19th-Century Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) is a spectacle of gothic
towers and open courtyards. This huge hall is located on the
Marienplatz in the city center.
The Rathaus's central tower houses a 43-bell clock which comprises
the famed Munich Glockenspiel. This clock comes to life every
day at 11am and 12pm (and 5pm March-October). If you're there
at one of these times, you will get to see the life-sized statues
dance to four different melodies much like a giant cuckoo clock.
The Neues Rathaus is open Monday-Friday 9am-4pm, Saturday-Sunday 10am-7pm
(May-October); Monday-Thursday 9am-4pm, Firdays 9am-1pm
(November-April). For more information call 089 238 05-195.
