The Glockenbachviertel. Here you will find the hipsters in small designer shops and one bar cooler than the next. In the streets around the Gärtnerplatz, you can enjoy your coffee. The Isar river is just around the corner of B’01. Made a relaxing break before hitting one of the numerous clubs in the evening. Or explore one of the cultural highlights. So you have decided to visit our district? Here are some hotspots you don’t want to miss.
Munich’s best and most beautiful bookstore and a dream place for bookworms and aesthetes. Regina Moth’s store not only sell books far from mainstream mediocrity, but offers also original graphics, design goodies and curiosities in a inspiring environment. Regular readings and exhibits extend the spectrum and broaden the participants’ horizon. Should you still have not found what you are looking for: special wishes are always welcome.
Locals and tourists love the Isar. A natural and recreational space with an extensive river bed, large gravel banks and adjacent green areas. The perfect place for grilling, chilling, biketours and much more. During the summer when the sun pops out, people flock here to grill, sunbathe, swim and hang out with friends. Come winter, it’s a rambler’s delight – ideal for a quiet stroll to take in some of the city’s scenery. Wanna discover? Nothing is better than hopping on a bike and cruising down the river. Our tip: stopover at the cool barbecue parties near the Flaucher area.
There are souvenirs – and then there are souvenirs. And yes, there’s certainly more to buy in Munich than just giant tumblers of beer and typical mugs! If you are looking for unusual gifts this is the perfect shop. Servus Heimat offers funny but definitely no kitschy gifts that spread Munich atmosphere. So if average souvenirs bore you – hop on over to this cool store.
Sailing ships, models of atoms, windmills, space probes, diesel locomotives, industrial robots, organs, lifeboats,… this unbelievable abundance of technical achievement can be found in the Deutsches Museum. A house of superlatives: it is not only one of the first scientific-technological museums in the world, but also one of the most frequently visited and with an area of 50,000 square meters the biggest of all.
If you want to feel like a local head to the Viktualienmarkt, conveniently located right in the center of town near Marienplatz. The stalls of Munich’s outdoor market are loaded with delicious fresh foods from nearby farms, including cheeses, meats, eggs, fruits, and vegetable… Choose the tasty tidbits for your picnic lunch or treat yourself to spicy bockwurst and a Bavarian beer at any of the tempting outdoor food-stops. Great fun and oh-so-tasty!
Munich’s trendiest place, crammed with hip cafés, bars and fashion shops and the heart of the vibrant gay community. A popular quarter full of life at all hours. By day, the shops harbor some of the coolest young designers and the central square becomes a popular hotspot for all ages when people sip a cool drink at one of the streetside cafes. By night, the area is equally atmospheric, with its relaxed bars and laid-back nightclubs. Must see, must hang out!
