City Overview

Munich is the capital of the federal state Bavaria and considered wealthiest major city in Germany which is clearly visible in its retail markets. Several of Munich’s inner city highstreets account for the most prominent expansion targets in Germany: Marienplatz and Kaufingerstrasse lie at the heart of the retail market. Munich’s Maximilianstrasse is one of the most important luxury locations in Germany. Historic flair in the inner city retail areas and attractive new schemes play an important role for tourism, too. Furthermore, Munich is equipped with some very strong shopping centers, e.g. Olympia Einkaufszentrum and pep as well as Fünf Höfe, a premium shopping passage, which add up to the high street setting.

Munich’s wealth is based upon the city’s function as seat of local governments of Bavaria and depending sectors as well as several headquarters of Germany’s most important firms like Siemens, BMW, Allianz and others. Tourists not only enjoy the rich cultural heritage, English gardens and Bavarian traditional art of brewery, but also the proximity to the Alps and the respective recreational regions.
