Where's the best part of town to spend the night? Some districts are more known than others, but they are all charming in their own way – no matter where you choose to stay.
The boundaries between Munich’s districts are fluid, but they definitely exist. Many locals who’ve been living in Munich for a long time love their neighbourhood so much, they can hardly imagine living elsewhere or bring themselves to leave it to visit friends or eat in another part of the city – though this is also often due to comfort. Over time, Munich has expanded outwards from the city centre, swallowing up some of its neighbouring small towns. All districts whose names end in ‘ing’, like Schwabing or Sendling, were formerly independent towns in their own right. If you are not sure where you want to stay in Munich, here is some assistance.
Schwabing is probably one of the most famous areas of Munich. Much has happened in this district, from student revolts to the wild 60s originating here. Since then, Schwabing has become a very popular area for students. Restauranteurs are cashing in on this, opening bars or snack bars on every corner. After all, the young people want to be entertained. But if this is too much for you, we recommend the next part of town.
Sendling is one of the quieter neighbourhoods, despite its fantastic location. It boasts quick access the mountains, and is only a 10-minute bike ride to the city centre and the Isar is also reachable by foot in around 10 minutes. Sendling is like a recreational area for young families, and the food scene here is growing too. This district boasts the most beautiful street in Munich, the Valleystraße (named after the village Valley, 40km south of Munich).
West of Sendling lies the Giesing district of Munich. Here you can find the real, raw, original Munich. Here, locals use the Bavarian dialect and everyone knows each other. This is also home to the soccer club of Munich, the TSV 1860 Munich. Win or lose, the “Löwen” (lions) are truly worshipped by their fans in Giesing. That is honest passion and loyalty.
If Giesing is too raw for you, book a place to stay in Bogenhausen. This is the neighbourhood of the rich and beautiful and those aspire to that lifestyle. Villas with Porsches in the driveway line the streets of this beautiful and green area. Unfortunately, the great views are often obscured by the high walls surrounding the neighbourhood properties.
To escape the city’s hustle and bustle, settle down in the Westend. Culturally more colourful than other quarters, the locals here are very friendly. The neighbourhood boasts great amenities, wide pavements, and a large square with a playground – but the rent is still in affordable in the area. Many start-ups have settled here and set up co-working offices in backyard garages. Westend locals like to meet in one of the many beautiful cafés for a chat. Unfortunately though, there is very little night life in this area.
