    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.

    Khukh Mongols

    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.

    Marienplatz around 1900

    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.
