The best Airbnbs in Munich

Not as cosmopolitan as Berlin (and way less boisterous than Hamburg), Munich is often unjustly disregarded as a worthwhile destination. This 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? Check.

Best Munich Airbnbs

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.

Big city life too much? Located just minutes (try 150m) from Lake Starnberg, this stunning Airbnb Plus home has all you need for a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle. Just 50 minutes from the Munich International Airport, this lakehouse offers guests designer beds, vintage furniture, a smart TV – complete with DVD player, hello 2010 – a sound system and a gorgeous private terrace decked out in outdoor seating. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking up a storm and the overall vibe just whispers 'relax'. And breathe. Your holiday starts now.

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.

With two bedrooms, one of which contains three separate beds, this place is suitable for any large family 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.

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 around 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 within walking distance. What could be better?

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 of 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.

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.
