    Numerous shops: Pedestrian zone in center of München

    by Veghel Updated Jun 17, 2006
    M��nchen pedestrian zone
    1 more image

    The pedestrian zone in the München city center is a very good place to go shopping for a couple of hours. World class shops -- in wonderful old buildings -- are almost door-to-door and there is plenty of choice of good bars with sunny terraces. It is the perfect place for people watching. It is unbelievable that everything you see was destroyed in the second world war. Credits to the Germans, who have restored their Bavarian capital beautifully!

  • Schuh Seibl, near Viktualian Market: where to buy your first birkenstock

    by froggy81 Written Apr 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    i found it really difficult to find a pairs of birkenstock in munich. so far, this shop have the most design compare to rest of the shop esp the girl's collection. it is located at south of viktualian market, abt 100 meter after the cross the road at the traffic light.

    other place that you can buy is 1)south of the Hugendubel Bookstore in Marienplatz 2) in kaushof , one of the big mall in marienplatz.

    but like i say, colour and design is very limited, so best bet is in Schuh Seibl

    Sausages in the Snow - Razmatac & Bodx
    1 more image

    This really is a must see for all you foodies.

    We took lunch there on two occasions.
    1st time for wonderful sausages, potato rostis and pretzels.
    2nd time for the great seafood and some Reisling. Spotted a lovely old couple with a huge plate of Oysters which made me smile - shame I was leaving this day or I would have tried some for sure.

    I must go here again during the warmer months... this is the kinda place you could spend the whole day just eating, drinking, people watching! Fantastic.

    What to buy: Fruit, vegetables, cheeses, spices - you name it they have it.

    What to pay: A little more expensive than normal to shop here I believe, the smaller food markets around the city are more reasonably priced.

    RatHaus at Marienplatz

    A great place to head for to start your shopping trip.

    Very central and leads off to many streets with all the variety of shops you could dream of.

    Oh and some great historical buildings, restaurants and museums within the area too.

    Beer Steins

    by juniperjune Written Dec 29, 2005

    What to buy: You must stop in to any one of the stores that sells beer steins. Germany is known for their beer steins and coo-coo clocks. I have a whole collection of them from different parts of Germany. We used to drink out of them when I was younger, now they are on display.

    What to pay: You can pay anywhere from 20 euros to 250 euros. It is up to you!

    Nowadays they are known coloquially as either Galeria, or Kaufhof, or Galeria Kaufhof.
    There are four stores in Munich. Two in the city center at Marienplatz & Karlsplatz_Stachus, one in Rotkreuzplatz, and one out at OEZ_Olympia_Shopping_Center

  • Alois Dallmayr: Food as souvenirs

    by wildstrawberries Written Jun 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tucked in a semi-obscure street behind the Rathaus, Alois Dallmayr excites visiting relatives very much. They would find so much yummy and pretty stuff to bring home, and eachtime they would lament that they should have gone there EARLIER, then they wouldn't have to worry about souvenirs anymore.
    I love the shop too, but it's a little pricey. It's like you pay for the pretty sights of food too. But if you have the cash, hey this is your place.

    What to buy: Pralines, Riesling, Marmalade, Weisswurst in cans.
    You can also buy small portion of of the yummy food to eat for snack! Don't be afraid to ask!

    What to pay: Some people would actually say the price is reasonable, given the pretty packaging. Remember this place used to cater to royal and aristocratic tastes only.

    Promod in Munich

    This is a great store. I first ran into this store when I was in Italy and fell in love with its cool style. The clothes are pretty reasonable if you consider the European prices. I think that the quality of the clothing is nice too.

    This store is HUGE!! It is probably one of the largest Promods that I have been in all over. It has like 4 floors and everything is pretty much arranged by color group. The top floor has its sale items ( I like this floor best !)

    Anyway, its a great store to check out if you want to do a bit of clothes shopping.

    HOURS:
    Monday thru Friday: 9am to 9pm
    Saturday: 10am to 4pm

    What to buy: Skirts. I love the different skirts that they have. They have a lot of character and are very unique.

    What to pay: 6 to 90 Euro

    What to buy: I bought a 5 megapixel digital camera for 129 euros. This camera has all the bells and whistles. At home I would pay easily 2-3 times as much.

    Viktualienmarkt

    by IceBear7 Updated Feb 20, 2005
    Viktualienmarkt

    Probably the most beautiful and famous markets of München. Established in 1807 this is a great market in the city center for fruit, vegetables, flowers, eggs, mikl and other groceries. The old-fashioned word "Viktualien" is just that, groceries. You get little snacks as well as ingredients for a picknick in the English Garden for example.

    Around the market there are little statues of famous people from München like the actor Karl Valentin.

    On this market you meet locals and visitors alike.

    This is a very stylish mall with top-notch stores such as Armani or Zegna (my favourite). I can't afford it, but I can afford to look at it and have a piece of cake in the stylish cafe within the premises of the Hypo-Bank art gallery.

    Carnaval de Venise

    well....I mentioned this already as "on the beaten path" ...but for those who really like his designs...here is where to find his store...just in front of Hotel "Vier Jahreszeiten" ..... well, I don´t know what will happen to the store now since he is not alive anymore, but I heard that the store will probably be closed.

    I meanwhile learned that a lot of celebrities bought his design fashion, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, swedish king Carl Gustaf, Las Vegas stars Siegfried & Roy, actor Richard Chamberlain, german showman Thomas Gottschalk or the tenor José Carreras.

    What to buy: ties, men clothes....traditional clothes.

    What to pay: a lot I guess
