You'll find Rathaus-Glockenspiel, a century-old glockenspiel and its animated wooden characters, mounted on the Neus Rathaus building. Watch it chime and re-enact stories from the 16th century, a lovely experience that lasts about 15 minutes. Admire the mechanism's intricate construction, consisting of 43 bells and 32 life-size characters. Make sure to stay until the golden rooster chirps, marking the end of the show.

  • It is really special to watch the Glockenspiel do it's thing. It is also a great experience to hear all of the church bells in town ring out. This is well worth the time if you are nearby,

  • On our first day we positioned ourselves in a cafe overlooking the main square so we could have a great view of the glockenspiel. Unfortunately what we didn’t realise was it only comes on at 11am...

  • Only Strasbourg has impressed me more. If you could help it, try to arrange your first visit to the Rathaus in Munich in the afternoon/evening. It will take your breath away 👌🏻
  • Beautiful display on the hour! Nice short musical telling a story with the moving little figurines.
