One of the two towers, nearly 100 meters high, is accessible and provides stunning views over the area.
Since its creation the Marienplatz has been the center square of Munich and the core of the region. That was earlier in the days used by the markets and competitions. In addition to the huge New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) that occupies one side of Marienplatz, in the far end you can see the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) creating a wall. On the wide open square you can see the Mariensäule, a strong column to the Virgin Mary erected in 1638, and the Fischbrunnen, a modern fountain with bronze sculptures saved from an older fountain in the 19th century. Marienplatz is well known for its numerous galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafés. It is also the venue of the year round festivals.

The Arena was designed by architects Herzog & Meuron and is an architectural icon in the north of the city which, thanks to the guided tours on offer and the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt, attracts many visitors on match-free days.

The English Garden has been one of the most famous and cherished attractions in Munich since its establishment in 1792, with locals and tourists from all over the world alike. Karl Theodor followed the intent of developing military gardens for the soldiers in every Bavarian city to keep them occupied in peacetime.
5. PALACE DE NYMPHENBURG
The Nymphenburg Palace was built to commemorate the birth of the Bavarian heir to the throne, Max Emanuel. It soon became the sanctuary of the Bavarian kings with its splendid gardens and luxurious quarters, all of whom were born here or died there. Nymphenburg 's large baroque estate, in the city's northwest fringe, was originally the 17th-century summer home of the Wittelsbach Electors. Extending more than 600 meters from wing to wing, this large palace is flanked on all sides by the Nymphenburg River, which separates as it flows through the main buildings before reuniting again in a fountain-adorned pool in front of the main façade.

The iconic Hofbräuhaus dates back to the 16th century and brings a live brass band into the quintessential German beer hall experience.
