This paper discusses and shows various aspects of the city of Munich: on the one hand a successful metropolis not only on a German scale, but also on European and global scales; on the other hand an urban reality that has experienced such increases in inequality and poverty as to arouse concern despite the goals achieved. To help understand the reasons for this unparalleled growth over the last decade, a quick historical summary is pre¬sented and then emphasis is placed on development methods for an urban region in Munich much broader than the borders of the city itself. Finally, an examination is made of the policies developed by the administration of Munich showing the positive effects and overall implications for the functioning of the city.

Keywords: Munich; urban mega-region; inequality
