Arnulfstraße

The Arnulfstraße is a 3.8 km long urban street in Munich. It leads from the Bahnhofplatz in the Ludwigsvorstadt through the Maxvorstadt (north of the railway) west to Romanplatz in Neuhausen. Over the Hackerbrücke, there is a connection to the Landsberger Straße, which runs parallel to the south of the railway tracks. Until 1983, the tram line 3 drove through the Arnulfstraße. It was initially diverted in the course of the Munich S-Bahn construction and then shut down. In 1996, the tram service was reopened on the Arnulfstraße with the line number 17.[1]
