To be honest the only thing you have to know about Ballabeni Ice Cream is that in my opinion it is by far the best ice cream in Munich. Once you’ve tried it you’ll share my opinion, I am sure! You can taste the ingredients with every flavour: my two favorites are the chocolate ice cream, which actually tastes like (a lot of) chocolate, and the red fruits ice cream which is creamy and very fruity and a bit sour as well.
You can find new flavours at Ballabeni every now and then but they also keep their classics like lemon-basil, which is always a good idea. Don’t be discouraged by the long queue on weekends and in the evenings: they serve you faster than you think and the ice cream is definitely worth a little wait!
The ice cream is only to take away, but if you want to sit in the sun, you can walk past Museum Brandhorst and sit down on the lawn in front of Pinakothek der Moderne – it’s my favorite spot to enjoy my Ballabeni ice cream.
