  • Not far from Munich Airport lets you know right away the best German cuisine, accompanied by various beers that accompany the flavours of different dishes. Definitely a good experience even a visit to the brewery.

  • Extremely friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and dare I say the best beer on the planet.
  • Good bavarian restaurant and a really nice location. Also perfect location for business dinners!
  • Wonderful food and beautiful view. Quite a steep walk from town.
  • Weihenstephaner is my favorite beer. On vacation to Munich I made the decision to take the train here and couldn't have had higher expectations. They were met. The beer was outstanding with many styles available. The food was well cooked and delicious with the mustard being great as well. The views from outside the abbey were awesome and the prices were not low, but not high. I'd make the trip again in a heartbeat. The place is a bit tough to find, but really that's the only drawback and was probably due to my inability to speak german.
