Schwabing Tour
Hop on Hop off München

Discover the stylish trendy district of Schwabing on a bus tour with Hop On Hop Off system. From the Hauptbahnhof, you will pass the most important sights in the north of Munich within an hour on the red double-decker bus - and if you wish, you can explore the highlights by walking at six stops.

Schwabing Tour im roten Doppeldecker

We run the Schwabing tour every two hours during the week. On weekends as well as on holidays our buses run hourly on the blue line.

Sights on the Schwabing Tour

The Schwabing tour starts at the Hauptbahnhof (H1). Our friendly bus driver welcomes you cordially at his red double-decker bus. Find a seat on the upper deck or enjoy the highlights of Schwabing on the bus in case of bad weather.

Tip: Many sights on the Schwabing tour are on the right side.

On the way to the Odeonsplatz (H2) we make a side trip to the Promenadeplatz. There you will have the opportunity to take photos of three statues out of the bus: you will see the bronze statue of Lorenz von Westenrieder, the Orlando di Lasso statue and in the center the monument to Elector Maximilian Emanuel. The next equestrian statue (Maximilian I) is waiting for you a stone’s throw from Odeonsplatz at Wittelsbacherplatz. In winter, you can enjoy Glühwein (mulled wine) and Bratwurst (fried sausage) at the Christmas market in a wonderful ambience in front of the magnificent palace.

Englischer Garten München
Colorful autumn idyll in the English Garden in Munich.

On Ludwigstraße, a royal street with magnificent buildings, the route passes the Bavarian State Library and Ludwig Maximilian University at the Siegestor. Feel free to leave us for a few hours at the Thiemestraße bus stop for an extended walk through Munich’s green lung: the Englischer Garten (H11). At the Chinese Tower, a beer garden offers just the right amenities for physical well-being, while children can let off steam at one of the many playgrounds.

Among the sights worth seeing in the 375-hectare public green space there are a Japanese teahouse, the former Rumfordschlössl officers’ casino, the Stone Bank and the Monopteros – a round temple in the classical Greek style. Nature lovers won’t miss out either: the park, modeled on English landscape gardens, is crisscrossed by streams. Rent a boat and paddle across Lake Kleinhesseloh!

Just a five-minute ride away, plenty of culinary specialties lurk at the Leopoldstrasse/Hohenzollernstrasse intersection (H12): Bars and delicious cuisine from all over the world, from Afghan and Ethiopian to Lebanese and Mexican, will make gourmets’ hearts beat faster. In addition, a wide variety of retailers from decor stores to clothing stores to grocery stores attract visitors with their exquisite selection.

Once again, we pass the Siegestor, the heart of Schwabing (H13) on the magnificent Leopoldstrasse. During the bus ride you will find out with our audio guide why the historic triumphal arch was built.

Alte Pinakothek München
Alte Pinakothek in Munich - filled to the brim with art.

Art and culture enthusiasts will fully get their money’s worth at the last stop, Pinakotheken (H14). The Alte Pinakothek houses European art, while the Pinakothek der Moderne focuses on architecture, design and graphics from the 19th and 20th centuries.

You won’t find modern art from Miro to Warhol here – but next door at Museum Brandhorst. In the historic museum Die Neue Sammlung, industrial design gets the attention it deserves. The Staatliche Museum Ägyptischer Kunst does not revive the pharaohs, but their artifacts. The Museum Mineralogia shines a light on precious stones, the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlung on paintings, and the Architekturmuseum of the Technische Universität München – well, you can guess.

If you stroll a few streets down, the gates to even more art and history will be opened to you: Ancient sculptures await interested visitors in the Glyptothek, and you can admire Greco-Roman statues in the Museum für Abgüsse Klassischer Bildwerke. The traces of the First and Second World War are brought closer to you in the NS-Documentation Center. Finally, the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Boniface attracts history lovers not only because of the monastery’s Byzantine architecture, but also because of the tombs of King Ludwig I and his wife.

Passing the Old Botanical Garden, the red double-decker bus arrives back at the main station after an hour’s ride.
