Located in Marienplatz
, the heart of Munich, Glockenspiel is a very famous tourist attraction. It is a clockwork structure built in the 19th century and is exactly opposite Café Glockenspiel
, which provides a perfect view of the structure. A mock dance is shown which reenacts the tale of the marriage of the local Duke Wilhelm V. The duration of the act relies on the tune played, which is approximately between 10 to 15 minutes. A tiny gilt bird chirps three times to signal the end of the performance. A must see spectacle, when in Munich.
