Booking comes highly recommended at this cosy Haidhausen joint which serves exquisite Mediterranean dishes and feels homey all year round. In a 19th-century building on a quiet residential street, Preysinggarten has a simply clad interior with fresh flowers, candlelight and specials on a blackboard. It wins extra points for its excellent vegan and veggie options (until recently, a rarity in Munich) and exceptionally friendly service; visitors young and old, local and new in town, are welcomed as regulars. (The venue is super-kid-friendly, with a playground out back.) In warm weather, the courtyard is lovely, particularly for a long, lazy Sunday brunch.
Our one top tip for eating in Munich? Make sure you’re hungry. Münchners certainly don’t skimp on portion sizes. Munich gets a lot right, but the community-centric heart that beats within is best felt in the city’s cuisine. Everything from Michelin-starred fine dining to communal chompers can be found, each as delicious as the last.
Eating well is one of the best things to do in Munich, full stop. A Village of a Million People doesn’t run on air, after all. You’ll need plenty of energy to visit the world-class museums and concert halls, so stock up on sustenance at these magnificent restaurants.
