With the famous Ludwig-Maximilian University, Schwabing is home to many students, bookworms and those, who love a multicultural and laid-back lifestyle. This popular district offers a welcome respite from the tourist and business masses of the city centre. Its streets offer a great variety of bookstores, record and antique shops, boutiques, pubs and cafes. North of the University just behind the Siegestor Schwabing´s main strip, Leopold street, offers many bars, night clubs, and invites to just sit and relax in one of the numerous cafes with outdoor seating. Here you can experience the typical Munich atmosphere when strolling along the street on warm summer nights or enjoying the calm and refreshing nature of the English Garden, that can be easily accessed from here.
