As a major city Munich can’t really disappoint as far as shopping goes. Well except for the price. Munich is an expensive city (the most expensive in Germany) so it’s not a place to go shopping for bargains. What you will find is exclusive boutiques and fashion brands which have enviable ranges of clothing and accessories. On the lower end of the scale there are all the chain favourites like H&M and Zara here too.
The main shopping districts besides the centre city including Schwabing (which is a bit less expensive) and you’ll find a lot of students shopping. It has boutiques, second hand stores and book shops as well as small-produce and flea markets. You’ll find a lot of second-hand bookstores are on Schellingstraße, Türkenstraße around Maxvorstadt. The Glockenbachviertel is a trendy area where there are boutiques from new designers as well as cafes — all in a relaxed and peaceful setting.
You probably can’t take home cases of Weiß bier and Weißwurst — the great things Munich is known for — but there are some fun souvenirs you could consider. What about a traditional drinking glass, the Maßkrug (holds 1 litre!) or how about Bavarian clothes like a Dirndl or Lederhosen? Wear them around the home, or they make a great Christmas party costume!
