Very 21st-century in feel, very upmarket in merchandise
Innovative and cool
In the city centre just a few paces from Odeonplatz, this modern shopping arcade (whose name means "Five Courts") is a fairly new addition which takes up many of the façades along one of Munich's most important commercial boulevards, Theatinerstrasse. It's one of the city's most significant examples of modern architecture, designed by the prestigious firm of Herzon & De Meuron, and set the local bar for contemporary work in the 21st century. In addition to a variety of German and international fashion boutiques, there are seveal fine restaurants, along with the Kunsthalle, one of Germany's leading art exhibition venues.
