Short and Long Term Apartments in Munich
While celebrated as the home of Oktoberfest and BMW, Munich has so much more to offer than that. Its culture is a fusion of traditional and modern (everything from fashion and cuisine to the bizarre local dialects) and the city is a sprawling, stunning mass of impressive buildings.
And with its thriving economy, Munich is a top destination for many business executives and expats. While finding attractive and well-managed short term apartments in Munich used to be a chore, today it’s a breeze with FARAWAYHOME.

While its world-class public transport infrastructure makes it accessible, Munich remains an enormous city. There are a lot of neighborhoods, and apartments for rent in Munich vary significantly in price, proximity to work or school, entertainment, and local amenities.
Particularly for those looking to find a great Munich apartment for rent long term, it’s crucial to identify the right neighbourhood. Short-term apartments in Munich can be a good answer (stay somewhere for a few weeks or months, getting to know the city and your preferences) but to help you get started, here’s a quick overview of some of Munich’s most popular areas.
- Neuhausen is one of the most attractive and wealthy areas in all of Munich. It sits close to the Nymphenburg Palace (which has expansive, free to access, and tranquil grounds) and has a cosy vibe. Residents can access any part of the city with ease, but there are plenty of high-class amenities right there in Neuhausen, too. Ideal Munich accommodation for business executives or expats.
- Situated right on the bank of the Isar River, Haidhausen is extremely popular with professionals. It strikes a great balance between urban - with diverse cuisine and bars - and traditional: its location just outside the city centre providing space for jogging and enjoying the outdoors.
- Apartments in Maxvorstadt are not always easy to come by, and are therefore in high demand. This city centre location is well-connected to premium stores, sports centres, bars, and museums, so it’s perfect for active and sociable professionals.
- Representing Munich’s “Old Town”, Bogenhausen offers a wide array of beautiful and luxurious villa apartments. Serenely located close to the English Garden and the Isar, Bogenhausen is particularly popular with older professionals, diplomats, and affluent families.
- Alstadt is a busy and commercial area, brimming with famous sights - such as the Feldherrnhalle memorial - and boutique stores, and surrounded by Baroque and neo-Gothic buildings. It is the beating heart of historical Munich and a beautiful place to visit.
Sightseeing and landmarks in Munich
Munich receives a millions-strong surge of visitors every September for the world-famous Oktoberfest. If you’re living in Munich, this is a must-visit, even just for an afternoon! But Munich is a stunning and invigorating city the rest of the year too. Its numerous historical sights and cultural landmarks could fill several weeks of constant sightseeing.
If your Munich accommodation sits by the Isar river or the English Garden, these are two areas you can escape the bustling city and breathe some clean, fresh air. From famous markets and festivals to simple beer halls, Munich is a city of constant surprises, rich culture, and endless fun.
Eating, Drinking, and Leisure
Nowhere in Europe does a city promote its own local cuisine like Munich! Bavarian cuisine - from fat sausages and gorgeous dumplings to all sorts of locally-brewed beers - is everywhere in the city. Apartments in Munich are never far from a rowdy Wirtshaus with its heavy wooden tables and friendly atmosphere.
Of course there’s no shortage of fine dining experience in Munich, either. From Restaurant 181’s panoramic views to Schwarz & Weiz (arguably the best traditional Bavarian food in the city) you’ll never go hungry!
Munich’s public transport is typically efficient and effective, as you’d expect from a major German city! While some locals have complained of “delays” with the S-Bahn trains, these are often only a few minutes for long journeys - such are the high German standards!
Travellers only need one travel ticket since it’s valid on all forms of transport. For live travel updates and directions, MMV is a great app.
