So many stalls selling delicious bratwurst, gluhwein and beautiful christmas decoration. Pity it lack a bit of atmosphere, no Christmas carols at all.
I love Marienplatz and visited when the Christmas markets were there. So much fun! The shopping, restaurants and historical places keep you busy all day! If you visit Munich, you have to visit.
The day I was there, it was cold and overcast, not great for photographing this magnificent structure. I did go back over a couple nights and enjoyed sipping hot chocolate and eating delicious pastries while taking in the architecture and sculptures that adorn the building. It is worth catching the tram to Marienplatz and then taking in the surrounding sights.... More
Marienplatz is very crowded at Christmas period.Visit the streets around Marienplatz and Virtualmrkt which has many coffee shops
Munich in November and December appears to be "one big" Christmas Market with Marienplatz at its hub. There are lots of interesting museums, churches and stores to visit, not to mention the rows of stalls selling Glühwein and Christmassy goods. Well worth visiting.
Visited at the start of Winter and were lucky enough to catch the christmas markets here. Brilliant fun. Loads of people drinking mulled wine. Heaps of delicious food for sale. Great festive spirit. The markets extend in a big cross out from Marienplatz. So its the centre literally of the town and the markets!
If you go to Munich, or Muenchen as they call it, you have to go to this square. If it is a clear day, it is worth it to pay, and go up the elevator of the old church to see a panoramic view of Munich.
It's a lively place. First thing you notice when you step out of the tube station is the impressive Neus Rathaus. It looks so grand and imposing. Once it settles in, you begin to notice the life around the 'town square'. Street musicians, magicians, street vendors, big brands. It is really the heart of Munich city.
