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.

HighlightS München


Art: The gardens of the Len- bach Museum, directly oppo- site the Ko?nigsplatz square, are truly wonderful. This is an oasis of greenery at the heart of the city’s hustle and bustle. A fountain babbles away in its centre, surrounded by classic and contemporary sculptures. You can also visit the gardens without visiting the museum.
Cuisine: The Bar Theresa on the Theresienstrasse is a cosy yet stylish address with lots of plush gemstone colours. Here you can drink wonderful cocktails and enjoy some little snacks. My favourite Italian is the Perazzo on the Oskar-von-Miller- Ring. Just a few tables in a tasteful ambience. The Penne Arrabiata is a real hit (as are all the dishes!) I always order it extra-spicy. Over the years, I have become very fond of owner Pino, a car enthusiast. If you are lucky, you might see one of his Itali- an vintage vehicles outside his restaurant such as the Fiat 500 or Ferrari Dino.

Highlights München


Bar: Die goldene Bar: good drinks are served in heavy crystal glasses here in an impressive setting right in the Eng- lish Gardens – alongside the legen- dary Eisbachwelle in the even more legendary Haus der Kunst. Make sure you pay a visit on a summer’s evening and enjoy a Singapore Sling with views of the park before moving inside.
Restaurant: Sparkling Bistrot: the name sounds like a local cafe? with standing tables and sticky plastic table covers. But in fact the Sparkling Bistro is a real gourmet hideaway tucked down the Amalien Passage which quietly and almost secretly serves up gourmet food. Here there are only regional products, just a few tables, a small yet exible menu and vintage cham- pagne (hence the name).
Culture: Everyone knows the Bayeri- scher Hof. But one thing few people know: there is a cinema on the rst oor which is also open to external visitors. Drinks and snacks are served in the Astor Cinema Lounge while you enjoy the latest lm on a super-com- fortable XL sofa.

 

 

 

After a power nap, we dress up in the new AIRFIELD collection and while away the beautiful evening at the ChuChin in chic Bogenhausen. The agenda for the next day has to include the fantastic Brandhorst and Haus der Kunst museums. For a touch of royalty, the magnificent Nymphenburg Castle is easy to fall in love with. This is also the home of the porce- lain manufacturer of the same name. The ‘Nymphen- burger Porzellan’ museum in a side wing of the building is open to visitors. We hope we have made you fancy a trip to Munich – possibly the most beautiful city in the world.
