Munich has many fine buildings, especially around Karlsplatz and Marienplatz. Its best to walk down from Karlsplatz. The Neues Rathaus dominates the centre of Marienplatz.

Take a look at a web cam pointing to this square: Marienplatz
NEUES RATHAUS (New City Hall) - Built between 1867 - 1909 in Flanders Gothic style with a facade from over 300 feet in length, featuring strikingly elaborate stone ornamentation.
It's a clock with minitures which move at appointed times (10:30 in the winter). Whenever it runs everyone stops to watch it. It's really interesting, and a must see when coming to Munich.
The 32 figures on the musical clock (Glockenspiel) atop the Neues Rathaus reenact the marriage of Duke Wilhelm V.
Glockenspiel (The large clock with figures moving around).
Largest carillon in Germany, with near-lifesize figures performing the traditional Coopers' Dance and a jousting match.
There are a lot of attractions and shops in the city centre of Munich. The Glockenspiel (clockwork) in the town-hall tower is quite special and probably worth seeing.
After you watch the Glockenspiel, take the elevator to the top of the Neue Rathaus (the town hall-- the building with the Glockenspiel) for a spectacular view of Munich!
