The towers rise almost 100 meter into the sky with their “Welsch canopies” and can be seen far beyond the city limits, thus dominating its silhouette like hardly any other building. Since 2004 no buildings may be built any more that would top the towers.

This is where Munich’s history and present meet. “Neues Rathaus”, built in 1900 in neo-gothic style, dominates the place and is the scenery for everything celebrated in Munich. City festivals, Christkindlmarkt – and of course the championship celebrations of FC Bayern. The carillon at “Neues Rathaus” leads visitors back into the city’s history since 1158 several times a day. Mariensäule (Mary’s Column) in the center of the place or the Fischbrunnen (Fish fountain) on the corner of “Ludwig Beck” department store are popular venues for citizens of Munich and visitors in order not to miss each other in the lively city center.
