To the west of the city is one of the oldest and most traditional neighborhoods of Munich: Neuhausen. It lies in the immediate vicinity of Maxvorstadt, Schwabing and Nymphenburg and reaches out quite far to the North. The area is popular with the wealthy and young professionals who have a substantial disposable income – but this is not a very distinguishing criteria in Munich.
Along Nymphenburgerstraße and around the vibrant community center at Rotkreuzplatz characterized by Wilhelminian residential and commercial buildings, the neighboorhood is the most preferred. In the quiet side streets renovated buildings and multi-family homes from the interwar period dominate. To the direction of Maxvorstadt and Schwabing, along the Schwere-Reiter-Straße, modern residential complexes with green areas are currently constructed on land that was before covered by barracks. To the south, direction Donnersbergerstraße, extensive railway settlements were built during the industrialization, which are now converted to apartments of the semi-public housing cooperative. Their neighboorhood is dominated by wide-ranging housing estates from the interwar period.
In the north of Neuhausen is Gern, another area of expensive townhouses near the "Royal" Deer Garden, a 40-hectare park with game preserving 150-year-old trees and Munich's largest and most beautiful beer garden.
A disadvantage of the district is the high traffic as the feeder road to the A8 and the Landshuter Allee separate the district through its entire length.
In former times, craftsmen lived and worked in Neuhausen. Nowadays it has in fact become something of an 'in' area in which mainly students, artists and those who really like to enjoy life have set up a shop or at least would very much like to. The center of the district life is the Rotkreuzplatz. Every Thursday there is a farmer's market and cafes, pubs and restaurants are located around the square and in the side streets. Throughout the district, there are countless shopping venues: from exclusive small shops, service providers and retailers of all types to large discount stores and department stores. You will find restaurants of all nationalities which also symbolize the cosmopolitan attitude of its citizens. Antique collectors and bargain hunters often strike gold in the smaller shops too. For those who still aren’t satisfied: Close by is the OEZ (Olympia Einkaufszentrum), the largest shopping centre in Bavaria.
Furthermore, Neuhausen is very close to Munich’s Nymphenberg Palace and its beautiful garden grounds which provide a paradise for dog-walkers, runners and recreational cyclists. A landmark is also the former Olympique stadium, which unfortunately is not used much because the architect did not allow necessary adjustments which the well-known football club FC Bayern München requested. And yet another superlative: The biggest beer garden in the world can be found in Hirschgarten, Neuhausen.
Neuhausen location on the original route of the S-Bahn ensures a quick connection to the city center. Three subway stations and several tram and bus lines also ensure optimal infrastructural connection.
