Located in the heart of Munich

The Hotel Opéra is located in central Munich, a few steps away from almost everything which makes Munich lovable and worth seeing. The hotel is located in the exclusive borough of Lehel old town, right behind the Government of Upper Bavaria.Only 50 meters from the Maximilian Strasse, Munich's boulevard.

Maximilianstraße, Munich's most exclusive shopping area.

The Hotel Opéra is located in a small quiet side-straße of the Maximilian Strasse, one of the most beautiful shopping straßes in the world. Here, even just looking is fun. You will find all the top brands in the world.Gucci, Armani, Jil Sander, Salvatore Ferraggamo, Kiton, Polo Ralph Lauren, Dior, Bulgari, Hermes, Bottega Veneta, Zenga, Bartu, Montclaire, Dolce & Gabbana, Etro, Louis Vuitton, Wempe, Omega, Officina Panerai, Hemmerle.

A little further up, the pedestrian zone begins with all the usual stores and brands.


The Hofbräuhaus is probably one of the most famous sights of Munich. Famous for its beer and atmosphere, it is always worth stopping by for a visit. The Hofbräuhaus is also located on a side straße of the Maximilianstraße and is approximately a 5 minute walk away. Our tip: beware of the strength of the beer. (But the walk back is not far, thank God)

Marienplatz - city centre

From the Hotel Opéra, it is a 10 minute walk to Marienplatz. A nice walk down the Maximilianstraße to the opera and then only a few steps through the pedestrian zone, past the delicatessen store Dallmayer (a very worthwhile visit) and you're already there. Tip: At 11:00 a.m. the chimes at Marienplatz begin. A sight that is hardly ever missed by Munich visitors

The Residenz, the CuvilleTheatre , the Schatzkammer, the Hofgarten

If you stroll down the Maximilianstraße to the Opera and Max-Joseph platz, you'll find the residence of the Bavarian kings on your right. It was the residence of the Bavarian kings, Max-Joseph I, Ludwig I, II and MaxJosph as well as the most famous, Ludwig II, known as the fairytale king. Magnificent rooms await you here. The Antiquarium, the Brunnenhof and the Schatzkammer are all very worthwhile visits. The Cuvilletheatre is a real gem. Unfortunately, it's not always open.After so much Royal splendor, a little rest in the Hofgarten is highly recommended .This beautiful garden is a place of rest and relaxation.


Munich's famous Viktualienmarkt can be thought of as the belly of the city. Here, you will find lots of treats that will delight the palate. Our tip: take a walk in good weather across the market and in the small beer garden in the centre of the market you can enjoy a classical Munich 10:00 a.m. breakfast of a few white sausages, a pretzel and a White beer (Weissbier).

The English Garden and the river Isar

For the nature lover, the nearby English Garden and the river Isar offers wonderful opportunities to relax and walk around. The English Garden is the largest urban park in the world. When the sun is shining, it's a real paradise. The Munich locals and tourists flock to the garden, to take a break, play sports, walk, hang around or just to relax. Our tip: A beautiful destination is the Chinese Tower with its famous beer garden or the small Klein-Hessseloher lake with the Seehaus beer garden. It's very nice it is to rent one of the small rowboats and float across the lake with a loved one.

The Deutsche Museum

The largest technical museum in the world. You can spend days, months, or even years here. An attraction for both young and old. Our tip: visit the mine and walk through the coal mine. Also, the electricity and the toy train exhibitions are well worth seeing. It's best to find out for yourself which section you find the most fascinating. P.S.: Do not miss the spectacular planetarium.

The "Völkerkundemuseum" (Museum of Ethnology)

Directly beside the hotel is in a remarkable building, the Ethnological Museum . Interesting and unusual exhibitions are constantly being shown.

The "Haus der Kunst" (The House of Art)

At the beginning of the English Garden, about 3 minutes away by foot, is the Haus der Kunst. The mighty building from the time of National Socialism is one of the top destinations for art lovers. It's here, that the curator Chris Dercon, stages exhibitions at a top international level that both interesting and extremely appealing to the public.

The Bayerische Nationalmuseum (The Bavarian National Museum)

200 meters away from the Haus der Kunst, is the Bavarian National Museum. Here, those who prefer it quiet can browse through treasures from Bavaria's past.
