Marienplatz is the heart of the city of Munich. In the Middle Ages, the square used to be a market place as well as the place where tournaments and festivities took place.
In the 19th century Marienplatz's market moved to the nearby Viktualienmarkt, but the square still functions as the central place in Munich.
The square is dominated by the New Town Hall (Neue Rathaus): the monumental, 79 meters (259ft) high town hall was built between 1867 and 1909 by Georg Joseph Hauberrisser in Flemish Gothic style to alleviate the overcrowded Altes Rathaus nearby.
At 11, 12 and 17 o'clock each day, visitors can watch the famous Glockenspiel or carillon. The figures perform the Schläffertanz or cooper's dance, which was originally performed in 1517 at the Marienplatz to commemorate the end of the plague.
The Glockenspiel has existed since 1903, but the original clocks have been replaced by a music tape.
