This is the hub of life in Munich and it’s great that it is car free. There’s always someone playing music or putting on some entertainment so it’s never dull. Great place to people watch!

Walking around you will be impressed by the multitude of beautiful shops and restaurant choices. The historical buildings are amazing! Perfectly restored after the war. It’s awe inspiring.

I would definitely schedule this location on a walking tour through the center of town. When walking through Munich, it's along the main route anyways.
