One of the simple pleasures of being a Munich resident is walking through Marienplatz as the tourists gather to watch the Glockenspiel - daily at 11:00 (also at 12:00, and 17:00 in the summer).

With cameras ready there are always plenty of mouths gaping open as they stare up at the 16th century chimes high upon the city hall. There is quite a bit of build up for what is a pretty uneventful tourist attraction, but watching the spectators always is reason to smile.
