large supermarket in Munich - where?

Can someone tell me where in Munich I can find a large supermarket -- and how to reach it from Hotel Uhland by Metro? Previously we have shopped at three smaller markets walking distance from the hotel but I would like to find a larger one with more selection. Thanks.

Ask the lovely people at reception at the Uhland. They will be glad to advise you. There may be a supermarket at the Hauptbahnhof, which is easily reachable by bus. Alternatively, if I remember correctly, the two big department stores (can't remember the names) between the Uhland and the Marienplatz both have supermarkets in the basement.

Hi crckwc1,

You can use google maps to locate nearby supermarkets.

First pull up a map of your hotel in München, then click on the letter in the circle and click on "find nearby." Do a search for these supermarkets:

Rewe
Tangelmann
Feneberg
Edeka

One of them should be fairly close to you.

Have fun!

Hi Travelforbeer,

Sorry, I don't have any information about REAL. I just moved to Garmisch in 2008, and there isn't one here -- I didn't think of them. They may be in München, though.

Here is info from the website www.kaufda.de:

Filiale
in der Nähe von 80336 München
REAL
Machtlfinger Str. 4
81379 München
5,2 km
(089) 78 01 70
Mo-Sa: 07:00-20:00

Not sure how you will get there, as Real is often on the outskirts of towns, but this one is 5.2km away from your postcode. Good luck!

Most of the larger supermarkets such as Real are not easy to get to and quite frankly are not worth the hassle.

The quality and selection of food / clothing etc is pretty poor, and the shopping experience is no way close to what you get in the department stores in the city

Not worth the hassle.
If you want a larger selection of more deli type foods, you can try the food hall of Karstadt department store at the central station.
Otherwise the malls have larger regular supermarkets (and are easy to reach with public transport), i.e. Pasing Arcaden (at Pasing S-Bahn station) and Riem ARcaden (subway line 2 to Messestadt West).

Thanks to each of you, I'm sure I'll find what I need with this list.
