The Marienplatz is the center of the city and somehow still, although constantly overcrowded, the good room - at the latest when FC Bayern celebrates the annual championship, which is noticeable. The tourists are mainly attracted by the carillon in the tower of the neo-gothic "New Town Hall", which, for example, is admired at 12 o'clock. The golden "Patrona Bavariae" on her Marian column is probably overlooked there, as much as she shines in the sun. The Munich meanwhile meet by the fish fountain on the eastern edge of the square.

The Marienplatz is located in the old town at the crossroads of the two main axes, the east-west axis between Isartor and Karlstor, which was part of the salt road from Salzburg or Reichenhall on Landsberg am Lech to Switzerland, and the south-north axis between Sendlinger Gate and the 19th century canceled Schwabinger Tor. In the north it is bounded by the New Town Hall, to the east by the Old Town Hall, the south and west side are department stores and other commercial buildings, often with catering. It is a good 100 meters long and about 50 meters wide.

The Marienplatz is one of the biggest crowd pullers in Munich. It is therefore not surprising that masses of visitors from all over the world arrive and stop there every day. If you want to be spared the "Erdrücktwerden" halfway, then a visit to the Marienplatz in the early morning hours is recommended.

The Marienplatz can be used as a starting point for numerous detours. If you go from there towards Odeonsplatz, from there turn left into Briennerstrasse, after a few meters you will find yourself on Wittelsbacher Platz, where the historic Christmas market is located. In my opinion, one of the most interesting. There are historically dressed figures, such as jugglers, knights, castaways, beggars, nobles. The stalls are also historic, as are the people who exhibit, serve and sell there.
Well worth a visit😉
