The Town Hall is the seat of the mayor’s office. Its ornate façade is dominated by the famous Glockenspiel, dating back to 1908. Each day, its 32 mechanically moved figures re-enact Munich’s history in a 12-minute ‘show’, a very popular sight. Glockenspiel performance daily 11am, noon, 5pm (not 5pm Nov-Feb).
