What to Eat in Munich

Bavarian fare is extremely hearty — think: bowls brimming with thick stews and plates piled high with sausage and potatoes. Munich visitors looking to sample some of this robust fare should try the traveler-recommended Spatenhaus and Haxenbauer, both of which are located in Alstadt. However, other cuisines abound, and you should also plan to visit the Haidhausen neighborhood for Italian as well as other international foods.

For a more low-end culinary experience, try popular biergartens like Seehaus Biergarten and Augustinerkeller. Alongside your stein, order a Weisswurst or pretzel.
