It is such a great spot for eating and drinking. There is a tremendous amount of variety so the options are almost endless. The local Alt beer is not to be missed.

A great area full of shops and restaurants. A mostly pedestrian area. Adjacent to the River. Easy access to the subway system. Make sure to visit the market area in Carlplatz.

I came here on a Wednesday night and the place was busy. Lots of bars and restaurants with people drinking outside. It was lively but it was a happy relaxed atmosphere. Would be good on a weekend for a few beers 🍺
