Even now this is a popular shopping destination with hoardes of boutiques and stores, complete with restaurants and pubs to satiate the hungry shopaholics! The true heart of Munich, this is a lively place with street performers, from mimes to musicians. During Christmas, the square is host to the Christkindlmarkt, a must visit flea if you are visiting during festival season. The magnificent neo-gothic Neue Rathaus (New Town Hall), dominates the norther stretch of the square, while the majestic Alter Rathaus (Old Town Hall) is towards the east. A visit to this square is a must for a true Bavarian feel.
