5 of the most curious shops in Munich
1) Medical Art & More
The owner is a medical illustrator. She works on assignments in her shop, while also selling fun, bizarre and high-quality medicine-themed products including anatomical models, as well as the craziest gimmicks like skull bakeware, eye erasers, and a porcelain vessel resembling a brain.
2) Ariane Laue Kunsthandel –Raum für Objekte
‘A space for objects’. The translation of the shop’s name says it all. This art shop specialises in handicraft treasures up to the 19th century. Ariane Laue is an interior designer, and likes to stage her selection of objects, establishing unusual relationships between them.
