Marienplatz is a beautiful structure and definitely a place you'll want to check out as a tourist. It's not something that takes a long time on the itinerary - but it is historically interesting and there are many cafes/restaurants near.

You must visit Marienplatz when in Munich. The glockenspiel plays a few times a day. I think 11, 12 and 5.
