Thinking out of the box, or let’s say: thinking in boxes. This whole new shopping concept is a unique one of its kind. Mein Platzl (my space) gives small manufactories, who have their origin in Bavaria and the Alpine region, the opportunity to sell their products directly in the city center, close to Marienplatz and Viktualienmarkt, by renting a box in an area where normally no one would afford the rent.
OK, that’s a nice idea, some might say. But what makes it special?
If you visit the centers of the biggest cities all over Europe, you will recognize that all look the same. You find stores of international fashion chains, big coffee shops or beauty stores. Mein Platzl tries to be different. Visitors and clients can choose from a big variety of local products which correspond to the highest standards. And all of those were produced within the German borders and not shipped from abroad, a long away.
What is sold there? Let’s say… everything? From handmade gloves to locally brewed beer, cookbooks of Munich locals, handcrafted dishes and so on.
If you want to take something with you which is really authentic, then visit Mein Platzl.
