Located idyllically on the banks of the River Isar, just north of the Alps, the Bavarian capital of Munich is both a popular city break destination and an economic hub. This historic city boasts an impressive range of accommodation to suit the needs of any visitor, with contemporary, centrally located apartments, quaint cottages and rustic farmhouses all available to rent on a short term basis. Whilst city breakers looking for premium rental accommodation may wish to consider the ornately decorated townhouses of Leopoldstraße or the affluent Bogenhausen district, those in Munich on business are advised to check out the modern apartment complexes dotted around the city’s inner metropolitan area. Whether you’re planning a two week holiday or looking to secure temporary accommodation for three months or more, Vrbo offers a diverse range of rental properties located all across the city and its suburbs.

For families

Munich is renowned as a very family-friendly city, owing to its abundance of picturesque city parks, rich cultural heritage and proximity to some of Bavaria’s most breathtaking natural vistas. Families who prefer self-catering holidays and the privacy of rented accommodation will enjoy Vrbo’s selection of cosmopolitan apartments, authentic Bavarian holiday homes and pet-friendly countryside farmhouses. These properties routinely come equipped with cooking and laundry facilities, with some offering private gardens, hot tubs and swimming pools. In addition to the aforementioned benefits and facilities, holidaymakers may find that short term lets often work out more affordable than hotel accommodation on a nightly basis.

Popular neighbourhoods for family holidays, or those looking for a base in between permanent accommodation, include bohemian Schwabing, lively Pasing-Obermenzing and charming Obergiesing.

On a budget

Vrbo offers plenty of affordable accommodation solutions for those wanting to make the most out of their trip to Munich whilst on a budget. As a general rule of thumb, rental properties located in Munich’s historic heart are on the pricier side, whereas holiday lets in the suburbs are often much more reasonable, dependent on property type and amenities. Modern, comfortable apartments fitted with all the latest mod cons can be found in cheaper suburban neighbourhoods such as Sendling and the Olympic City, both of which are popular with Munich’s student population.

Those on a budget must also be aware that in addition to the inevitable rent rises around Easter, Christmas and New Year, short term holiday let rates greatly increase during Munich’s world famous Oktoberfest beer festival which is primarily based in the Theresienwiese district.

Boasting stunning Baroque architecture and the iconic Marienplatz public square, Munich’s Old Town is home to some of the city’s most exclusive rental properties. From chic, multi-level apartments just a stone’s throw from St Peterskirche to elegant houses with typical Bavarian décor, premium properties in the Old Town are ideal for a luxury holiday or special occasion. Elite accommodation can also be found in upmarket Bogenhausen, arguably Munich’s most exclusive neighbourhood.

In addition to having the room to entertain guests and extra privacy, luxury rentals often come complete with hot tubs, pools and free Wi-Fi internet.

For business

Although predominantly renowned for its inimitable culture and ornate architecture, Munich is also a significant hub for finance and commerce. As the seat of various international corporations and growing industries, Munich is very popular with expats and businesspeople. Vrbo offers a variety of properties in the central Altstadt commercial district; from compact studio flats with stunning city skyline views to modern apartments with underground parking and free Wi-Fi.

Short term rentals are ideal for those in Munich on business for just two weeks or a few months, often working out cheaper than extended hotel stays.
