Schwan Locke | Exploring
Welcome to Isarvorstadt: your new home in Munich. Just minutes from the site of Oktoberfest, and with the vibrant, buzzing neighbourhood of Glockenachviertel to explore, it’s the perfect base.
There’s more to Munich than bratwurst and beer (although it’s not a bad place to start). With our insider tips, you’ll discover the best of our neighbourhood – pretty streets, global eateries, independent shops, bars and clubs. We also have our own coffee shop and cocktail bar, as well as an artisan pantry on site.
Stein of beer? Large Merlot? Or a classic cocktail? Whatever your tipple, our bar and outdoor courtyard are open for drinking and clinking from morning to night.
There’s also a menu of light snacks – perfect for pre-dinner nibbles before you head out to explore Munich’s restaurant scene.
Start the day with fresh coffee and pastries. Grab a sandwich or salad to eat on the go. Or stock up on essentials with the out-of-hours pantry.
Our coffee shop is open for light bites, lunches and cakes. Your terrace or mine?
