Munich is packed with buildings that are beautiful inside and out. From the imposing neo-gothic architecture of the Neues Rathaus that dominates Marienplatz to the many pretty neo-classical churches, you’re spoiled for choice. We’ve whittled it down to the best of the bunch, so grab your camera, put on your comfy trainers and start exploring the city.

Neues Rathaus

The new town hall is at the very heart Marienplatz, and one of the most famous buildings in Munich as a result. Built in the late 1800s, it covers a staggering 9,159 m2 and has over 400 rooms. It was designed by Georg Hauberrisser who won a competition to design the city’s new town hall. Today it’s still a working office for the city council and mayor. Keep your eye on the time: one of its most famous features is the elaborate Glockenspiel cuckoo clock where a carousel of figures dance at 11AM, 12PM, and 5PM.

Museum Brandhorst

For many years the Munich art scene was dominated by the Pinakothek museums. Though it’s still part of the same art museum family, Museum Brandhorst has a distinctly different look and feel. The building is covered in 36,000 tubes glazed in 23 different colours giving it a tactile look that’s almost fabric-like from far away. Inside you’ll find an equally modern space with wide open galleries and vast white walls. Permanent exhibitions include works by modern art icons such as Damien Hirst, Joseph Beuys, and Andy Warhol, including his “Marilyn” portrait.
Theresienstraße 35a, 80333 München, Germany.
