Wirtshaus in der Au Munich – Dumpling paradise

restaurants
Restaurants

"Wirtshaus in der Au" Munich is my suggestion for a typical Bavarian restaurant with all the Schmankerl. Pro tip: after you have eaten, ask for a schnapps.

A lot of people who visit Munich will of course 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 or goose roast on Saint Martin‘s day in November.

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.
