Known as the historical center of Munich, City Center encompasses Marienplatz, Odeonsplatz, Karlsplatz, Viktualienmarkt, Kaufingerstrasse, and everything around each of these landmarks.
Given the large number of historical sites, the area is usually flooded with snap-happy tourists. Since the neighborhood is also Munich’s business center, however, there are plenty of stylish men and women to add to the bustle of the streets.
As night falls and the young professionals leave work and the tourists disappear, the action moves indoors to the bars and cafés where a lively scene featuring lots of Happy Hour specials draws in a sizable afterwork crowd.
From ultra-trendy lounges to laid-back bars and pubs, City Center offers a diverse though slightly pricey scene, perfect for relaxing over cocktails on a weeknight or stopping by for a quick drink before hitting one of the nearby clubs.
