Shops

The range of shops in Munich is vast and varied; from overstocked but surprising gift shops to expensive shoe shops. Most visitors opt for the shops in Munich's city centre. At Marienplatz, the city's central square, you will find several shops. Visit, for example, the Marienhof here, a luxury department store with floors full of fashionable clothing brands to practical household items. In the nearby Galeries Lafayette, shop upscale French fashion and at Debenhams, buy lovely beauty products.

Shopping in Munich

The car-free shopping area around Kaufingerstraße is one of the best destinations for shopping in Munich. You can shop designer clothes at Hugo Boss or Printemps. You will also find big international fashion chains like H&M and Zara. Still, the shopping street has a Munich touch thanks to local entrepreneurs offering German wood carvings or Alpine-style jackets. For trendy shops, visit Neuhauser Straße. Here you will always find the latest fashion by well-known designers such as Prada and Gucci as well as emerging, young designers from Munich and the rest of Europe.

The best department store

Looking for the Munich version of our Bijenkorf? Choose from one of Munich's three best-known department stores.

  1. On Marienplatz is the seven-storey Ludwig Beck department store, which opened its doors as far back as 1861, and remains one of the city's largest department stores. Inside the department store you will find several independent shops.
  2. Munich's most photogenic department store is Department Store Hirmer. The shop floor has a total area of over 9,000 square metres, where you will primarily find menswear.
    Address: Kaufingerstraße 28, along the Neuhauser Straße
  3. The Oberpollinger department store is a bit like a French department store. In fact, you will find a champagne bar in addition to well-known fashion brands.

Culinary shopping

You can perfectly combine a day of shopping in Munich with a culinary outing. Dine in one of Munich's many restaurants or assemble your own lunch in the fragrant markets. At the Viktualienmarkt on the south side of Marienplatz, you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and cheese almost daily. Also visit Dallmayr delikatessen, which has been around since 1725. Here you can sample delicious snacks and wines. Of course, you can also walk into a café, bar or restaurant on the spur of the moment, as you never have to search or walk for long from the shopping streets.

Are shops open on a Sunday?

Most shops in Munich are not open on Sundays. By law only petrol stations, bakeries and supermarkets are allowed to be open on Sundays. Even around public holidays, shopping Sundays are rare. Shopping evenings are more common, although it varies from shop to shop whether the doors actually stay open or close.
