Bavarian Restaurant

“Also in this case we find ourselves in front of one of Munich's bivalent attractions, as the Hofbrauhaus is not only the oldest pub / tavern in Munich but also a super place when it comes to eating and drinking excellent beer! Apart from being a gigantic estate, with an immense ground floor with decorated roofs, it enjoys a large courtyard with trees and balconies used as a restaurant. All the rooms to run are full of customers at every hour! Here we ate delicious food and drank excellent beer, open for both lunch and dinner! Not to be missed! Among other things, the Hofbrauhaus is right in front of the Hard Rock Cafe in Monaco, you won't want to miss a ride around here!”

“As a local I would generally avoid the area around Marienplatz (with a few exceptions), as it is way too touristic and full of bad and overpriced restaurants. However, this well-known place is quite a gem and offers an amazing view over the city center, as well as the New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus in German). The highlight (as you have probably guessed from the name of the café) is that you can watch the Rathaus-Glockenspiel from a very nice point of view. Also the restaurant is very romantic and has a nice ambiance, so it’s a great place for a date night. My girlfriend and I discovered it exactly this way by chance, by asking our friends for a romantic place in Munich to have dinner. As the restaurant is open the whole day, you can also visit and have breakfast, brunch, lunch and just coffee and cakes. The menu is changing, but expect an international/European food selection. Keep in mind that the price level has a premium due to location, and always reserve a table in advance.”

Steakhouse

“If you are spending your weekend in Munich with your kids and want to enjoy a relaxed Brunch look no further! The food and atmosphere at Brenner are amazing but the best thing is that they offer a kid's play corner on Sundays with kids supervision free of charge! Booking in advance is a good idea since the free nanny service has become quite popular with Munich's chic parents.”

“Right by Viktualienmarkt, this is probably the best italian shop in all of Germany. You can buy litterally anything from fresh made pasta, breads, mozzarella to wines, olives, coffee or italian brand bikes. ”

Restaurant
“This old church tower is open for tourists and offers a magnificent view from the top of the tower. On clear days you can see all the way to the Alps in the south, the Allianz Arena in the North and I’m sure you’ll be able to spot some more highlights. Be ready to climb some stairs, but it is worth the ‘hike’.”
