About Munich/Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt

'''Isarvorstadt''' is a very vibrant residential area with lots of bars, pubs, and clubs, around the beautiful ''Gärtnerplatz'' square. On warm summer evenings this square is a very popular location among young folks to gather, drink a few local beers, and generally enjoy life. Isarvorstadt is also the focal point of the gay and lesbian community in Munich. ''Deutsches Museum'', the world's biggest museum of science and technology, is located on an island in the ''Isar'', which also is part of the neighborhood. '''Ludwigsvorstadt''' consists of Munich Central Station and the adjacent area to the south of the station, where a lot of hotels, hostels, international diners, casinos, and sexshops are located. Immigrants from over 150 countries make this district one of the most buzzing and international areas of Munich. Some streets are extremly Middle Eastern, leading to the locals sometimes refering to this quarter as "Little Istanbul". This area is a really good place to try Arabic or Turkish food. Restaurants and cafés with good Middle Eastern food are virtually everywhere around here, in Schwanthalerstraße you can also find Verdi, a huge Turkish supermarket. Last but not least ''Theresienwiese'', the site of the infamous ''Oktoberfest'' (''Wiesn'' in the local Bavarian language), is located in Ludwigsvorstadt. '''Schwanthalerhöhe''' to the west of Theresienwiese comprises a mix of mostly residential parts and a few industrial facilities, like the huge ''Augustiner'' brewery.
