Hotel in Munich Schwanthalerhöhe
The workers' and craftsmen's quarter known as Schwanthalerhöhe developed in the second half of the 19th century. Houses were tightly packed and more and more warehouses and factories built. The Schwanthalerhöhe district marking the western end of Munich's city centre (hence its alternate name Westend) is still a busy district today, but it is undergoing change.
The Munich Technology Center is located on the former site of the rubber factory, modern housing estates have been built on the former exhibition grounds, and ever more green spaces are adding to the district's ambience. Schwanthalerhöhe offers visitors all kinds of possibilities due to its proximity to the city centre. There are various hotels in Munich-Schwanthalerhöhe offering accommodation to suit all expectations.
