T he village of a million inhabitants, pearl of the south, Italy’s northern- most city and the city of city slickers – Munich has lots of nick- names but for the inhabitants of the Bavarian capital, it is the most beautiful city in the world. We will take you on a stroll with us and are sure you will soon be in raptures and wanting to pay this beautiful city a visit. We start out from the world-famous ‘Viktualien- markt’ which belongs to the locals in the morning in particular. After enjoying a freshly pressed juice and delicious coffee, we weave our way across the Marienplatz square to the AIRFIELD Store on the Theatinerstrasse street. Impressed by the new autumn/winter collection, we set off in search of food to the Odeonsplatz square and hope to find a free spot at the popular Schuhmann’s. The landlord and world-famous barkeeper Charles Schuhmann spoils his guests with Mediterranean dishes and classic down-to-earth food. The mains are delicious but there is still room for a delicious tarte – an insider’s tip. Those wishing to explore something more hearty and traditional in the Bavarian capital are advised to try the Franziskaner on the Residenzstrasse. To burn off the calories again, we turn off from the Odeonsplatz into the English Gardens. After walking for a few minutes, we come to a place which is unique in the world – the Eisbachwelle which is loved and feared by surfers from all over the world. This is the only place where you can ride the waves in the centre of a city. This is really a joy to behold for those of us who surf here. To make sure we have some energy left for the evening, we hop onto the tram and head off for the Chinese Tower. After a short refresh- ment break, we stroll on to Schwabing, the artists’ quarter of the 60s and 70s. Today you can find uncon- ventional concept stores, trendy restaurants and cool bars here. Schwabing was also the favourite quarter of Helmut Fischer, the protagonist of ‘Monaco Franze’ from the TV series of the same name. This Munich native also plays a key role in the design concept of the Ruby Lilly Hotel & Bar.
