This is the Munich branch of the upscale department store chain that was established in Cologne during the late 19th century. It came to Munich in 1972 and is one of the largest stores in town, on five floors in a building on the city's historic square. Wander freely among displays that are art forms in their own right. You'll find men's, women's, and children's clothing; housewares; groceries; and virtually everything else you might think of. It's open Monday to Friday 9am to 6:30pm (Thurs until 8:30pm), and Saturday 8:30am to 2pm. There's a smaller branch of this emporium at Karlsplatz 2 (tel. 089/5-12-50; U-Bahn: Karlsplatz) that maintains the same hours.
