The overview live webcam shows a real-time view of the New Town Hall in Munich, Germany.


The New Town Hall (German: Neues Rathaus) is one of Munich’s most impressive landmarks and the seat of the local city government. It is located at the northern end of Marienplatz, the main square of Munich in the heart of the city. The New Town Hall is an imposing neo-Gothic building with a length of 100 meters, a tower 85 meters high and six courtyards. The main façade of the New Town Hall is decorated with a huge number of figures of Bavarian dukes, kings of the Wittelsbach dynasty, historical figures, saints, as well as characters from fairy tales and legends. The 85-meter high tower of the New Town Hall offers a breathtaking view of Munich’s historic center. The observation deck can be reached by elevator.

The New Town Hall was built between 1867 and 1908 to the design and careful guidance of the German architect Georg von Hauberrisser, and was completed in stages until 1909. In the southeastern part of the square is the Old Town Hall (German Altes Rathaus), built in 1480 by architect Jörg von Halsbach in the late Gothic style on the site of an even older town hall that was burned down by lightning. The reason for building the large New Town Hall was the small size of the Old Town Hall. The rapidly growing city needed more space for the city council.
