The New Town Hall is a town hall at the northern part of Marienplatz in Munich

Bavaria, Germany. It hosts the city government including the city council, offices of the mayors and part of the administration. In 1874 the municipality had left the Old Town Hall for its new domicile.

The building was built between 1867 and 1908 by Georg von Hauberrisser in a Gothic Revival architecture style

It covers an area of 9159 m² having 400 rooms. The 100 meters long main facade towards the Marienplatz is richly decorated. It shows the Guelph Duke Henry the Lion, and almost the entire line of the Wittelsbach dynasty in Bavaria and is the largest princely cycle in a German town hall. The central monument in the center of the main facade between the two phases at Marienplatz above the guard house, is an equestrian statue of Prince Regent Luitpold. The bay of the tower contains statues of the first four Bavarian kings.

Munich is the capital and the largest city of the German state of Bavaria

It is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, behind Berlin and Hamburg. About 1.42 million people live within the city limits. Munich was the host city of the 1972 Summer Olympics. The city’s native name, München, is derived from the Old High German Munichen, meaning “by the monks’ place”.

The city’s name derives from the monks of the Benedictine order who founded the city

hence the monk depicted on the city’s coat of arms. Black and gold—the colors of the Holy Roman Empire—have been the city’s official colors since the time of Ludwig the Bavarian. Modern Munich is a financial and publishing hub, and a frequently top-ranked destination for migration and expatriate location in livability rankings.
