What is a Glockenspiel, you might ask? It is a famous attraction in the town centre in Munich, Germany. This big clock with chimes tells  several stories of a royal marriage, jousting stories,  and a folk dance called SchΓ€fflertanz (coopers’ dance) which all became part of Munich’s folklore.  The last to top of the attraction is the chirping of a golden bird which signifies the end of the show.

The Glockenspiel plays every 11 a.m., 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. every day. I’m so happy that my family and I managed to watch the whole performance. It was a good 12-15 minutes show and we all loved it.

The Rathaus Glockenspiel is in the heart of Marienplatz. It is easily accessible by train via Hauftbahnhof or directly at Marienplatz S-bahn station.

If you are visiting Munich, this place is a must. Do add it in your itinerary.

  1. very lovely and intricate architecture, I am not sure if I will be able to visit Germany or Munich someday, so many places to see, and I am always aching to adventure and explore nature,Though I so love visiting historical sites and am amazed with architecture and engineering, but usually, I visit them only as a side trip of a major nature adventure trip if it is nearby. So, hopefully, someday, when I find a "nature is calling me" place in Germany.

  2. I would certainly love visiting Germany and Glockenspiel from your description and photos look so fascinating! The show am sure will make my kiddos delighted! β™₯

  3. This is a very interesting clock. That's not an easy thing to build with the 32 life-size mannequins. Lucky are those like you who have witnessed those performances.
