Munich’s tourist district

If you’re interested in tourism during your trip to Munich, then we suggest the Zentrum or Altstadt, which are areas in the city centre.

In fact, this is the city’s busiest area, where you’ll find large shopping centres, luxury boutiques and most of the city’s tourist attractions.

Neighbourhoods to avoid

Munich is a very large city, and a pleasant place to live. In fact, there are few areas to avoid in the Bavarian capital. However, one negative point concerns the railway station district.

This is one of the most difficult neighbourhoods for the police, and the situation is said to have worsened over the course of 2016. There has been an increase in aggressive begging, drug dealing and prostitution.

We therefore recommend that you avoid these areas during your stay in Munich.

Best areas to go out in Munich

If you’re coming to Munich to have the time of your life, the best place to stay is in Schwabing, which is still the favourite area for students and artists.

Schwabing is the place to stay in Munich if you like to hang out in trendy cafés and drink craft beer. Everyone dreams of living here. The area is also packed with Michelin-starred restaurants and shops.

Top 5 things to see and do in Schwabing

  • Go shopping at Herzogstr
  • Family dining at the Greek tavern Parea and the Korean restaurant Seoul
