This square has been the heart of the city since 1158 when it was used for markets and even tournaments. Marienplatz is dominated by the Neues Rathaus, which covers 9,159 m² (3.5 sq mi) and has over 400 rooms. It was designed by Georg Hauberrisser, who won a competition to design the city’s new town hall. One of its most famous features is the elaborate Glockenspiel cuckoo clock with a carousel of figures dancing at 11 am, noon, and 5 pm.
The edge of the Englischer Garten opposite Bruderstrasse is home to one of München’s favorite and most unlikely pastimes – surfing.
The famous Hofbräuhaus dates back to the 16th century and offers the quintessential German beer hall experience complete with a live brass band.
St Peter’s Church
A famous München landmark, St Peter’s Church (Peterskirche) towers above the city on a hill between Rindermarkt and Marienplatz, making it the perfect spot for an incredible view. From 56 meters (183.7 feet) up, look right down onto the rooftops of Aldstadt and Frauenkirche, the symbol of München.
The Allianz Arena
The Allianz Arena replaced München’s old Olympiastadion. First plans for a new stadium were made in 1997, and even though the city of Munich initially preferred reconstructing the Olympiastadion, they eventually went ahead with the clubs’ proposal for an entirely new stadium.
Construction of the Allianz Arena started in October 2002, with a total investment in the project of €340 million.
