The best Airbnbs in Munich

Not as cosmopolitan as Berlin (and a damned sight less raucous than Hamburg) Munich is often unfairly overlooked as a worthwhile destination. Which is a real shame, since Germany’s third-biggest city has a lot going for it, and no, not just the yearly Oktoberfest. In fact, the city is filled with pretty parks, elegant riverside walks, awesome attractions, a highly respectable art scene and, at Christmas, charming markets galore. 

If you’re on the lookout for affordable accommodation, an Airbnb property could well be a better choice than a hotel or B&B. So 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

Munich Airbnbs Maxvorstadt

Studio in Maxvorstadt

This bright and breezy one-bed property is a good one for those who have culture on their to-do list: it’s located Maxvorstadt, a district north of the town centre that’s filled with galleries, museums and other institutions. It’s also where several universities are based, so expect lots of cafés and bars that are popular with students, too.

One-bed apartment with loggia

Another property in Maxvorstadt – and one whose main selling point is the loggia area where visitors can sit back and enjoy the sunshine. (Check out the cute painting of the bloke on the scooter, too!) A pull-out bed in the living area means up to four guests can stay here.

Open plan white living room with contemporary furnishings

Airy two-bed apartment in Schwabing

This medium-sized modern apartment is located at the very top of an apartment in Schwabing, an area that was once Munich’s bohemian quarter (but is considered much more chic now). There’s an open-plan kitchen and living area, a pinball machine, tram links on the doorstep and views of the general neighbourhood that’ll make your visit here more than worthwhile...whatever window you're gazing out of.

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 Two 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 days out.

Homely apartment in Aldstadt

Germany properties more often than not have slick, if sometimes clinical decor. So if you want to stay in a place that has a more cosy and lived-in feel, then this place makes for a great choice. It’s located in Munich’s Old Town, a district filled with winding lanes, churches and medieval squares: a real slice of history. With space enough for two, beautiful parquet flooring and a quiet location, this Airbnb is perfect for a peaceful getaway.

large bright bedroom with desk, art and arched window

Eight-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 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.

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.

living room with contemporary furniture

Fresh apartment by Englischer Garten

Not only is this apartment undeniably wallet-friendly, but it’s trendy, too. The property sleeps two guests, has all of the useful amenities that you could need on a short break and a fantastic view of Englischer Garten. Not only that, it’s located within close range of some must-visit Oktoberfest spots, including Chinese Tower (beer garden) and P1 (club).

Family-friendly apartment in Bogenhausen

With two bedrooms, and one containing 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.

Elegant duplex near Oktoberfest

This two-floor apartment in Maxvorstadt is very close to the Oktoberfest site, so is a good one to consider if you are in town for the annual beer festival. The light coming in from those double-floor windows might have you squinting in the morning when you’re hungover – but it makes for a bright, elegant, inviting property.

wooden interior with winding staircase and many plants

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.
