*Altstadt (Old City, map). The city centre with a pedestrian zone that is one big shopping street, and the majority of Munich’s most famous travel sights around Marienplatz (map).
*Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt (map). Night-life area immediately south of the centre, home to many cafés, restaurants, bars, clubs and theatres, hotels and hostels, and the focal point of Munich’s gay scene.
