Not as cosmopolitan as Berlin (and way less boisterous than Hamburg), Munich is often unjustly disregarded as a worthwhile destination. Which is just flat out wrong, since Germany’s third-biggest city has a lot going for it, and no, not just the yearly Oktoberfest (although that looks like a right laugh). In fact, the city is filled with lovely parks, beautiful riverside walks, remarkable attractions, a highly reputable art scene and, at Christmas, charming markets aplenty. 

If you’re hunting for an affordable place to stay, an Airbnb property is likely a better choice than a hotel or B&B. Lucky for you, we’ve done the hard work for you and rounded up some of the best Airbnbs Munich has to offer. Passports, packed.

The best Munich Airbnbs

Top-floor apartment in Schwabing

This high-altitude apartment isn’t far from Luitpoldpark, a pretty little 33-acre park that features a monument to World War II made up the rubble of bombed buildings. There are plenty of excellent cafés and restaurants nearby, so you won’t be short of places to eat. Good thing too, because sightseeing will have you more than peckish by the time the day’s out.

One-bed apartment in a three-star hotel

Another property in Maxvorstadt – and one whose main selling point is the fact that it’s hidden away in a rather charming little hotel. (Check out the restaurant – you won’t even have to make your own dinner). Another plus is that you can use all of the hotel’s amenities and parking spaces are available – if you’re bringing your wagon.

Eight-person-capacity art loft near Marienplatz

Although this loft is slap bang in the centre of Munich, it offers a bit of peace and quiet away from all that. In fact, not only does the apartment look stylish, but it’s also situated above an art gallery. There are four bedrooms, six beds and contemporary decor. Plus, since this space is at the top of the building, with a roof terrace, light floods in. Bring on the AM.

This is one of those places that will give you a dilemma. Stroll five minutes into town to experience the museums and exhibitions on offer right round the corner, or stay forever in this beautiful apartment because it’s just that nice? Obviously, you’re going to want to do a bit of both. And this is the perfect place for it. Two decked-out suntrap terraces, huge French windows, and everything you need in walking distance. What could be better?

Inviting apartment near the train station

Travelling into Munich by train? No worries: there are plenty of Airbnb properties dotted around the Hauptbahnhof. This one’s a little further afield, but we included it as it’s so nicely decorated and furnished with lots of lovely houseplants. Art lovers, take note: it isn’t far from either of the much-respected Pinakothek galleries.

If you’re looking for a space in the thick of it all, this place should tick your boxes. The flat features a bed and a sofa bed so it’s suitable for groups, and is right at the heart of Munich’s trendy Glockenbach district, so you can step out to a whole array of choices for eating, drinking, shopping, and clubbing. As it’s directly on the Gärtnerplatz, this area is always lively.

Family-friendly apartment in Bogenhausen

With two bedrooms, one of which contains three separate beds, this place is suitable for any large families visiting Munich. It’s located in an art nouveau building in Bogenhausen, an area just east of the river filled with similarly picturesque buildings. On a budget? No probs – this Airbnb comes at fraction of the cost of a hotel, so you’ll have plenty of cash left for currywurst.

Upscale attic in the heart of Munich

You can find way more than the average hotel on Airbnb, and this apartment proves that spectacularly. It’s bright, airy and full to the brim with plants; enough to make any green-fingered holidaymaker drool. Besides that, the spot looks unusual, with wooden features protruding from each corner like an indoor treehouse. The loft sleeps six guests and is only a short distance away from Oktoberfest, the Transport Museum and Fair Park.

This neatly decorated flat in Munich is in a great location in Schwabing, which is known for having a whole host of high-end boutiques, wine bars and fine dining (and generally just being pretty cool). If you’re looking to stroll around Munich in a long coat and sunglasses with your significant other before laying your head somewhere equally fancy, this is the place.

This central spot for one is in a prime location for boozing, eating and shopping. But the real treat is the apartment itself. This light and airy flat has huge French windows and a terraced balcony where you can look out across Munich, and is beautifully furnished. It also has a piano, if that appeals to you.
