Typically, Bavarian cuisine is best known for the traditional Weißwurst (veal sausages), pretzels and wheat beer (Weißbier). Naturally there’s more to it than this but Baravian food generally tends to be homey, down-to-earth dishes.
Popular options are often heavily meat-based such as sweetbreads, roasted pork, liver meatloaf and schnitzel. You can also find lots of fish, soups and stews. Bavaria does not disappoint when it comes to sweet treats with such delights as strudel, cakes and Kaiserscharrn which is a type of sweet pancake often covered in icing sugar and served with applesauce.
Given that Munich is the home of Oktoberfest, it comes as no surprise that the city is awash with breweries and beer gardens for you to visit. The Augustiner-Keller on Arnulfstraße is particularly well-known and isn’t far from the site of the annual Oktoberfest festivities. Hofbräuhaus on Platzl 9 is also a great spot to grab a beer and some delicious traditional Bavarian delicacies.
