We love Munich for its balance of old, new and indulgent experiences. Steeped in Bavarian history yet home to some of Germany’s most cutting-edge shopping, the city is also known as the specialty beer capital of the world. To work up a thirst and find spot-on fashion, visit Ingolstadt Village: an outlet boutique shopping haven just outside the city with exclusive price reductions to die for.
Your Stylish City Base
Start your luxurious shopping weekend by checking into the contemporary Anna Hotel. It’s location within the city is ideal: just ten minutes on foot from the city’s central plaza, and steps from the subway and train station, staying here you have easy access to the shopping Village and the incredible beauty of the city’s surrounding Black Forest. From the mood-lit bathrooms, complementary mini-bar, designer wooden furniture and modern art hung on the walls to the enthusiastic staff and street-side café, this is our pick in Munich, and it’s good value too.
Shop Like Royalty
For shopping fit for a prince (yes, royalty from around the world have scoured these boutiques), head to Ingolstadt Village, an easy train ride or 50 minute car journey from Munich’s city centre. Perfect for a glamorous day out of town.
From luxury brands such as Luisa Cerano and Jette, to local designers such as Strenesse (for womenswear), and Bogner (for ski gear): the key here is that everything is at exclusive price reductions. The boutique-lined pedestrianised streets dotted with cafés and Bavarian restaurants are ideal for a whole day of indulgence. Browse the boutiques at your own pace, or hit them hard, to make the most out of the 90 designer outlets here with prices reduced by up to 60% off the recommended retail price. Just the ticket if you’re a fan of premium labels but despair at their normal price tags. And, we’ll give you a VIP Card for even more reductions when you book with us. Time to shop, shop, shop.
To soothe your feet, weary from shopping, we can recommend luxury spas for you in which to totally refresh and unwind. Enjoy a massage or facial overlooking the city from a rooftop spa bed, before donning your new outfits for that all-important night out.
The Black Tomato concierge can point you in the direction of the most cutting edge restaurants (from Michelin stars to trestle tables sharing Weisswurs), or arrange for you to tour Munich’s premier breweries with a beer expert. Learn about hops and the history of local brews as you sip the refreshing, translucent gold Weizenbier.
Once you’ve had a taste of the region (literally), why not visit the surrounding parks and forests for a real breath of fresh air? We can show you where to walk for miles in the nearby Black Forest, through pine trees, past lakes, waterfalls, monasteries and mountains, and the iconic Danube river. If all this sounds like too much hard work, we suggest heading up to an authentic Bavarian castle by helicopter for a feast like never before, and enjoying a horse and carriage ride around a picturesque mountaintop town. Breathe in the pine-scented air and visit local markets before your heli lift back to Munich and your boutique hotel. Simply fairytale perfect.
