Schwabing and Maxvorstadt

Some of the finest museums in Europe are in lower Schwabing and Maxvorstadt, particularly in the Kunstareal (Art Quarter). Schwabing, the former artists' neighborhood, is no longer quite the bohemian area where such diverse residents as Lenin and Kandinsky were once neighbors, but the cultural foundations of Maxvorstadt are immutable. Where the two areas meet, in the streets behind the university, life hums with a creative vibrancy. The difficult part is having time to see it all.
