Bavaria’s little capital offers a wealth of choice, from designer boutiques on Maximilianstrasse to high street retail on Kaufingerstrasse and food shopping at Viktualienmarkt. Munich is also a top destination for sophisticated beauty fans. Recently there has been an increase in demand for premium natural cosmetics, and the city has seen the opening of several top stores for organic, ethically friendly make-up and beauty products. Those interested in natural beauty brands should visit the Organic Beauty Store, or Tobs, which specialises in brands creating products free of parabens, synthetics and preservatives. While there are special niche shops, there are also big department stores, such as Oberpollinger which has the biggest beauty department in the city.
