Acerca del barrio
We live in a delightful part of Munich, Schwabing. On one side of our building is Leopoldstrasse, a wide urban boulevard, with shops and tall buildings. On the other side, the neighborhood is like a small town, with single family homes and lovely little gardens. Three major parks are within 15 minutes walk: Luitpold Park, Ungererbad & the Central Park of Munich, the Englische Garten. Ungererbad, which is right across the boulevard, is an outdoor 'Volksbad.' In other words, a place for public swimming, with four swimming pools, volley ball, trampolines, a small beer garden and more, all accessible for a token amount, all in a beautiful park setting. There is on-street parking in the neighborhood, but like most urban centers, it can be problematic.
