Makers Bible München


A city with many faces and as many clichés. But Munich is first of all refreshingly green. The banks of the Isar, the parks and beer gardens never let this concrete jungle feeling of other metropolises come up. Compared to other European cities, the city also has a very high density of educational and cultural institutions. Munich embodies a livable mixture of tradition and tolerance, hard work and leisure. Cheers to that!

The year 2020, when the idea for this book – our first guide in the Makers Bible Guide series – was born, is a very special one. After all, the time of the lockdown has shown what is really important. First and foremost, these are small collectives: the family and the community of “the village”, which in Munich stands metaphorically for the individual districts. Consuming locally may also mean contributing to the organic continuity of the neighbourhood.

Munich is a city of diversity, in every respect: the people who live here and their backgrounds, the businesses of the big city, whose diversity is based equally on tradition and new ideas, and last but not least, the geographical interplay of the individual districts form the big and whole, namely the “beautiful city on the banks of the Isar”.

If you are not already there: Travel to Munich and discover the best places to local and handmade quality. To good food and outstanding hosts, places to shop, discover and simply enjoy. Very much off the beaten track.
