German Brezel is a popular bread and is soft inside. You can layer it with butter. It is also perfect with Bier or Glühwine. Pretzels are large and also a good appetizer and they start from 59 cents. Sometimes I just get a cup of coffee and Brezel


If you are a meat lover the Sauerbraten is one dish you should definitely try. The Sauerbraten is a traditional German roast of heavily marinated meat. and is marinated in a pickle for several days. The meat can be either beef or pork. The meat is so soft and tender. Traditionally red cabbage is served with it and you can find in most restaurants where they serve you Sauerbraten dish.


Traditionally served as a side dish along with bacon or sausages. If you think Spätzle are pasta then no they are not at all pasta. They are the Swabian speciality though they serve all over Germany. Spätzle made of flour, water, eggs and salt.


The Schweinshaxe or the pork knuckle is a popular Bavarian dish. This piece of meat is part of the pork leg. The meat is so tender and it is roasted till the skin is crispy and serve with potato dumplings. It perfectly goes well with Bier.


Weisswurst or white sausage It is a traditional Bavarian sausage. This is literally a white sausage is made from minced veal and pork bacon. What enhances the taste of the white veil sausage is because it is packed with rich flavours like Parsley, cardamom, speck and ginger. The Bavarian-style of eating the Weisswurst is with Süßer Senf(sweet mustard) It goes well with pretzel and Bier.


The Schmalznudel is addictive and It is part of the Bavarian culture and speciality. The Schmalznudel with a cup of tea or coffee makes your day. Stroll around the Viktualienmarkt in the city centre and visit the most popular cafe Frischut and enjoy your coffee and freshly made schmalznudeludel.


The Schnitzel is a thin slice of meat fried in fat and it is very popular in Germany and is served with varieties of meat as per your choice being veal or pork. It is the Austrian traditional local dish. However, it is very popular in Germany.

Hendl(Geman roasted chicken)

The Hendl is a popular German dish. Very popular during the Oktoberfest festival and also serve in Bier Garten. The ingredients comprise of butter spices like salt pepper paprika and parsley.

Apart from the delicious food lets not forget to taste the German fresh Bier and enjoy our day with delicious food and Bier at the various Bier garden around Munich. Munich has the highest Bier Gartens in any city in the world. Usually, most Bier Gartens are always full, especially on a warm sunny day. Some of my favourite ones are…

Biergarten Hirschgarten

After a visit to the Nymphenburg Palace make sure to enjoy your beer at Hirchgarten. (translated as “Deer Garden”)

Chineisischer Trum

The Chinese Tower is a signature landmark of the Englischer Garten. While strolling around the most beautiful park in the city centre, You can as well walk to the Chinese Tower and relax and enjoy your food and beer here.

Hofbräuhaus Biergarten

I am sure you must already know the famous Hofbräuhaus is the most popular among the tourist. If you are in Munich for the first time this is a must-visit.


This is one of my favourite Bier Garten. I love to come here in the summer and enjoy my Bier and sit by the lake. It is located at Kleinhesseloher See in Englischer Garten I the heart of the city.

I really want to go to Munich, and this food looks amazing. I tried Spatzel last year for the first time at a Christmas market and it was so good. But I’m always ready for a beer and a pretzel. Can’t wait to go back to Germany again

I am Hungarian and have been to Hungary and Austria many times. I love German food and am familiar with many of the ones you mentioned. In particularly I love Jagerschnitzel. I make my own spaetzle often and serve it alongside my Hungarian Chicken paprikas. Loved your post. Am looking forward to getting to visit Germany in the not too distant future.
