Local Color

I’ve talked about Haidhausen many times on this blog, as it’s one of my favorite neighborhoods in Munich. You have an interesting mix between what they called in Paris – BoBo. Slightly bohemian and slightly bourgeois. A strange mix of new and old, as well as artistic yet well off and hip. The area around Leonhard strasse in Haidhausen is a good example of that. In general, it is surrounded by blocks of desirable accommodations, but each street takes a very different flavor. Leonhard Strase, for example, is a back alley, while neighboring Preysingstrasse is filled with cafes, art galleries, and historic buildings. Take a walk around, and find a different look around each corner.
