Where to stay in a Spa Hotel in Munich?
The centre of history and architecture: Altstadt-Lehel
Located at the centre of the Altstadt-Lehel district, Marienplatz is one of Munich’s most stunning historical sights. Used for as a medieval market place when Munich was first established in 1158, today the square is an intersection of captivating neo-Gothic architecture and modern restaurants and bars. The iconic square is named after Mary’s Column, a sculpture of the Virgin Mary that’s stood in the square since 1638. In front of the New Town Hall’s main entrance, a small fountain from the Middle Ages called the Fischbrunnen (Fish Fountain) immediately catches the eye. Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) is another example of the city’s magnificent Gothic architecture. Several times throughout the day, the New Town Hall’s glockenspiel chimes narrate two historic stories and enthral visitors. Altstadt-Lehel’s many attractions are best seen on foot, so visitors will want to bring their walking shoes. Or better yet, they could arrange for a massage and various other treatments to rest their weary feet at spa hotels in Munich.
