Living in Munich Schwabing

Due to its rich history, Schwabing is one of Munich's most famous areas. Even today, it still draws from the image as a Bohemian and artist's quarter, which it earned in the late 19th century. Back then, many artists and creatives settled down in Schwabing, amongst them such big names as Thomas Mann and Wassily Kandinsky. Over the course of several decades, they shaped the quarter into a retreat for nonconformists and creatives from all over the world.

While the quarter was decried as a center for the in-crowd during the postwar era, it is now mostly known as the nightlife area. The impressive Leopoldstraße divides the quarter into east and west and is still the city's most famous boulevard. The eastern part is directly bordered by the English Garden, while the western part of this idyllic district reaches all the way to Kurfürsten- and Hohenzollernplatz. Around the so called "Münchner Freiheit", which is not only the area's transportation hub but also the center of its nightlife, you can find numerous bars, movie theaters, and smaller theaters, some of them with long traditions. Schwabing is also home to many boutiques and shops perfect for a shopping spree.
