Fischbrunnen, one of Munich's most iconic city landmarks, anchors the central Marienplatz square. The stone fountain features a large fish sculpture with several young fisherman, representing the square's historic importance as a former fish market. Have a coffee sitting on the fountain's edge so you can take in the buzzing atmosphere of the plaza and admire the impressive Town Hall building. Toss a coin into the fountain's blue water and make a wish before leaving. Plan your Fischbrunnen visit and explore what else you can see and do in Munich using our Munich vacation site .

  •  The original fountain was built in 1862-65 by conrad Nord's design, but I think that the present one was probably rebuilt after the war, but it is a fountain of modern design. There is a story such as "The dive of the meat craftsman", and there seems to be a related event, but it seems to be usually a meeting place for Munich child. There is also a legend that washing your wallet in this fountain won't bother you with money for a year.

  • ... in the middle of Marienplatz. Unfortunately, the beautiful fountain goes down in the large crowds, but it is definitely an eye-catcher for this.
