Nice view and a lot of people. At the near stores you can find whatever you need. Everything was clean and I was impressed how clean that was.

Most of the time Marienplatz is crowded with tourist from all the corner of the Earth, ready to invade countless cafes and restaurants, shopping centers and plenty attractions of all kind. Don’t forget to sip a famous Munich beer, that is a must.
