Munich City Guide: 224 Best Travel Tips from Munich Locals

Haidhausen in Munich

Why locals love it

Haidhausen, the so-called "French Quarter" is over 1,200 years old and has developed from a poor workers area to one of the most popular residential ares with many street cafés and small boutiques. Schwabing is still the most famous quarter in Munich but maybe that is the advantage of Haidhausen as it still overlooked by many tourists.

Why you should visit it

Window shopping in the many small shops, a coffee break in a street café, a cold beer in one of the most beautiful beer gardens in Munich(Hofbräukeller at the Wiener Platz), a walk along the river - oh Haidhausen, you are beautiful!

Special tip

You will find many alternatives to the overcrowded major sights in this quarter - the perfect place to avoid tourist masses!
