Eat and Drink in Munich
Munich is generally stunning, but it is still hard to prepare for the beauty that awaits you in Old Town. Munich’s Old Town is a vibrant centre of culture both modern and historical, with extravagant beer halls, lively festivals and busy markets, and people from all walks of life.
Widely regarded as the best place to live in Germany, highly traditional Munich is developing a cosmopolitan cooking scene. Yes, you can still get plenty of Weisswurst, but the cutting edge has brought in Continental classics, Asian spices, and ethnic-oriented restaurants serving everything from fiery curries to pimped-out cheeseburgers. Munich is a fantastic destination for foodies.
An institution in Munich and one of the most traditional and elegant cafes you can find, Café Luitpold is home to some of the most sumptuous pastries in the whole of Munich, all lovingly prepared by chef Albert Ziegler. Part of the experience is selecting your pastry from a vast array at the counter, instead of simply choosing a name from a menu. A romantic date here would make a heart melt faster than a praline centre.

Selections of everything from meat to confectionery adorn the walls in bursts of colour and explosions of aromas, while countless varieties of wine and coffee and tea line the shelves.
