“beautiful old town square”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

Looks just like the pictures - only better. We were there during the Christmas markets and the festive atmosphere only highlighted the architechture. The Glockenspeil, the churches.... what more can you say?

The Marienplatz was one of the most enjoyable places in Munich. there were so many beautiful stores and only a few minutes away from Viktualienmarkt. Not to be missed when you visit Munich..

“Nice Christkindlmarkt during Advent”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

But the one at the Residenz is better. Nevertheless, Marienplatz is pretty, around many shops and worth a visit.

“If in Munich , you have to go there”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

This is the most lively area of Munich ! It is easily accessible by public transportation and you will know very rapidly when you hae reached it 1 It is not a place to visit ,mit is a place to be . There a restaurants , shopping centers , boutiques , souvenir shops , bars , churches but mostly PEOPLE . Thousands of people ! It is lively and the only moment it gets quieter is when everyone is staring at the clock (on the hour flat)

“Nice Christmas Market”
Reviewed 8 December 2012 via mobile

We did a day trip from Fürth to visit the Christmas Market at Marienplatz. This was one of the better Christmas Market we have visited during our trip. The setting was lovely, especially since it was set-up in front of the Rathus. There are some other interesting places to visit in the vincinity as well, which we have visited some years back. These include the Frauenkirche and Viktualienmarkt.
