Maxvorstadt is a central borough of Munich, Bavaria, Germany and forms the Stadtbezirk 3 Maxvorstadt. Since 1992, this borough comprises the former boroughs 5, 6 and 7 (Maxvorstadt-Universität, Maxvorstadt-Königsplatz-Marsfeld and Maxvorstadt-Josephsplatz).


The borough is next to the north-western part of the Old City. The Englischer Garten is the Eastern border, Schwabing is in the North, Neuhausen-Nymphenburg in the North-West. The borough Schwanthalerhöhe is its south-western neighbor and Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt is in the south. The Eastern parts of Maxvorstadt are often mistakenly attributed to the borough of Schwabing.


The Maxvorstadt is drafted as a quadratical grid and is shaped by the north-south axes Schleißheimer Straße and Ludwigstraße; the parallel streets Amalienstraße, Türkenstraße, Barer Straße, Schraudolphstraße, Arcisstraße, Luisenstraße and Augustenstraße run between them. These two main streets are linked by the east-west connections Gabelsbergerstraße, Theresienstraße, Heßstraße, Schellingstraße, Zieblandstraße, Görresstraße and Georgenstraße, Theresienstraße and Gabelsbergerstraße are one-way streets.

The Maxvorstadt is accessible by public transport by the underground line U2 and the stations Königsplatz, Theresienstraße and Josephsplatz, the underground lines U3 and U6 and the station Universität and also the underground line U1 and the station Stiglmaierplatz. Additionally, the tram lines 16, 17, 20, 21, 27 and 28 as well as several bus lines are running here.
