My Lieblingsorte in Munich


I know the Bavarian capital very well as I spent there the past three years, so I thought to realize a small “shopping & food” guide about Munich, that is something you can look through in addition to your professional tourist guide. The central thread is “where would I go if I spent forty-eight hours again in Munich?” and so here you are my favourite places ("Lieblingsorte") in Munich!


SHOPPING

The first place where I would go is certainly the department store Oberpollinger (Neuhauser Straße 18) because there I feel like Holly Golightly at Tiffany, where “nothing very bad could happen to you there”. I would love to have lunch at Le Buffet Restaurant on the fifth floor. From the terrace you can enjoy a beautiful view of Munich from above that becomes superb in a sunny day.

Then I would go to the Einkaufspassage Fünf Höfe (Theatinerstraße 15) that I find architecturally wonderful and the selection of shops inside is very refined. I would visit above all:
  • Longchamp (Maffeistraße 6-8 ) for the updates on the latest colours of Le Pliage bags;
  • Mohrmann Basics (Maffeistraße 6) for the sophisticated selection of the latest cutting-edge fashion trends;
  • Pupille (Theatinerstraße 8) that has a great selection of the coolest sunglasses of the moment;
  • Muji (Kardinal-Faulhaber-Straße 11) as I am fascinated by the Japanese design and pragmatism;
  • St. Emile (Theatinerstraße 15 ) because I find this brand spectacular!

After Fünf Höfe I would go the bags store of the German brand Bree (Salvatorstraße 2, Zugang Theatinerstraße). There you can find practical bags of high quality leather.

I would go also to the department store Ludwig Beck (Marienplatz 11) and I would at once have a look at the section dedicated to the hats at the ground floor, because it is simply chic and refined.

TEA

It is very agreeable during Munich's cold and snowy winter having a cup of tea or hot chocolate with a piece of cake in an elegant café.

My favourite café is Café Luitpold (Brienner Strasse 11), opened since 1888, has a very elegant atmosphere and all the cakes are delicious!

Do you want to eat some macarons as good as in France? Then you should go to Cafè Maelu (Theatinerstrasse 32).

For a typical British breakfast at whatever time of the day go to The Victorian House (Frauenstraße 14).

HAPPY HOUR

My favourite places for the happy hour are:
  • Brenner (Maximilianstraße 15), located in the elegant and expensive Maximilianstraße, has a very dynamic mood;
  • Dukatz (Maffeistraße 3a), where you can go for a happy hour as well as for breakfast (Dukatz's manager is French so you can find there delicious croissants);

DINNER

Concerning dinner, I bet you can find on your tourist guide all the best places where to eat great Bavarian food, so I am going to advice you the best place where you can eat a pizza worthy of an Italian palate: Riva Tal (Tal 44).

WELLNESS

I advice you the Blue Spa of the Hotel Bayerischer Hof (Promenadeplatz 2-6) for a pure relaxation and regeneration high above the roofs of Munich!

Gute Reise nach München!
