At the Sedanstrasse in the Haidhausen district

Strolling along: Haidhausen

The Haidhausen district in the east of Munich is playful and utterly idyllic. Many of its squares rank among the most beautiful in Munich. This area of the city is not only home to a number of little family-run shops, but also to the Maximilianeum, the seat of the Bavarian state parliament.

The life of Riley

This, Munich’s illustrious French quarter, reminds visitors of the city’s warm friendship with its neighbouring country. Not far from Sedanstraße, lovers of French cuisine will find several excellent restaurants – such as Atelier Gourmet at no. 37 Rablstraße, the Chez Fritz brasserie at 20 Preysingstraße or crêperie Bernard et Bernard at no. 32, inner Wiener Straße.


Negroni Bar, No. 9

The Big Apple, with a spritz of Bella Italia: The Negroni brings the charms of an American bar to the district – you’ll find the namesake Italian aperitif made with gin, vermouth and campari on the cocktail menu, along with an El Presidente and a Desperate Housewife. If you come with an appetite, prepare for a long night by tucking into some antipasti, bruschetta or tagliolini.


Hubercraft, No. 23

Bavarian dirndls, Sari dirndls, Waschdirndls (traditional, plain cotton dirndls), bridal dirndls, tailor-made dirndls, children’s dirndls, dirndls featuring garden gnomes, Bambi and toadstools – not to mention knick-knacks, odds and ends, souvenirs and a little café with confectionery tarts and toasted sandwiches. Even the furniture and decor are for sale here!


Cigarette machines, No. 20, 23, 34

Smokers and cigarette machines are both dying out. The tobacco lobby is not happy about this – and nor are fully-fledged serious smokers. There are three cigarette machines to be found on this street.


Café im Hinterhof, No. 29

You can get a continental breakfast anywhere. But you can only have weisswurst with pretzels in Munich! The chef in the Hinterhof café comes from Sri Lanka and augments the extensive breakfast menu every weekend, with a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast of fresh flatbread (Roti), coconut (pol) and homemade, spicy Sambal.


Kinderlein kommet, No. 11

Mama! Look at this! Yes, take a look inside the little “Peanut Store” boutique, and browse the lovingly selected range of products for childrens’ bedrooms, children’s enjoyment and the next children’s party – from cloud lamps to feather garlands.
