Marienplatz is one of the only city centers that doesn't feel like a city center at all. You won't be inundated with crowds, except for maybe when the Glockenspiel plays its hourly puppet show in which case, watch your wallet. Businesses and public transportation are located throughout this area, so many locals still can be seen despite the sites.
Munich's mix of old and new is evident in Marienplatz and can be appreciated by even the least educated of architectural students. It's beautiful, functional and you can find a happy, helpful German any day. Finished with this area? Hop onto Munich's excellent and thorough public metro system and be whisked away to another equally interesting part of town.

Where all the action occurs, the famous landmarks and old architecture flourish. It's easy to start in this center of the city and work your way out to the many other sites Munich has to offer. Your usual plethora of museums, historical sites and markets all in one convenient place.
Marienplatz is a great break from otherwise industrial Germany. You'll find a different sort of culture here, and tradition runs rampant. Don your lederhosen and break pretzels with the best!
