- Located a short walk from the Marienplatz, Fünf Höfe is a modern shopping arcade opened in March 2003. Once used as a Munich's central banking district, the area is now a popular center for shopping and houses major book stores, restaurants, cafés, art galleries, office space and residential apartments. The area has five connected courtyards designed by architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron of Basel. The exotic plants, well-maintained spaces and lighting makes the place very lively and welcoming. Zara, Dolce & Gabbana, Ludwig Beck, Emporio Armani and Marc O'Polo are some of the major designer stores in Fünf Höfe. Store hours vary.
