This is a place where great quality of life comes together with superb local amenities. The fourth-generation butcher is as excellent a representative as the cheesemonger or the vintner. And the delicious aromas wafting from the organic bakery every morning are simply divine. Whether it’s the crazy ice-cream maker on Amalienstrasse or the smart Vorhölzer Forum café on the roof of the Technische Universität München (TUM), the Maxvorstadt district is authentic, and contains many a hidden treasure for city explorers. Even long-standing Maxvorstadt residents love the way the district constantly reinvents itself.
