Where is the best place to see the Glockenspiel in Munich?
Since the Glockenspiel is located on the facade of the New Town Hall, which stands prominently in Marienplatz, the performances can be seen more or less from anywhere in the square. It is always wise to get there well before the show to choose the best spot to watch it.
Alternatively, you can go to Café Glockenspiel, situated on the top floor of the otherwise nondescript building right across from the clock tower. In this case, you can avoid crowds and enjoy the show by looking out the window. Be sure to reserve a table in advance, as space is limited.
