As a guest of our hotel, you are staying in one of the oldest parts of Munich. The first written record of the borough Au dates to the early 14th century; and some things of that time have survived to the present day. For example, the market Auer Dult on the square Mariahilfplatz. Even after 700 years, it still is an intrinsic part of the calender of events.
The market is the cultural highlight of the borough, and it takes place on the Mariahilfplatz three times a year. In spring we call it “Maidult”, in summer “Jakobidult” and in autumn “Kirchweihdult” – and every time its rides, traditional treats and handicrafts attract a lot of people to the Au. On one of the December weekends, before Christmas, you can also enjoy an Advent bazaar.
You just have to cross the street to be right in the middle of it all.
Featuring 73 000 square metres of exposition space in total, the Deutsche Museum is said to be the world’s biggest technical museum. The sheer number of 28 000 objects in 50 different scientific areas makes it almost impossible to see everything in just one day. You can of course try, or you can just stay a little bit longer with us.
It takes less than ten minutes by foot to get to the main building of the Deutsche Museum.
A cosy café in a toilet house? What sounds funny and absurd, becomes reality at the hill Nockherberg: Welcome to the “Crönlein”! A spacious room inside the wall, once a public toilet for park promenaders, is now a place where tasty pizzas, good coffee and refreshments are served in a cosy atmosphere.
It only takes you ten minutes to get to the former toilet house.
The Müller’sche Volksbad (Müller’s Public Bath) is the oldest and most beautiful public bath house in Munich. After an extensive renovation in 2017, it is now restored to its former glory. For the relaxation and well-being of its guests, it offers one large and one smaller pool, a Roman-Irish steam bath with an outdoor area as well as a Finnish sauna.
At a brisk walking pace, it takes ten minutes to get to the public bath house.
The Bavarian capital is known for his vibrant cultural life. The Gasteig certainly is one of the most important event locations in the city. The conservatory “Richard Strauss” and the philharmonic orchestra “Münchner Philharmoniker” are based here. But it’s not all about the music: All year long, readings, theatre performances and other cultural highlights take place at the Gasteig too.
If you are lucky with the traffic lights, you’ll reach the Gasteig after a 10-minute walk.
Get the beach feeling right in the heart of Munich! For a couple of years now, the summer open-air season has been enhanced by the “Kulturstrand” (Culture Beach). It takes place on the Museum Island and lasts several weeks. You can enjoy DJ’s and bands live on stage, listen to readings or watch a good film under the stars. The culture beach is particularly popular with students and young people.
It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to the Culture Beach.
Another cultural meeting point in Munich is the Muffatwerk. What once served as a steam power plant, is now the stage for alternative music bands from all over the world. Dancing workshops are held regularly here too, and the poetry slam has already become an institution. The many parties at the Muffatwerk are also very famous!
Even if you’ll have to walk 15 minutes to get here, it’s worth it!
We really don’t want you to miss out on one the most traditional Christmas markets in town. For over 40 years now, this Christmas market has been taking place on the square “Weißenburger Platz” in the borough Haidhausen. Idyllic, romantic and with almost 60 stands just big enough not to get overcrowded.
The Weißenburger Platz is a 15-minute walk away from the hotel, and it’s the perfect destination for an atmospheric winter walk.
