I have been there many times, having friends who live there. It has always been one of the nicest places for students to live, work and hang out. Lots of nice restaurants, cafés and shops.

Schwabing is a neighbourhood you can easily spend a full day, just strolling around, discovering plenty of nice restaurants, cafes, shops. Look at all the people strolling by. The Leopoldstrasse runs right through the middle of it, and is, in my opinion the least attractive bit.

This is the most stupid idea we ever seen. This thing belongs in a zoo or a park, but not off the main street in Munich Schwabing! If you are a rock climber, you may like to get a rope and test it out! Lol...

Schwabing covers the area beyond the Siegestor on Leopoldstrasse and is home to universities, museums, the English Gardens and the Walking man sculpture. Older than the city of Munich, it used to be home to many artists and intellectuals including Lenin.

Took a long walk along Franz-Josef-, Animiller- and Romer-strasse, which a friend has recommended me as streets to scour for Jugendstil houses. And, yes, there were at least a dozen great buildings in this area (including the house of the White Rose kids). The area is full of good places to eat, grab a beer or just sit lazily in the sun. Cool, small gardens and squares everywhere.

This area has plenty of shops and cafe's to explore and a market area too. It's got a quite intimate feel to it, although several of the shops and cafes seemed a little empty or closed around 4:30-5pm on a Sat. afternoon which sapped the atmosphere somewhat. I imagine it may be more vibrant around standard mealtimes.

We visited the X'mas market here which offers a wide range of very nice and local handcrafted goods produced by very skilled and proud artisans. These handicrafted goods are unique here and this visit will complement and complete your tour of X'mas markets in Munich.
