“Munich Map” is a tourist map of Munich, based on the opinions of young people living in this Bavarian city.

In a survey people who know their city very well were able to give personal advice on locations they think should not be missed when visiting the city.
“Munich Map” is a social and subjective map, allowing whoever is open to it, to discover and rediscover some extraordinary spots in Munich.
