For those who mourn the "old" Munich, there is now a special treat on Google Maps. But be careful: nostalgia quickly arises here.

  • An unusual collection on Google Maps shows an earlier Munich.
  • The list shows pubs, cinemas and record stores that no longer exist.
  • For some names, the people of Munich are likely to be particularly wistful.

Munich - Was everything actually better in the past? You often hear this saying - also in relation to the "old" Munich, which some of the early rocks that grew up in the city today mourn.

For all Munich residents who like to indulge in the past, there is now a very special collection on Google Maps * .

Google Maps shows "Munich's past places" - A certain list is particularly long

On a Google Maps * map entitled "Munich's Past Places", strangers have bothered to create a collection of former cinemas , clubs , record stores , and pubs . The overview applies to the entire district.

Above all, the list of former record stores is long - some music lovers are likely to miss them in particular. “Walter's record box”, the “Echt Optimal” record store and the “Musical all sorts” store are just a few of the shops that have since closed .

Munich: Closed bars and cinemas on Google Maps - some names are surprising

But even those who are no longer related to the now closed clubs , bars , shops and cinemas should find a look at the overview interesting - if only because of the name.

That the “ Leopold Raucherkino ” no longer exists, for example, sounds a little obvious. Numerous cinemas with the word “ Lichtspiele ” in the name have also disappeared - unfortunately they have their best times behind them.

A number of other traditional cinemas are currently threatened with closure in Munich . For the Filmspielhaus an der Münchner Freiheit it will probably be over in a few months. The future of the Sendlinger Tor movie theater is also uncertain - the operator's son is currently making a special rescue attempt.

Google Maps collection makes Munich nostalgic - numerous views already

Those cinemas , record stores , pubs and clubs for which it is already too late have now found at least a worthy place in the Google Maps collection "Munich's Past Places". Some well-known venues, such as the Atomic Café *, have not been closed for so long - the pain may well be deep among the regulars.

Over 800 views have already been counted - so “ oldMunich seems to be missing by some people.


A visit by an American to the Hofbräuhaus in Munich is a long time ago. Now, 55 years later, she made a remarkable confession.
