Where to shop in Munich

No Munich travel guide is complete without a proper section dedicated to the many shopping options this city has to offer. Its main shopping hub is the area that stretches from the Marienplatz train station to Odeonsplatz, with some 1.5 miles of pedestrian streets; this is where most of the main department stores are found. For a high-end shopping experience, head to Maximilianstrasse, Residenzstrasse and Theatinerstrasse.

If you are looking for something a little more fun and eccentric, pick a Munich map and head to Schwabing, in the north, particularly the streets of Schellingstrasse and Hohenzollenstrasse. In Elisabethplatz, near Schwabing, there’s a charming open air market.

If you would like to bring back some souvenirs from your visit, choose something related to any of the two favorite Munich attractions: beer and sledges. You’ll find plenty of related items at good prices at Ludwig Mory, in the city council at Marienplatz.

Finally, no Munich tour is complete without a visit to Viktualienmarkt, the city’s prominent food market. Not only it will it supply you with excellent food and wine, but also it will help you understand the nature of Munchers in a way no Munich guide could describe.
