Bratwurstglöckle on Oktoberfest - Munich

Bratwurstglöckle on Oktoberfest

Bratwurstglöckle: Maybe the best Bratwurst on earth

Bratwurstglöckle is my favorite place to get some Bratwurst or other sausages on Oktoberfest.

And there is also an ordinary restaurant of Bratwurstglöckle close to Marienplatz, next to Fraunkirche.

On Oktoberfest they have just 98 seats inside the restaurant, for reservations call:
(089) 231 10 90 or 0171 670 07 39
Fax: (089) 64 18 10 72
and
reservierung@gloeckle-wirt.de


Favorite Dish:
Bratwurst in any kind - try all of them and decide for yourself !
In Bavaria you will also find out , that mustard does not always have to be spicy and hot...

"Süsser Senf" - sweet mustard is mostly served with Weisswurst but also with others.

In general any kind of food is really expensive on Oktoberfest, so be prepared to pay more than normally.

Comparison: about average

Directions: On Theresienwiese or Fraunplatz ( the square with Fraunkirche, opposite of the main entrance)

hmm, Wienerwald - Munich

hmm, Wienerwald

WIENERWALD: Chicken and more...

WIENERWALD - restaurants are in general a good place to have a rather cheap meal all over Germany and Austria.

In Munich they have 4 restaurants and of course they are also to be found on Oktoberfest :
There are just 365 seats inside the "tent" and another 100 places outside.
For reservations call :
(089) 72 01 64 27
Fax : (089) 72 01 64 28
phone directely to the tent during Okoberfest :
(089) 50 22 22 24
Fax : (089) 72 01 64 28


Favorite Dish: Their favorite dish is chicken in all its diversity, but they also serve great Wiener Schnitzel and even Kaiserschmarrn in their restaurants !

On Oktoberfest I may recommend to try half a roasted chicken - it tastes fine and is less expensive than most of the other food on Oktoberfest.

Address: Theresienwiese / Oktoberfest

Comparison: about average

Directions: Directely on Theresienwiese / Oktoberfest - same street as Hippodrom !

Augustiner in Munich - Munich

Augustiner in Munich

Augustiner Bierhalle: A great traditional restaurant Augustiner Bierhalle Review

Augustiner is one of the most beautiful traditional inns in Munich. It is situated in the pedestrian area and has this wonderful " beergarden " in the back of the building.
I was there in october, and it was a bit too cold to sit outside, but in summer it will be hard to get any of these tables.


Favorite Dish:
Schweinsbraten with Knödel / Knoedel and a fresh beer.
There are different kinds of Knödel / Knoedel in Bavaria:
Semmelknödel - made of rolls
Kartoffelknödel - made of potatoes

Address: Neuhauser Strasse 27

Comparison: about average

Directions: Directely on your way from Karlsplatz / Stachus to Marienplatz - on the right !

just underneath the townhall - Munich
Ratskeller: just underneath the townhall Ratskeller Review

Ratskeller in Munich, just inside the cellars of the "Neues Rathaus" am Marienplatz, far underneath the "Glockenspiel" (chimes)
They have several larger and smaller siderooms, all of them furnished in a different, lovely way, with a really great athmosphere.

In summer there is a garden-restaurant as well beeing totally in the shade, and even on a sunny day you may easily get a seat, as it is rather unknown by the tourists !


Favorite Dish: There was a time, when I once had a side-job there, many years ago. They have a different menu every day and offer plenty of great local and international specialities.
Reservation is normally not necessary, BUT it might be, if you are just 2 or 3 persons, you will be placed on a large table, where others are eating already.

Address: Marienplatz

Comparison: about average

Directions: Directely on Marienplatz, under the new townhall and also a garden-restaurant in the innercourt

Hofbräuhaus - Schwemme - Munich

Hofbräuhaus - Schwemme

Hofbräuhaus: Oans - Zwoa, Gsuffa Hofbräuhaus Review


This is what you will see, when you will not walk up 1 stair in Hofbräuhaus, but simply walk in:
"Schwemme" is the official name for this place, where people get their beer and a more simple kind of food, than on the floors above.

In my opinion this place looks wonderful, when you are able to see these arcades shortly before they close, and when you are lucky and the porter will still let you in for a picture.


Favorite Dish: During the day they have some music there, loud and drunken people, it has a certain smell and dust...

I rather prefer the restaurant upstairs ! BUT of course you should also take a look at these great arcades, and forget about the noises and smells for a moment !!

Address: Platzl 9, 80331 Muenchen

Comparison: about average

Directions: Haufbräuhaus is in the very centre of Munich, just folow the crowds !

Vinzenz Murr - a great place for a snack - Munich
Vinzenz Murr: Vinzenz Murr - a great place for a snack

Vinzenz Murr is first of all a big chain of butchers, but in most of there shops they also have a seperate counter for hot and cold snacks, sandwiches, drinks etc.

They even have a small tent on Oktoberfest, close to Armbrustschützen-tent with 140 seats.


Favorite Dish: Leberkäs - meat loaf is the official translation, but you better do NOT try to imagine, what it is like - try it and I am sure you will like it !

Krautschupfnudeln is another speciality...
Schupfnudeln are mostly thick noodles made of potatoes, eggs and flower, and they will be mixed with roasted cabbage

another favorite snack of mine are the great sandwiches

Address: Rosenstrasse, Weinstrasse...

Comparison: about average

Directions: This shop is in Rosenstrasse, another one is in Weinstrasse (IN the new townhall )

Hofbräuhaus by night - Munich

Hofbräuhaus by night

Hofbräuhaus: In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus Hofbräuhaus Review


Hofbräuhaus might even be the most famous restaurant / inn in the world.
"Hof" is the german word for the Royal court, and "Hof-Bräu" was the beer drunk at the court by the king and his guests, so it certainly was the very best beer in the country.

There is a great restaurant on the 2nd floor , (in Europe we would call it 1st floor ;-) with great cuisine and of course the famous beer.
Simply take these few steps upstairs for a great dining experience.
If you just want to drink some beer, have a look for my next tip :
Hofbräu - Schwemme


Favorite Dish: Schweinsbraten & Beeeeeeeeer is my favorite dish , but of course they have a lot more great dishes to choose from !

Address: Platzl 9, 80331 Muenchen

Comparison: about average

Directions: In the very centre of Munich, just a few steps from Marienplatz

bugs on Oktoberfest ! - Munich

bugs on Oktoberfest !

Käfer's Wiesenschänke: Where to find the Jet-Set of Munich Käfer Review

KÄFER (bug ) is certainly one of the best places to go, when you are looking for a perfect meal, excellent service, and do not have to look for the money you will have to pay...

KÄFER has a deli-shop and a restaurant in Munich , and he has also one of the bigger tents on Oktoberfest :
1000 seats inside and 1900 seats outside of his tent that looks rather like a chalet in the mountains.

For reservations call
Tel: (089) 416 83 56 and
Fax :(089) 416 88 80
during O'fest call directely to the tent :
(089) 50 07 73 34
Fax:(089) 50 07 74 47

INside the tent you may mostly NOT get a seat, as all of the VIP's of Munich, actors, politicians etc. are mostly going there, and when they do not know you, you mostly have NO chance to get inside...

OUTside is no problem !!


Favorite Dish: My favorite at Käfer's Wiesenschänke is the Coffee :
It is served in a big cup, beautifully decorated with bugs ( Käfer means bug ) - and the best is :
You may take your Käfer-coffee-cup home for free !!
(and it looks different each year !)

Address: Theresienwiese / Oktoberfest

Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: The Käfer's Wiesenschänke is close to Bavaria & Ruhmeshalle !

beim Sedlmayr - a great restaurant - Munich

beim Sedlmayr - a great restaurant

Prices are about average and the food is fine !
