Wedekindplatz information

Lonely Planet review

The heart of Altschwabing (Old Schwabing) - Wedekindplatz - still preserves a boho touch thanks to the nearby small stores, gritty bars and alternative theatres. While living here from 1899 to 1901, Thomas Mann penned his famous novel Buddenbrooks . Beatniks and hippies invaded in the '60s, fuelling a minor spin on the 1968 revolution.
