Munich’s best open-air market, Viktualienmarkt.

You won’t go hungry in Toytown. From traditional Bavarian Schnitzel and Schweinebraten to elegant Michelin-starred dining, Munich’s culinary scene runs the gamut.

Where to Stay // Bayerischer Hof
Owned by the Volkhardt family since 1897, this is Munich’s premier hotel, with elegant rooms, boutiques and five restaurants, including the one-Michelin-starred Altelier. 

Morning // Viktualienmarkt
At Munich’s best open-air market, locals shop for produce and game, but you can also snack on handmade pastries and grilled sausages. Stop by Fisch-Witte for top-notch seafood soup.

Lunch // Alpentraum
Modern inspiration breathes life back into traditional alpine classics. Beef and scallops with a touch of vanilla, calf’s head served with potato-chive dressing—this isn’t your Oma’s cooking, but it’s just as comforting.

Snack // Balla Beni
Folks queue up for gelato at this Schwabing neighborhood favorite. Go for simple flavors such as lemon-basil and caramel-amaretto, scooped into wafer cups. Theresienstraße 46

Dinner // Tantris
Open since the early 1970s (with the décor to prove it), this is truly one of the world’s best restaurants. Chef Hans Haas rearranges his imaginative, globally inspired menu daily. Go all out and order the eight-course tasting menu—this is a rare dining opportunity, after all.
