The plaza and the clock is awesome. Would have loved to do a tour of behind the scene of the clock, but alas, did not.

Marienplatz is a nice central spot in Munich. We watched the glockenspiel, watched a rally and ate dinner there. Lots happening there on a Sunday.

Lively square with cool old buildings and history and lively street performers and people watching. Download the Rick Steves app and he has a audioguide for Munich so you can learn more about the sites you are walking around.
