Home to nearly 1.5 million inhabitants, Munich is Germany’s third largest city. The fact that it is always a frontrunner when it comes to worldwide rankings for quality of life is no surprise.
It is not just its commercial success and its status as one of the most importance financial centres in the world that make the city an attractive place to live, but also its low crime rate, high number of universities, major museums and theatres, charming city image with its imposing buildings and the English Garden, as well as its prime location between the Starnberger See, Ammersee and Chiemsee. The city’s cosy, typically southern German way of living and its world-famous Oktoberfest only add to the well-being of its inhabitants and visitors.
There is no shortage of attractive city districts when it comes to purchasing a property. Lehel, for example, which was once a poorer suburban quarter, today is the proud home of a museum district, the English Gardens, and many famous monuments. The luxurious Neuhausen-Nymphenburg, the Bohemian quarter of Schwabing with the busy Leopoldstrasse, and Bogenhausen with its villas are popular residential areas. A little outside the city in the classy Grünwald im Isartal, you will find one of the most exclusive residential districts in Germany, boasting villas, properties in historic buildings, and new builds.
