'''Schwabing''' was founded in the 8th century as a small hamlet and therefore is much older than Munich itseld, which was founded in the 12th century. It was incorporated in the city of Munich in 1890. In the 19th and 20th century, Schwabing reached its zenith of cultural importance. Many famous litterateurs and painters, like Bertholt Brecht, Lion Feuchtwanger, Erich Kästner, Thomas Mann, Rainer Maria Rilke, Wassily Kandinsky, and Franz Marc, to name only a few, were living or working in the district. Lenin also spend some years in Munich.
Schwabing was also location of the ''Schwabing riots'' in 1962, the overture of the student revolt in Germany in the late 1960s.
