Sightseeing: A tour through Bogenhausen
Living in the middle of the city in a stately villa with an adjacent park and its own beach? That’s also possible in Munich. And you don’t even have to be of blue blood to do it, although it helps immensely if you belong to the moneyed aristocracy. The highest density of villas in the city is to be found in the Bogenhausen district. This is the district north of Prinzregentenstrasse, which for decades has been the favorite neighborhood of celebrities – along with Grünwald – and has correspondingly high real estate prices. This is where society meets at the “Käfer” delicatessen counter or at the noble restaurant Aquarello in Mühlbauer Straße, goes out to the Prinzregenten Theater in the evening or visits one of the city’s celebrities during a walk through the old cemetery of St. Georg: Fassbinder, Eichinger, Sedlmayr and Helmut Fischer are buried here.
Alt-Bogenhausen: Historic apartment buildings & baroque architecture
Alt-Bogenhausen not only inspires with its many monuments, churches and historical sights. The most beautiful old buildings and monuments of the city are also at home here. For example, the magnificent old mansions in the classicist and baroque style of past centuries can be found along Maria-Theresia-Straße and Ismaninger Straße. They are among the most sought-after properties in the city.
