Kaufinger- and Neuhauser Strasse
It's hard to imagine, where tens of thousands of passers-by stroll every day, that in this location in the 1960s trams rattled, cars jostled and buses departed. The pedestrian zone opened on June 30, 1972, just in time for the Olympic Games. Today, the shopping mile between Stachus and Marienplatz is one of the most commercially sucessful shopping streets in Germany. Munich owes this success to a visionary urban development plan established decades ago, which envisaged the gradual establishment of car-free zones. And without the creation of this spacious pedestrianised area, Munich's old town would certainly not have the atmosphere for which it is famous all over the world today.
