Stiftsbogen (Shrofelhofstrasse), Munich, Germany – 96%

Resident’s Review of Stiftsbogen in Munich

“A very relaxing and calm residential locality in Munich, ideal for students, elderly and families. Close to Haderner Stern U-bahn station. Plenty of outdoor seating, and even spaces for barbequeing.

“Here is a video showing a typical room in Studentenwerk Stiftsbogen. The quality of construction is immaculate. It is commendable how one can find affordable student accommodation in an expensive city like Munich”

  • Where to Stay: Hall of Residence, or an AirBnB in one of the beautiful homes/dorms. There are a few hotels within 1 km radius of Stiftsbogen. 
  • Where to Eat: Mehlfeld’s Restaurant for German fares, Ben Thanh Asia (both in Haderner Stern). There used to be a good Greek restaurant as well, which seems to be shut now!

    Eco-friendly and sustainable landscaping at Stiftsbogen. The housing complex had only natural boundaries and no walls!

Review of Stiftsbogen:

“A very relaxing and calm residential locality in Munich, ideal for students, elderly and families. Beautiful pathways and walkways amidst trees and greenery. Plenty of outdoor seating, and even spaces for barbequeing. The rooms were quite new, bathrooms sparkling clean. Common kitchen and laundromat were well-equipped. Plenty of Bicycle parking spaces and organized garbage disposal.

The place is just a 10 minutes walk from Haderner Stern U-bahn/Metro. Edeka superstore, Penny store, mobile and print shop, a couple of restaurants, and many other utility shops like tailor/grocery/bakery/fresh fruit shop were closeby. The market complex boasted of pharmacy, printing shops and dry cleaning. Even a public library and Asian specialty food stores were there. Mehlfeld restaurant provides good breakfast. 

Every Saturday, an outdoor market would be put up where we could buy plenty of value-for-money items like clothes, food, plants, etc. Street artists would be performing on Saturday evenings though on Sundays the shops would be closed.”
