Munich - Souvenirs

Munich is a very popular tourist destination, and as such there are several places to buy a wide range of souvenirs. Other than the typical souvenirs such as cheap merchandise including T-shirts and fridge magnets with the word 'Munich' printed on them, and snow domes, there are many quality German goods to buy. These include cuckoo clocks, beer mugs and beer glasses, wooden toys including nutcrackers, music boxes and things called 'Pyramides' which are generally Christmas scenes that revolve due to the heat of candles placed around their base. You can even buy a 'Dirndl' or a pair of 'Lederhosen' so you can go home looking like a true Bavarian.

The places where you can buy souvenirs include cheap stalls along Kaufingerstr between Karlsplatz and Marienplatz, where you can buy T-shirts, postcards and mostly tacky souvenirs. Department stores, stationery stores and the tourist office also sell a small range of souvenirs. Max Krug and Herrmann are both located at Neuhauserstr 2, and sell quality clocks, nutcrackers and of course beer glasses and mugs.
For metal goods and ceramics (including a number of religious icons) go to the Alte Peterkirche. Opposite the entrance to the lookout tower you will find Schnitzereien Zinn and Geschenke Kaiser.

For ethnic clothing such as 'Lederhosen' and 'Dirndl', try Wallach on the corner of Hofgraben and Residenzstr, Ludwig Beck or Hertie. There are also discount stores around Tal. Around Oktoberfest time these clothes become very popular and therefore even more expensive.
