The Glockenbachviertel is not only home to Munich's gay and lesbian scene, but also an exciting place to live and go shopping and clearly one of Munich's most picturesque boroughs.

The Glockenbachviertel harbours fashionable bars as well as snug bistros and attracts young people of all backgrounds. It is the best place to go if you are looking for exciting shops, for example on Hans-Sachs-Straße. In the 7te Himmel - German for "cloud nine" - you can find individual fashion and jewellery. "Artefakt", on Hans-Sachs-Straße number 13, employs young designers who dye and paint their fabrics themselves, for exclusive and unique clothes for the courageous. And the café SAXS, on Hans-Sachs-Straße number 5, offers no less than 160 seats on its sunny terrace.
