Hohenzollernstrasse is the hidden shopping gem of Schwabing. Tucked away at the far end of bustling Leopoldstrasse, this smaller street, lined with boutiques and chic cafes, is a favourite with locals. Munich eyewear specialists FreudenHaus recently returned to this select strip of retail real estate, just down the street from where the brand first launched 20 years ago. FreudenHaus translates into English as House of Joy and the boutique is sure to bring pleasure to eyewear enthusiasts of all ages, with many in-house frame designs, as well as a huge selection of international brands, from Ray-Ban and Oakley to Dolce & Gabbana and Tom Ford. There’s also a children’s department where kids can play while parents select glasses for them. Adults also get to play around, with a specialist selection of sports glasses that can be tested in a 55km/h wind channel.
