Munich is a wonderful place for shoppers. You’ll find everything from the latest fashions to customary Bavarian dress. Shopping streets, malls and outdoor markets are among your options for a full day of retail bliss.
Most Munich shops are closed on Sundays. Typical hours are from Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. (a bit earlier for smaller shops). On Saturdays most stores close by 4:00 p.m.
Munich shopping is particularly well-known for its handicrafts. Steins, the traditional Lederhosen (for men) and Dirndl (for women) clothing, and wood carvings make a great souvenir or gift.
The exclusive shopping street Maximilianstraße is home to Munich’s high-end boutiques. If you’re in the market for luxury items, you need to go no further.
If you don’t have quite so many euros in your pocket, you can head to this other Munich shopping street, the Kaufinger. This pedestrian zone is super popular with tourists and locals alike. The medieval gate Karlstor marks the start of this street, which flows through the city center and into the main town square of Marienplatz. Many of the big-name department stores are located here.
Located in the Schwabing district, this trendy quarter is an alternative shopping hot spot. It’s popular with university students and a good place to find used books and vintage clothes and jewelry. The fashion boutiques Mazel and Vero Moda are also here.
This outdoor market is right in the heart of the city. There are always fresh fruits and delectable treats on offer here.
Flea Markets can be found all over Munich, if you know where (and when) to look! Most are held on the weekends, usually Saturday, but that is always subject to change.
Check out some of the bigger flea markets at Fußgängerflohmarkt (Leonrodstraße 19), Flohmarkt Seniorenbörse (Rumfordstraße 25) and Flohmarkt in der Gaststätte Hopfendolde (Feilitzstraße 17).
