Blogs & Coffee Munich: Design Fun Part Two

March 13, 2013 1


Ten days ago I invited 30 German lifestyle bloggers to Munich for a weekend full of fun, design, shopping and networking. Last week I covered the first part of our ‘Blogs & Coffee’ weekend HERE, today I want to share the rest of our discoveries with you.

As one of three hosts it was my duty to scout nice and cool locations in Munich in order to present the Bavarian capital as a thriving design hub in southern Germany. But let me take you step by step on our blogger tour. 

Saturday afternoon was reserved for discovering some of my favorite interior design stores and cafés in the lively Glockenbach quarter. First, I took my blogger friends to my favorite boutique ‘Ladoug’. This is a real gem in downtown Munich. Small, intimate, full of beautifully curated homewares, mostly vintage and handcrafted, scouted by the charming owner Andrea Douglas. Not only will you dive into a dreamy world when entering the boutique, but the owner will also tell you one or two anecdotes from her trips around the globe in order to find these fine home decoration goodies. My secret favorite: the vintage Moroccan wedding cushions.

Later on we continued to a kooky store bursting with industrial and vintage finds called ‘Delikatessen’. This is the place to head to if you look for one-of-a-kind vintage furniture pieces, local designs, fine ceramics, industrial pendants. We literally fell in like a horde into the store and snapped our way along. 

A short coffee and cake break was squeezed in at the beautiful organic ‘Kranz Café’ before we headed to a new concept store in the Schwabing area called ‘Weissglut’. Weissglut means ‘incandecence’ in German and you will reach a state of glowing when you roam through the super stylish concept store with carefully selected homeware pieces, home textiles and fashion in the basement. The owner is a friendly chap and will tell you about the idea if asked. So head to this cool store if you happen to be in Munich. Dinner was organized in the über-cool restaurant ‘Theresa’. Since it was too dark for nice pics, see my blog post about the restaurant HERE to have an idea of how stylish it is (and yummy by the way). 

Sunday morning marked our farewell breakfast in the dreamy-white café ‘White Rabbit’s Room’. Easy to decode, the theme is based on the world famous Alice in Wonderland story. A white washed interior, exposed bulbs, wooden furniture, colourful tableware and yummy food – all good reasons to stop by and have a break in the Haidhausen area. Plus, a little store completes the café for those who fall in love with the accessories and tableware.

So, isn’t this all super enticing? Don’t you want to jump to Munich for a quick visit?

    Thank you for all these tips, I’m taking notes here. My mother actually grew up in the Glockenbach quarter (at that time it wasn’t exactly the place to be, of course…) but I’ve never been there! I know, it’s a shame. Next time I’m coming to Munich I’ll definitely go on a little design shopping tour.

    Pics are fab Igor. And I love the look of ‘Weissglut’. Not sure I could do a quick visit to Munich… would need to stay a few days at least! 😉

    Wenn ich die Fotos sehe, weiss ich warum München schon seit Jahren auf meiner Wunschliste steht… Schon schräg warum man in manchen Städten noch nie war obwohl es gar nicht so umständlich wäre, oder? Happy weekend, Igor!
