Favorite thing: Marienplatz--great shops, entertainment.
Fondest memory: This at Fasching in Munich was jam packed but fun. Years ago was in the Munich marathon. Much to do and see. Also, flying into Munich airport is now a breeze and much easier than Frankfurt

Favorite thing: Two main things to see in Munich are, of course, Marienplatz and Frauenkirche. On most postcards you find either Dom or Townhalls ('old' and 'new'), the only exception I can admit is Octoberfest, but it is a season thing, and mostly a cultural event, not the city sightseeing. This is a photo of Marienplatz.
Fondest memory: Marienplatz is a magneto - all tourist roads lead to this square.

Favorite thing: Take a stroll down the Marienplatz.
Fondest memory: As much of a tourist trap as it seems, we enjoyed watching the clock tower when it struck the hour. I'm not sure I can explain it, but this is a 10-minute event. The clock chimes a song while life-sized figures spin around in the center of the tower. I've heard that someone had the opportunity to actually ride on one of the mechanical horses, just like a merry-go-round, but that could have been a rumor.
To be honest, I don't even know the name of this building. I want to say it was the Glockenschpiel -- I know that must be misspelled (someone please tell me the real spelling). But I can't be sure what it was called. I just know it was a great site to see. The picture is of the back of the tower.
Buskers of all styles
Favorite thing: I enjoyed listening to the Khukh Mongol Musicians - it does seem that there are so many interesting street musicians of all styles performing.
Favorite thing: Go to Marienplatz. Seen here is a detail from the famous Neues Rathaus. Check out the travelogue for more.
The heart of Munich
Favorite thing: This is Munich's central square, the Marienplatz with the Neo-Gothic Town Hall around 1900.
It still looks the same today, except for the railroad tracks running through it.
A facade to entice you inside
Fondest memory: Enjoying another bier while gazing at the beauty of this kirche as passer's-by entertain the people-watching crowds in Marienplatz.

Fondest memory: My favorite memory of munich was at Christmas time. Visiting Marienplatz at night with the Christmas market all set up. Music playing and the smell of hot cinnimon nuts everywhere
