2) Die Bonbon Manufaktur München

Munich’s first modern candy manufactory produces traditional handmade sweets while you look on. On any given Saturday, there may be as many as 30 people outside the shop. They use antique, traditional moulds. As these are no longer produced, the owner was really happy to get hold of some.

3) Kräuterparadies Lindig

This shop has been selling herbs and natural remedies for over 130 years, with more than 500 different herbs and spices contained in the large wooden drums. All the items have been tested for harmful substances. They also have a good selection of natural oils and a tea for when you are suffering from a head cold.

5) Servus.Heimat

This shop sells a nice selection of lovingly-selected souvenirs. Everything is somehow linked to the alpine and Southern German region with useful little items and funny gifts such as ‘weather houses’ or whacky cuckoo clocks. An anti-souvenir shop, really, where locals also like to shop.
