Hey guys, I'll be in Munich for 2 weeks during my summer vacation. Do you guys have any recommendations on where to shop and eat? I'd love to know where quaint little cafes are, where I can spend a whole day reading a book without getting disturbed as well as where the best shopping places are.

Thanks in advance.

^ Thanks so much. I'm looking for multi-label shops, something like Colette in Paris. They don't have to be that high-end though. And I'd like to know a great place to get really cheap jewelley like flea markets. Oh, and do you happen to know any store which stocks Vanessa Bruno?

Thanks so much!

a multi-label shop would be ludwig beck, it's also very central (marienplatz)..
could be that serie a stocks vanessa bruno but i'm not sure.
there are at least two regular flea-markets but if you're lucky you will be here when the 'backyard fleamarkets' are taking place, usually some time in june or july in the areas schwabing and glockenbachviertel (which is also where most of the cafes is listed are).

The POOL Shop downstairs at Maximilianstrasse is nice. its very close to ETRO and D&G, in the same building at the left handside of the street starting from the opera.

Some Shoes you could find at BEHRINGER close to "5 Höfe"
they started a special spring sale 4 days ago, but the most of it should be gone.

I lived in Germany last year and when we traveled to Berlin I dragged my host sister to the flea market in the Mauerpark for almost half a day! We loved it. They truly have everything, from independent artists and designers to vintage jewelry and leather. We found so much lovely stuff and you can haggle (of course it helps to speak German, I would recommend to at least know the numbers so you can hear what other people are paying and not get ripped off). I bought my favorite ring - an avant-garde heavy sterling silver one - for 2 euro- it was a really funny story. I asked the Turkish guy selling it how much it was and he said 5 euro, I said 1 because it was bent, and then he said 4 and I said 2 and he gave up He had his Turkish accent and I had my American one and then we talked about soccer for a bit. It's one of my best memories and one of the reasons I just adore Berlin. I swear I'm homesick for it; I only spent two weeks in that city but I'm missing a place that is not actually my home. It's just a magical place, especially the creative energy.

Thank you for the link although I'm back from my trip!

Couldn't agree more on your description of Berlin. There is really no place in the world that apprciates artists as much as Berlin.

I want to go back like now..

(sorry for the off-topic)
