Where to stay…
This hotel opposite Munich’s main railway station brilliantly draws on the historic quirks of the infamous Bavarian aristocracy. Bikes and even Minis can be hired from the hotel.
Located across the street from Munich’s oldest brewery, Augustiner-Bräu, this is a great base from which to explore the beer scene. The building’s black-and-white façade contrasts with the luxurious interior.
3. LOUIS Hotel
Situated in the middle of Munich’s fantastic old town, the hotel offers a luxurious and creative take on mid-century vibes and Japanese minimalism. Hotel restaurant EMIKO underlines that with its Japanese cuisine.
What to eat…
The top nibble in Bavaria, soft dough is shaped
into a twisted knot and dipped in a lye solution before baking. Its name supposedly goes back to the Latin word for “arm”, bracchium.
Often served with pretzels, this is a deliciously weighty mix of two-thirds aged soft cheese, like Camembert, and one-third butter. The calorie bomb is mixed with fresh herbs and even some beer.
A must-eat in any Munich or Bavarian beer garden, especially in summer, a whitefish is simply grilled on a stick in the traditional way of fishermen.
