District map

Bogenhausen is the 13th borough of Munich, Germany. It is the geographically largest borough of Munich and comprises the city's north-eastern quarter, reaching from the Isar on the eastern side of the Englischer Garten to the city limits, bordering on Unterföhring to the north, Aschheim to the east and the Haidhausen borough to the south.



Saint George's church, Bogenhausen

Alt-Bogenhausen is the oldest part of Bogenhausen and is enclosed between the river Isar to the west, the Prinzregentenstraße to the south and the Mittlerer Ring to the east and north. Alt-Bogenhausen is one of Munich's most desirable residential districts and has some of the highest quality housing in town. The borough's main artery is Ismaninger Straße, connecting Prinzregentenstraße to the south with Mittlerer Ring in the north at Effnerplatz. The district is serviced by the tram lines 16 and 18 as well as the bus lines 54, 154, 100, 187, 188 and 189. The nearest Munich U-Bahn stations are Prinzregentenplatz to the south-east and Böhmerwaldplatz and Richard-Strauss-Straße to the east.


Herzogpark is a quiet, exclusive residential area north of Alt-Bogenhausen, enclosed between the river Isar to the west and the Isarhochufer (lit. Isar cliff line). The housing mostly consists of early-20th century villas as well as modern villas built after World War II. While most of the district is free of car traffic, the Isarring highway, part of the Mittlerer Ring road system, divides the district into a northern and a southern part, leading to complaints by neighbours due to extensive car noise. The district is serviced by the bus line 187.

Priel, Oberföhring and St. Emmeran[edit]

Priel and Oberföhring are two residential quarters north of Alt-Bogenhausen and up the slope from Herzogpark, straddling Oberföhringer Straße, the districts' main traffic artery. The housing mostly consists of apartment buildings, affording a great view across the city. St. Emmeran is located on the river Isar and is a lush enclave of green. It is named after the St. Emmeran Chapel, which in turn is named after Otloh of St. Emmeram.


Johanneskirchen is located east of the S8 train line. The district mostly consists of detached and semi-detached houses and has retained some of its rural character. It is serviced by the S8 at the Johanneskirchen S-Bahn station.

Other districts[edit]

The Bogenhausen borough also includes Arabellapark, Cosimapark, and Johanneskirchen to the north and north-east; and into Daglfing, Zamdorf and Englschalking to the east. The other areas that make up the Stadtbezirk are relatively newly developed residential areas. Arabellapark and Cosimapark were predominantly green fields until the 60's. You will find a mixture of offices, apartments from the 70's right up to newly built offerings, town houses, semi detached and villas.
