“Elegance with history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

This is a great place for a stroll with impressive views of historic buildings, including the Anthropology Museum (Völkerkunde Museum) and, further towards Theatinerstrasse, with windows hopping for those who like pricey international brands. Sadly, there is only one street cafe, at the Kammertheater.
There seems to be an outdoor restaurant (not open, perhaps due to cold weather) near the grand opera house and closer to the downtown centre.
All in all, a great sight to anyone who likes architectural space.

Apart from being a beautiful street the shopping experience is quite unique with every designer shop in the world probably and prices to match. Don't miss it and see how the other half live!

“A long walk past posh shops & old buildings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Maximillianstrasse is a 20 walk, but worth it. It ends up crossing the river and ending at the impressive maximillaneum building, along the way you pass the Bavarian district government building and the large statue of Maximillian.
Also if you like window shopping, there are some pretty posh shops with impressive price tags, a good

“A very special place at Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I have only ever visited Munich at the end of November and beginning of December to celebrate my birthday and each time I arrive I make my way to Marienplatz where there is the most wonderful Christmas market. Hot chestnuts, mulled wine, chocloate and marzipan bars, wooden toys and all manner of decorations for the tree .... in the evenings it is a fabulous place to be.
In the daytime there is Maximillianstrasse and the streets around it .... shops brimming over with anything and everything you could ever wish for. It really is a shopper's heaven.

“Worth a walk day or night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Lucky for us and our wallets, it was a public holiday and all the shops were closed. We still enjoyed walking the street, seeing the fabulous store fronts and the high end brands. The street is even prettier at night when all the store fronts are lit.
