Tal

Tal means "valley" in German, but rather than a leafy boulevard surrounded by rolling hills this street is essentially an (unpedestrianised) continuation of Kaufingerstraße and Neuhauser Straße shopping streets that runs from Marienplatz in the west to Isartor in the east. If you head off looking for the Hofbräuhaus you'll probably end up walking down here.

It's sad to say it, but Tal is probably best known as a good place to get a burger, with both a late-opening McDonald's and Burger King located here. But it's also home to one of Munich's best known and authentic drinking establishments, the Schneiderweiss Brauhaus.

As for shops, Tal is a place to buy things for your apartment really. There's a Butlers and a Das Depot, both of which are budget homefurnishing stores, as well as the rather more exclusive "Böhmler". "Müller", a good drugstore that comes complete with a well-priced selection of CDs and DVDs on the first floor, also finds a home here, as do several lederhosen stores (if you fancy going in fancy dress to the Wies'n).
