Munich City Information

Detailed Munich City information depends on what you are seeking. This guide tries to provide a general overall view of the city and what is available to the visitor.

Munich Glockenspiel

Munich has many attractions for the visitor, like the world famous “Glockenspiel” in the Town Hall on Marienplatz. 11.00am,12.00 and 5.00pm are the times to see the full dance routine. This can get very busy during the main tourist season, but well worth it.


Close to Marienplatz is the Munich Viktualienmarkt, where some of the best fresh produce from Europe and around the world is on sale. Munich sightseeing is easy done by using public transport, or take the sightseeing buses, which start outside the main railway station, the Hauptbahnhof. There are walking tours, cycle tours, to satisfy every need.

Guide to the Guide

There is a lot of information about Munich on the Internet and you could spend days looking for information. If you like facts and figures without any marketing angle, I do suggest the Wikitravel Travel link in the menu bar.
