Walking around Munich is like wandering through a museum. From the iconic Frauenkirche and Neues Rathaus, to the entire length of Briennerstrasse, the Bavarian capital is rich with historical reflections of its past.
Eating in this German city can be very much the same. From the Bavarian fare that’s served to the building itself, Munich’s historic restaurants can provide the sensation of stepping back in time.
North of the city center in Maxvorstadt is the Alter Simpel. Founded in the early 20th century, this venue was an underground meeting place for writers and other academics. Today it maintains its rustic appearance and still attracts students, professionals, and intellectuals with its tasty menu of traditional fare.
Many of Munich’s finest historic restaurants conveniently have an attached beer hall, including Königlicher Hirshgarten in the western district of Neuhausen. A former hunting lodge that was converted into a restaurant way back in 1791, the eatery features an all-you-can-eat Bavarian buffet every evening.
Two other options for historic restaurants in Munich are the Augistinerkeller and the iconic Hofbräuhaus. The former boasts the best on-sight beer brewery in Munich, while the latter was established in 1589 as the Royal Brewery of the Kingdom of Bavaria. Both of these venues are packed to the brim with history, as well as hungry hordes of locals and sojourners feasting on delicious Bavarian fare.
