Munich's Marienplatz is one of the city's central squares; when visiting Munich, cruise through the Marienplatz at 11:00, 12:00 and 5:00 to witness the famous Glockenspiel, or carillon, in the new Town Hall tower.
Stop in at the Marienplatz and have a Bavarian beer. Pass some time sussing free bands and folks-watching. Cruise up to the Karlsplatz and do some shopping. Visit the very old and beautiful Frauenkirche cathedral. For more on what to do in Munich, see the student travel Munich travel guide

EF Europe Tour 2006
I visited Munich in spring 2006 with a group of Texas students on an EF Tours custom trip called Traveling Through History. The tour was a delightful way to explore parts of Europe, and I recommend teachers and students alike look into booking an EF trip for an easy way to see Europe.
