Beer and Food in Munich

As the host for the world’s largest beer festival, Oktoberfest, Munich has long been a Mecca for beer lovers, and you can’t visit the Bavarian capital without stopping at one of its legendary beer halls. It’s not only the beer that scores fans, though — Bavarian food is some of Germany’s most renowned and local specialties include roast pork with crackling, Knödel (potato and bread dumplings), creamy Obatzda cheese and deliciously sweet apple strudel.

Timing your visit for the annual Oktoberfest (held in late Sept/early Oct) is the most atmospheric way to discover Munich’s beer-brewing and sausage-eating heritage, when Munich’s historic brewers set up shop in the city’s Theresienwiese Park. If you can’t join the millions at Oktoberfest, a visit to the world famous Hofbrauhaus, Munich’s legendary 1,200-seat beer hall, comes a close second, where traditional cuisine is served to a soundtrack of live oompah bands and local beer is presented in 1-liter Masskrüge (traditional beer glasses). Alternatively, a beer and food tour of Munich will give you the inside scoop on where to sample the city’s best brews and tuck into the tastiest Weisswurst (veal sausage).

Still want to know more? Head to the celebrated Beer and Oktoberfest Museum, join a food walking tour and visit the 200-year-old Viktualienmarkt food market, or take a guided tour of the world renowned Paulaner Brewery, where you’ll get to peek behind the scenes before tucking into fresh beer and pretzels.
