“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Schwabing offers food, bars, shopping, all well- known. Take a walk along the side of Schwabing near the Engischer Garten for some fine examples of Munich architecture, old and new. Go by the Standesamt along the way and see couples who have just / or are about to have their civil wedding ceremonies within. (A church wedding is nice, but in Germany it does not count! So most have two ceremonies, one civil and one in the church)

“No longer the center of artists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Schwabing became famous because it has been the center of artist and culture during decades. Nowadays it is rather commercial, with cheap shops and burger-chains. But it is still very nice to pass at the Leopoldstraße during the summertime at night. It is great to have coffee or an ice-cream hat the terrace of one of the cafés or ice-cream parlors.

Too painfully hip, too painfully expensive. Car parking? Ha ha
