Shopping street “Maximillianstrasse”

Address: Maximillianstrasse
Opening hours: weekdays from 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday – from 10 am to 6 pm, closed on Sunday.
The shopping on Maximilianstrasse is more than just a casual walk from shop to shop. This somewhat snobbish street is a remarkable blend of exquisite architecture, culinary delights and shopping madness. There are more than 70 luxury boutiques such as Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Giorgio Armani, Gucci and others in this street. First time we went there, our goal was to go only to the Louis Vuitton store, yet we ended up walking the entire Maximilianstrasse street. We immediately understood why this street is considered to be the most expensive and exquisite in Munich. The Opera House, the five-star Kempinski Hotel, the lavish building of Bavarian Government – all these and many other architectural masterpieces are located here. Expensive cars are parked along the street giving it even more glitter. According to many, Maximilianstrasse resembles the famous Avenue Montaigne in Paris.


In the Maximillianstrasse designer boutiques, one can find the latest collections of fashionable brand-name clothing, shoes, accessories, handbags and more. There is the widest choice for every taste there. Service in the boutiques is top notch, the staff know their merchandise almost by heart and are able to give really good advice. The buyer usually feels very comfortable. Those who want to give a break to their credit card from the shopping spree can stop at the Brennergrill restaurant (Maximilianstrasse 15) offering Mediterranean cuisine. It is near the famous Four Seasons Hotel (Vier Jahreszeiten). It is a cozy restaurant; in the summer they set a lot of tables outside.

In 2011, a high-end store for children opened at Maximilianstrasse 35. It offers a great selection of children’s clothes ranging from simple and convenient to extraordinary and even extravagant. They also have children’s furniture, strollers, toys, etc. It’s very cute and nicely decorated; in other words, it is a fashion boutique for children. I think if a person likes chic, quality and exclusive things, then the Maximilianstrasse boutiques are just perfect for shopping.

Shopping streets “Kaufingerstrasse” and “Neuhauser Strasse”

Munich Shopping The Pasing Arcaden shopping mall opened in 2011. This mall impresses, first of all, by its huge retail area. 150 stores are located on three floors. If you can, it is better to go to the Arcaden in the morning or, at least, during the weekdays, because it is overcrowded and noisy in the evenings and on Saturdays. In Passing Arcaden, you can find a variety of clothing stores, electronics and household goods. It may not be worth coming here for those who are looking for unique stores or high-end designer boutiques, though there are a few brand-names here, such as Pierre Cardin and Marc O’Polo. Most shops in this mall are of popular everyday brands: H&M, C&A, Vero Moda, Zara, Deichmann, etc. They always have a wide selection of inexpensive and high-quality clothing for the whole family.


It is difficult to give any specific advice about snacking because of a large variety of places to eat in this mall. At every step in the Arcaden, there are snack bars, cafes and small restaurants, so everyone has to decide for themselves according to their own preferences. Last time we were there, we really liked Aran. They serve very good sandwiches and wonderful coffee. In good weather, you can sit outside on a large and beautiful veranda, which is unusual for shopping malls.
