Maxvorstadt joins between Odeonsplatz and Stachus directly to the northwestern sector of the Old City and is bounded on the east by the Englischer Garten, in the north it borders Schwabing, in the northwest of Neuhausen-Nymphenburg, its southwestern tip touches the district Schwanthalerhoehe, and in the south is the area Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt. The eastern parts of the Maxvorstadt are often attributed erroneously Schwabing.
History and Description:
The Maxvorstadt was (phone number hidden) under the first Bavarian King Maximilian I Joseph, after whom it is also called, designed as the first planned extension of town, it was built mostly after 1825 Ludwig I in the classical style. Today mostly so obtained is the Richard -Wagner-Straße with The State School of Applied Arts, now the Bavarian State Collection for Palaeontology and Geology. First, the Ludwig street from the Feldherrenhalle was applied to the Siegestor. The boundary of the old town is marked roughly by the Briennerstraße. West of the Ludwigstraße a rectangular road network has been created. This district encompasses the Wittelsbacher-, Karolinen- and Königsplatz.
The district has an above-average number of facilities for cultural and artistic area, many of the important museums and collections of the city as Old and New Pinakothek, Lenbachhaus with Kunstbau, National Graphic Arts Collection, Glyptothek and antiques collection, Museum of Church Art in Georgianum and the Academy of Fine Arts and the Academy of Music and Theatre are located here. With the opening of the Pinakothek der Moderne in 2002 and the Museum Brandhorst in 2009, more cultural and urban highlights were added.
Many educational institutions such as the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, the Technical University, the Universities of Politics and Philosophy, University of Applied Sciences, the Historical School, the Orff Centre, the State and University Library and the State and City Archives are the Maxvorstadt, why it is often referred to as the "brains of Munich". Also, have important headquarters of banks, insurance companies, corporations and utilities based here, as well as the Bayerische Rundfunk, the state police, a large part of the Munich tax offices and courts, as well as the Spaten-Löwenbräu Group.
The concentration of jobs and the high number of students (more than 100,000) mean that reside in the district during the day almost four times more people than actually live there. The Maxvorstadt especially around the universities and the Academy of Art a typical academic and student area, much of what characterizes the typical "Schwabing-image" actually belongs to Maxvorstadt. Among the residents dominated the age group of 20 to 30 year-olds, while children withdraw numerically under 15 and elderly. Above average, the proportion of single-person households. Many famous people have lived in the Maxvorstadt, for example, Georg Elser, Thomas Mann, Franz von Stuck, Wolfgang Pauli, Franz Josef Strauss, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Ratzinger.

Likewise, here, at the tram lines (phone number hidden) and 28 as well as several bus lines MVG.
I met with Bjoern's assistant to collect the keys on our arrival. It was easy to connect with him by phone and arrange the mtg. He helped us up with our bags, let us in and kindly spent a good amount of time describing the neighborhood and making recommendations. Very easy key pick up. There is an elevator which is helpful if you are tired of carrying your bags up staircases :)
The apmt itself is as pictured, very cute and clean. It is also quiet and the bed is large so you can spread out.
The bathroom is small and efficient. Water pressure and temperature was quite nice.
The apmt is in a college town so there are many people out and about as well as a good selection of cafes in walking distance to choose from.
The neighborhood has parking though you may have to hunt around for it. We returned our rental car and utilized the tram and the subway system. There is also a taxi stand less than 5 minutes away.
Overall, it was a nice stay and we could see that Bjoern has gone to some trouble to make it welcoming. :)
The apartment is exactly as described. It is small, but very bright and in a good location to see a lot of sights. Be aware that there is no sink in the small kitchenette. Bjoern's friend, Christian was very helpful.
We stayed at this apartment for 4 days in early June 2015. The location was ideal for exploring the city and was immaculately presented. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was very good. The apartment is not large but is fine for a short break for 2 people. The wifi is not the fastest but this was not a major issue. Christian, the housekeeper, was very helpful especially on arrival and some difficulty in getting the key. He was also available to answer any and all questions. Overall a great experience and I would definitely recommend this listing for any visitor to Munich.
The apartment was very clean and in a really great neighborhood for site seeing and eating. It was a very quiet and pleasant area of the city! We had a hard time communicating with the host for checkout times and directions because we did not have phones and he was out of town. But, all considering he was very nice and easy going. Munich was a very fun city, definitely worth it to go and this apartment is a great place to stay while you're there.
A nice little place in a brilliant location for the museum district, the English Garden and the historic centre. It was easy to find and the arrangements for getting in etc were simple and convenient.
