Where to Shop in Munich, Germany

Serious stationery shops, clean-cut magazine emporiums and hip clothing stores that champion homegrown labels: this is our go-to guide for retail therapy in Munich.

The shop floor of A Kind of Guise


A Kind of Guise

Run by super-cool couple Yasar Ceviker and Susi Streich, who met at Munich's Academy of Fashion and Design, this softly-hued shop stocks their own Made In Germany label - a capsule of streamlined garments in autumnal tones - alongside other Munich-based brands that adhere to their locally produced ethos. We bought moss-green sunglasses and a well-cut trench coat, inspired by the seemingly effortless aesthetic of the city's professional crowd.

Literatur Moths

Peruse a carefully curated selection of contemporary literature, magazines and art and design books at this award-winning independent bookshop, which pairs its edgy catalogue with a chiselled shop-floor aesthetic inspired by Eastern design. Harsh daylight is softened by washi paper coverings over windows, artworks hang on the walls, elegantly whittled ladders are on hand to provide access to hard-to-reach upper shelves, and the books themselves are arranged with room to breathe on pale-wood planks. Keep an eye on the website while you're in town - the store hosts regular readings and exhibitions in conjunction with the city's cultural council, too.
