A few steps from Frauenkirche is Kaufingerstrasse, a pedestrian-only shopping street. With foot traffic of over 13,000 people per hour, it is among the busiest retail districts in Germany. Meandering through the crowd while window shopping can be challenging. But take a moment to look up at Hirmer façade to admire the sculptures by Julius Seidler. The men’s apparel conglomerate headquarters are inside this 1914 building named Zum Schönen Turm. The Beautiful Tower refers to Munich’s oldest gate tower built here in 1157 and torn down 650 years later.
