German Language School Munich

Your language school is situated in the very centre of Munich, the Bavarian capital with a heart. There is a great deal to discover here …

sprachschule_01

Food & drink

The ground floor of the language school building has a branch of ´Vincenz Murr‘. Apart from filled rolls, the traditional Munich butcher offers light salads and reasonably priced warm lunches. In the Schwanthalerstraße, you can find branches of the well-known fast food chains, Subway and McDonalds. In the Sonnenstraße 11, the Café ‘Bohne & Maltz’ invites you to have lunch or unhurried coffee and cake in the afternoon.

sprachschule_02

Just a few yards away, on the Stachus and in Munich’s pedestrian precinct, there are the right things for every taste: well-known fast food chains, delicious pastries, fresh fruit and vegetables. Numerous cafés and restaurants offer you scrumptious meals and a relaxing atmosphere. Why not just test the famous ‘Augustinerbräu’ in the Neuhauser Straße 27!

Shopping & souvenirs

The central location of the language school allows you to launch a wonderful shopping expedition from there. Simply cross the Sonnenstraße and walk about 150m to the Stachus. Check out the shopping on the Stachus itself and then turn through the Karlstor into the Neuhauser Straße (later on Kaufingerstraße). This street connecting the Stachus and the Marienplatz is Munich’s real shopping mall.

sprachschule_03

Here you can find all the well-known brand outlets such as Benetton, Esprit, H&M, Zara etc. as well as some original Munich shops. The very popular ones are: the bookseller ‘Hugendubel’ with its enormous range on Karlsplatz 11-12 and Marienplatz 22, the high-class department store ‘Oberpollinger’ in the Neuhauser Straße 18, the traditional and trendy men’s outfitters ‘Hirmer’ in the Kaufingerstraße 28 and the so-called department store of the senses, ‘Ludwig Beck’, at Marienplatz 11, whose range extends from the finest confectionary to designer fashion.
Whoever then has not had enough of shopping can find on the Marienplatz the ideal starting point to go to other shopping malls in Munich, e.g. the exclusive shopping alley ‘Fünf Höfe’ in the Theatinerstraße and the luxurious Maximilianstraße close by. Then down into the valley with shops for traditional costumes and souvenirs, to the Viktualienmarkt with countless regional specialities or into the Sendlinger Straße with its many small hip shops. Individual designers have moved into the old houses in the adjacent Gärtnerplatz district and scenesters can also find quaint shops beyond the mainstream in the student quarter of Schwabing.

Sightseeing & culture

Many of Munich’s sights can be reached quickly and simply from the language school. On the Stachus about 150m away you can admire one of the old city gates, the Karlstor. Also take a look at the other side of the street: the old Palace of Justice is impressive with its venerable architecture. A few yards behind the Stachus Lenbachplatz begins with its historic buildings and with the House of Artists and its changing exhibitions.

sprachschule_04

If you choose the way from the Stachus through the pedestrian precinct in the direction of Marienplatz, you can see some of Munich’s best known cultural treasures, including the Bürgersaalkirche, the Richard Strauss Fountain and the Frauenkirche. The Marienplatz itself is dominated by the neo-Gothic City Hall with its world-famous glockenspiel. You can listen to it every day at 11 and 12 o’ clock as well as at 5 o’ clock pm from March until October. If you walk down from the Marienplatz through the valley and turn left through the little lanes to the Platzl, you can admire another Munich landmark, the Hofbräuhaus, the ideal place to combine sightseeing with a short break.
But Munich offers much more to those interested in culture: from the premises of the Pinakothek, the art gallery, or the world-famous Geman Museum, over magnificent buildings such as Nymphenburg Palace, the Maximilianeum or the University to modern highlights like the Olympic Park, the new BMW Headquarters or the popular Allianz Arena belonging to FC Bayern München. We have detailed information available for you at the language school and you can also obtain good material at the Tourist Information Centre in Munich City Hall.

Partying & relaxing

Munich is a city for parties. This is particularly noticeable in the last weeks of September, when the largest popular festival in the world, the Oktoberfest, takes place on the Theresienwiese. For two long weeks there is nothing but dancing, singing and drinking in 14 large marquees, several smaller tents, countless stalls and many crazy attractions. But Munich is a veritable party city not just at the time of the Oktoberfest.

sprachschule_05

All year round traditional Bavarian taverns, trendy pubs, hip bars and well-known clubs invite you to celebrate a party. City and scene magazines like ‘inMünchen’ or ‘Prinz München’ and the many flyers in the pubs and cafés of the city offer you an overview of forthcoming parties.
The day after the party it is recommendable to visit one of the many, magnificently tended parks, such as the Englischer Garten, the Westpark or the parks along the Isar. When the weather is cooler, you can relax in recreation and sports facilities like the Müllersches Volksbad, the Westbad or the Olympic indoor swimming pool.

Cars & transport

If you would like to get to know not just Munich, but also other attractive areas in Bavaria during your stay, it might be worthwhile renting a car. All the usual car rentals such as Budget, Hertz, Sixt or Europcar have branches in Munich. You do not need a car in Munich itself. You can get everywhere at almost any time of the day or night by surburban train and underground, tram and bus.

sprachschule_06

Here, too, the language school is ideally situated: traffic junctions such as the Stachus, the main railway station, Sendlinger Tor and the Marienplatz are all within a few minutes’ walking distance.
