An absolute must for any city break to Munich is the Marienplatz in the pedestrian zone. The Glockenspiel with its 43 chimes offers a spectacle for tourists from around the world every day at 11 o’clock and noon, and at 5 o’clock during the summer months. It is housed in the façade of the new town hall. At Christmas time you can visit the Christmas market here.
With 500,000 visitors every year, this ranks as the third most significant sight in Bavaria. The Zugspitze is 2,962 metres, making it Germany’s highest mountain. Visitors can choose from three cable cars to reach the peak quickly and comfortably and enjoy the view.
