Munich’s Neues Rathaus (Munich Town Hall) is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the city. Its cathedral-like tower looms large over Marienplatz, the city’s main square.

The crowning glory of the Neues Rathaus is its world-famous “glockenspiel”, the fourth largest in Europe. Each day at 11 am, noon, and 5 pm, thirty-two near life-size figures give a performance for the crowds that gather at Marienplatz to watch.

Spectators can view two presentations: a reenactment of the 1568 wedding of Duke William V and Renata of Lorraine, complete with a jousting match followed by a rendition of a dance called the Schäfferltanz, first performed to mark the end of the plague in 1517. At night, visitors will see a night watchman blowing his horn and the guardian angel of Munich bestowing a blessing on the city.
