- The Old Town Hall is the oldest building on Marienplatz. The majority of the building dates from a building period of 1470-1480 by Jörg von Halsbach, who also designed the cathedral (Frauenkirche). The tower was completely destroyed in allied bombing in world war two, but it was rebuilt for the 1972 Olympics to the same style as it had been in the late 1400s. Today, the tower is home to Munich's toy museum while the rest of the building is used for large events held by the city council.
