Place to eat
“The Viktualienmarkt is the local market of Munich. People buy food, flowers and cooking ingredients here. There is also the "Schrannenhalle", where people can buy even more food. The Viktualienmarkt is almost like a "farmers' market" in the centre of the city.”

“I want to be honest: this is probably one of the most touristic beer gardens in Munich. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. Indeed it is one of the oldest and therefore mentioned in all city guides such as Lonely Planet. Worth going because of the architecture and it’s popularity. For a more authentic experience chose one of the others though!”

German Restaurant
“Wirtshaus in der Au – Dumpling paradise A lot of people who visit Munich would like to try typical food – so this is my suggestion for a Bavarian style restaurant. The menu contains all the usual “Schmankerl” (goodies) from this part of Germany. But there are a few things which distinguish the Wirtshaus in der Au from most typical restaurants: There is also a seasonal menu on offer with, for instance, white asparagus dishes in spring time or goose roast around Saint Martin’s day which is on the 11 November. Saint Martin was once whistle-blown by some pertly geese and apparently this makes them a very popular meal that day. After you have eaten at the Wirtshaus ask for a schnapps. The waiter will present a rack with different bottles and you pick from apricot, damson or rowan berry schnapps to name but a few. As opposed to a lot of traditional places the Wirtshaus also attracts a younger crowd. Every month various events such as Jazz concerts or Waltz dancing evenings take place and they do a summer party in August where people can wear their traditional costumes. And here is my favourite thing: you can book yourself into a dumpling cookery course. So if you want to impress your friends a bit more do not only bring back a stein from the Oktoberfest but also serve a roast accompanied by homemade Bavarian dumplings.”
