bevorzuge den Ausblick vom Alten Peter, aber der Rathausturm ist eine gute Alternative für alle. die nicht so gut zu Fuß unterwegs sind.

Darüber hinaus lohnt sich auf jeden Fall ein Blick in den Innenhof des Neuen Rathauses und ein kleiner Spaziergang durch das wunderschöne Gewölbe des Ratskellers.
