This is my favorite bar. Copper lampshades, wrought-iron room dividers and a couple of red lightbulbs, combined with large cubes for tables and seating, give it an urban look. Tiny, funky and a very friendly place.

My all time favorite souvenir shop! It’s 70s, all very tongue-in-cheek and is certainly the most stylish Bavarian kitsch I’ve ever seen. If you’re looking for a souvenir or a present, this is the place. Their bestsellers include stylish and colorful T-shirts with prints of a glittery Munich skyline, King Ludwig and all sorts of Bavarian animals!

The interior of this café-lounge is just like your granny’s living room! I love their fantastic selection of 30 different hot and cold chocolates. Another treat is the Astra Beer from St. Pauli, Hamburg, as it’s hard to find in Munich.

I can’t live without a good hairdresser. I can highly recommend Michael Sperl and his team. They schedule one-hour appointments, which is quite rare, they’re on the pulse with cuts and color, and they’re totally consistent.

The sauna at the Prinzregentenstadion looks like something from the fancy interior magazine Wallpaper. It’s very minimalistic, with brown tiles, skylights and lovely warm wooden panels on the walls. Thursday is Ladies’ Day! You can also use the outdoor swimming pool.
