In central München there is a pedestrian zone that goes between Stachus and Marienplatz the distance between both is perhaps less than half a kilometer. Between the two are all kinds of shops and kiosks that will provide you with any kind of souvenir that you may wish. In the past several years the shops are changing along this pedestrian zone. This is a stop for the S-Bahn and Marienplatz is the next stop along the train route.
If you were to be here then to the extreme right of this arch is one of the nicest toy stores in München certainly one of the largest. Coming left from the toy store is Hugendubel book store. If you are interested in any kind of books in many different languages then you should check out this book store. There is another Hugendubel store in Marienplatz also.
There is a game stop in the left side of the arch, but the leather shop was having a going out of business sale in Feb 2010.
You will find many young people hanging out here all year long as this is the place of a McDonald's shop. So you can order your Groß Mac, mit pommes und Kase und ein Pils.
This pedestrian zone has also several museums and churches. St. Michaels which is perhaps four hundred meters down on the left is the burial place of Ludwig II the builder of Neuschwanstein castle. There are also several famous fountains along this walkway.
