Munich Travel Guide

Districts

Munich is divided into 25 administrative districts. However, those districts don't necessarily reflect historical relationships and connections of neighbourhoods, or make much sense to travellers. Therefore, the districts provided below describe entities in a travel rather than administrative sense. Most of Munich's main attractions are in the Altstadt and Maxvorstadt; the districts of Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt and Haidhausen are major night-life spots. The other areas, while mostly residential, feature some hidden gems, which are definitely worth a visit.

Altstadt (Old City)The city centre with a pedestrian zone that is one big shopping street, and the majority of Munich's most famous travel sights around Marienplatz
MaxvorstadtThe Brain of Munich with a relaxed and studenty atmosphere, which is home to most attractions that aren't located in the city centre, including the world famous galleries Pinakotheken, along with cozy cafs and bars and several universities
Ludwigsvorstadt-IsarvorstadtNight-life area immediately south of the centre, home to many cafs, restaurants, bars, clubs and theatres, hotels and hostels, Munich Central Station, the Oktoberfest grounds and, last but not least, the Deutsches Museum, the world's biggest museum of science and engineering and the focal point of Munich's gay culture
HaidhausenAround the station Munich East, to which Europe's largest contiguous party area Kultfabrik & Optimolwerke draws tens of thousands of people every weekend
North MunichThe North of Munich is full of parks, gardens and relaxation areas. It includes the district of Schwabing, dominated by 19th-century architecture and the famously expansive English Garden, the park and palace of Nymphenburg, the Olympiagelnde (site of the 1972 Olympic Games) with the BMW Welt and the Allianz Arena in the far north end.
East MunichA mostly residential area with an upmarket neighbourhood to the north, a working-class neighbourhood to the south, and the Munich Zoo and the Flaucher beaches along the east side of the river Isar.
South-West MunichScarcely populated in the west and mainly residential area in the south, with the main attractions Flaucher islands in the river Isar and Blutenburg Castle
