Munich: Shopping Holiday

Folklore and age-old traditions with sleek BMWs, designer boutiques and modern people

Munich Shopping Holiday

Shopaholics will not want to leave Munich, such is the selection of shopping opportunities which range from the bustling local markets to department stores. The ‘must do’ is the central pedestrian zone at Alstadt, comprised of Kaufinger Strasse, Neuhauser Strasse and Marienplatz. Shoppers can find department stores and some of the most-well known brands including Kenzo and Armani.

During a Munich shopping holiday, the city also has several flea markets, which is a cheaper alternative to conventional stores and offers visitors the opportunity to try a spot of bargaining. Viktualienmarkt, the bustling, colorful food market at the eastern end of the Marienplatz pedestrian zone, is one of the city’s major attractions.
