Birth Clinics & Hospitals in Munich

There are a total of 10 clinics and hospitals that provide care for birth in the city of Munich. In general, clinics are understood to be “Frauenkliniken” which care for female health and provide gynecology and obstetric services. Hospitals, or “Krankenhäuser” have more infrastructure, such as pediatric care units. In German, the word Klinik is often used as a general word referring to both clinics and hospitals.

The clinics and hospitals are presented here based on their type: städtische Kliniken (municipal clinics, funded by the city of Munich), Universitätskliniken (clinics affiliated with the local universities), and Privatkliniken (private clinics). Of the private clinics, the Geisenhofer clinic fits into the subcategory known as a Belegklinik, or clinic contracted by doctors in private practice.

You can learn more about these types of clinics and how to understand which will be the best fit for you in my online mini course “Birthing in Munich,” coming soon in the Fall 2021! Contact me to receive an update as soon as the course is available!
