In the Heart of Haidhausen
What’s the motto of Munich’s inhabitants? A bisserl was geht immer! – There’s always time for a little bit of what you fancy! That’s especially true of the much-loved French Quarter, as this part of Munich is also known. Savoir-vivre – the good life – is celebrated here like almost nowhere else.
The Perfect Connection
In the truest sense of the word, Munich is at our feet! And anywhere that isn’t walkable can be reached quickly and easily with public transport. The Gasteig tram stop is almost directly in front of our door. The number 17 tram takes you to the historic Isartor city gate in just two stops – or you can ride it directly to the Munich Pinakothek art museums in the Maxvorstadt district. And here’s an insider tip: The legendary number 19 tram leaves from the Max-Weber-Platz just 800 meters from JAMS, stopping at many tourist attractions. It’s perfect for a little tour of the sights! The Rosenheimer Platz S-Bahn station is also only 600 meters from the hotel. From here, the S1 and S8 lines travel to Munich Airport (with a travel time of just 35 minutes) and the central station (just five minutes away). Alternatively, we can offer our guests an airport shuttle with our exclusive limousine service for the fixed price of €95.
Open-Air Fitness Area
Just a stone’s throw from JAMS lie the Isar river meadows and the English Garden, forming an enormous open-air fitness area. The most beautiful walks and cycle routes along the Isar are found here. In the summer, the river invites you in for a swim – or you can use the wide river meadows to relax and enjoy the unique city beach atmosphere. Diagonally across from our hotel is the famous Müllersches Volksbad, the first and oldest public swimming pool building in the city. Swim laps in the neo-baroque Jugendstil ambience and treat yourself to a relaxing sauna afterwards.
A Toast to Pleasure
Haidhausen is the promised land for everyone who knows how to live. There are eateries catering to every taste – from upscale gourmet cuisine to rustic inns. Besides the 33rpm restaurant in JAMS, the neighborhood features plenty of other first-rate restaurants. At Hostaria Fratelli, Luigi and Rocco Gruosso – two brothers from the Basilicata region – treat their guests to exceptional modern interpretations of classic Italian cuisine. Francophiles will be delighted with the nostalgic 30s-style interior and refined menu at Brasserie Chez Fritz. Besides classics like moules-frites and steak-frites, fresh oysters are among the delicacies to be enjoyed here. Bavarian cuisine is also highly recommended – and an absolute must when visiting Munich! We recommend the Wirtshaus in der Au restaurant and tavern, founded in 1901, just around the corner from the hotel. It is famous for its dumplings and jazz music. And of course, it’s not far from JAMS to a beer garden – the beer garden on the Wiener Platz is just 450 meters away. It belongs to the traditional Hofbräukeller restaurant and is one of the most beautiful beer gardens in Munich. And speaking of the Wiener Platz, the small market stalls found here are the perfect meeting place. Our personal favorite is the Fischhäusl, where you can enjoy fabulous fish dishes for moderate prices at standing tables throughout the day. The Muffatwerk beer garden, Munich’s first certified organic beer garden, can also be found less than five minutes’ walk from the hotel.
Nightlife, Culture, and More
Clubbers and barflies are also just a beat away from the city’s pulsing nightlife. The Gasteig, Munich’s largest cultural center and philharmonic concert hall, is right by the hotel. What’s more, smaller institutions – like the Unterfahrt jazz club, one of Europe’s most important jazz venues – are also found nearby and offer our guests an international program of events. Anyone drawn to the hippest clubs in town can enjoy the very best electronic music in the Blitz nightclub on the museum island. A lot of Munich’s most-loved bars are also located in our neighborhood. There’s something to suit every taste!
Restaurant —Fugazi No° 15
Pizza, Pasta & Famiglia! This 50s-style restaurant has a cult following and is a favorite of Munich’s inhabitants – especially on weekends. The menu is primarily Italian with lots of pizza and pasta, but the burgers and brunch are equally acclaimed.
Japanese food of the highest quality! Situated in the heart of Munich’s city center, KOI is a Japanese restaurant of an exceptionally high standard. Contemporary and with an international twist, the kitchen is influenced by informal Japanese izakaya cuisine. On two floors, guests can enjoy an extravagant blending of styles both gastronomically and visually.
Cultural Center —Gasteig
Directly across from JAMS lies the Gasteig and its philharmonic concert hall, Germany’s largest cultural center. Famous for its high-caliber cultural events, it welcomes two million visitors per year and – on top of that – houses some of the state capital’s renowned cultural and education institutions.
