Shopping in the pedestrian zone

Munich's central pedestrian zone and most important shopping mile consists of two large streets, Kaufingerstraße and Neuhauser Straße, which merge into one another in their course and attract Munich residents and tourists alike to go shopping.

Here, traditional department stores, drugstores, electronic, trendy and souvenir stores are lined up. Small covered arcades make shopping a pleasure even when it rains.

What Sendlinger Straße has to offer

Between Rindermarkt and Hackenstraße, not far from Marienplatz, the renovated and car-free Sendlinger Straße shines in new splendor: Here, passers-by now stroll over artificial stone slabs and anthracite-colored natural stone.
