Tower drive-up New Town Hall

Alter Peter, Frauenkirche and much more – from the tower of the Neues Rathaus you can see all the important sights of Munich. And thanks to the elevator, you can be up in a few seconds.

Munich has many great views – one of the most beautiful is definitely the one from the tower of the New Town Hall. In just a few moments you are 85 metres high with the elevator and you can see a different highlight of the city in every direction: directly opposite stands the Alter Peter (church), on one side of the tower is the Frauenkirche (church), on the other the Altes Rathaus (old town hall) and to the north there is the Italian-looking Theatinerkirche (church). And if the weather is good, the impressive Alpine chain stretches across the entire horizon to the south.

Especially at the time of the carillon there is little going on on the town hall tower. With us you can book your ticket conveniently online.

Seeing the New Town Hall from the inside is also a special experience. If you want to visit a guided tour through the building in neo-Gothic style, you can book the New Town Hall tour or the combination of town hall and tower drive-up.
