The neo-gothic magnificent building of the New Town Hall architecturally dominates the north side of Marienplatz and is the seat of the Lord Mayor. Its tower offers a great view and houses the famous Glockenspiel, which is a real spectator magnet.What many do not know: The New Town Hall on Marienplatz is not as old as it looks. It was completed in 1905. At the turn of the century, Neo-Gothic was a popular architectural style; the Paulskirche at Theresienwiese was built in the same period by the same architect: Georg von Hauberrisser, who at the age of 25 submitted his design for the New Town Hall.More than 600 city officials work in the 400 rooms of the building, which can not only be viewed from the outside. Many historic rooms are open to the public, and the mayor's office may also be visited - but only on the open day.All year round, on the other hand, you are entitled to a small entrance fee to the town hall tower, which offers excellent views over the old town. In contrast to the tower of the Old Peters you do not have to climb stairs for it. A lift leads up to the viewing platform of the 85 meter high tower, on top of which the Münchner Kindl watches over the city.Tower driveway - all year round:
