Tour of the New Town Hall

Magistrates, Monachia and magnificent celebrations: explore the Neue Rathaus (New Town Hall) on Marienplatz (square) with an official guide from the City of Munich.

The neo-gothic Munich Town Hall offers much more than the world-famous Glockenspiel. This tour, which lasts around 90 minutes, will take you through its grand rooms and to the building’s balcony, the stage for FC Bayern’s championship celebrations. The route will also take you through the reading room at the Law Library, which has been used as a setting for films such as the musical “Cabaret” with Liza Minelli and the German kid’s adventure film “Bibi Blocksberg”.

During the tour, you will learn about the history of the Town Hall and the stories behind some of the city’s historical figures who adorn the Neue Rathaus’ façade. Here's a report from our author we sent to a city hall tour – she felt a bit like being in a Harry Potter movie and was pretty excited.

The Munich City Hall also offers the opportunity to see the city centre from above – an incomparable experience: Book an additional tower drive-up or the combination of city hall tour and tower drive-up.

Currently no guided tours and tower drive-up

Due to the current situation, no tower drive-ups and tours of the New Town Hall are possible until at least October 1st. You can still buy a voucher for a future tour of the New Town Hall including the tower drive-up here. For more information about your stay in Munich please have a look here.
