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. It’s filled with pretty parks, elegant riverside walks, awesome attractions, a highly respectable art scene and, at Christmas, charming markets galore. And if you’re look for affordable accomodation, an Airbnb property could well be a better choice than a hotel or B&B. We’ve rounded up the best Airbnbs Munich has to offer – take a look below! 

The best Munich Airbnbs

Munich Airbnbs Maxvorstadt

Studio in Maxvorstadt

This elegantly decorated 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.

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.

Airy four-bed studio in Schwabing

This studio apartment is located at the very top of an apartment in Schwabing, an area that was once Munich’s bohemian quarter, but is rather more chic these days. It might be bit of a slog getting up to this seventh-floor property – but the views of the genteel neighbourhood make it more than worthwhile.

Top-floor apartment in Schwabing

Another high-altitude apartment in the same area that we’ve included as it 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 excellents cafés and restaurants nearby, so you won’t be short of places to eat.

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.

Munich Airbnb Marienplatz

Six-capacity 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. Being at the top of the building, with a roof terrace, floods of light gets in. There are two double bedrooms (one with an en suite) and a gallery space where two extra sleepers could potentially fit. The finish is all to the highest spec to boot.

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.

Upscale apartment by Englischer Garten

Frequent Airbnb users will know that a hell of a lot of hosts describe their properties as ’luxury’ – to varying degrees of accuracy. But we think this one truly earns its description: it’s spacious, opulent and filled with high-end furniture and original works of art. And yes, you’ll spending a little more – but spread across four guests, and it’s still incredibly good value.

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.

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.

Two-bed penthouse in Haidhausen

Okay, here’s one if you’re willing to push the boat out. This two-bed penthouse is in the Haidhausen area, once working-class but now rather chi-chi – as this place attests to. From the timber-beamed ceilings to the spacious balcony, this is Munich at its most luxuriös
