Restaurants in Munich + Bavaria

Terminal 1’s market-style restaurant and bar (the only 24-hour establishment in the airport) features sekt (German sparkling wine) and serves coffee, cakes, and 16 flavors of ice cream, as well as Bavarian, Italian, and Asian cuisine, in a bustling food-court atmosphere.

A car-delivery center accessorized with restaurants and shops. The swooping glass-and-steel leviathan, designed by Austrian firm Coop Himmelb(l)au, looks like a spaceship touching down.

This vegan eatery was designed by Nitzan Cohen.

Reservations are essential at this tiny spot, which serves classics like suckling pig.

The famous Munich beer hall has a branch tucked away on a quiet end of Terminal 2.

The restaurant occupies the vaulted cavern of the city's royal stables, now encased within a modern complex built behind a Victorian-era façade. The salsiccia, however, is a little bit dry.

Despite its name, this fine-dining restaurant is not actually a buffet in the traditional sense of the word. However, the small bistro does serve a wide variety of international cuisines, including American, Italian, and French.

In the busy basement enoteca, decidedly less pricey and formal than the fine-dining room upstairs, dark walnut tables are full of hip young locals; it’s like being back in the 21st century.

Hunker down with a book and an appetite for an all-day breakfast.

The local specialty may be sausage and pretzels, but the growing German organic movement is also represented at the airport.

Bavaria is the heartland of simple, rib-sticking dishes heavy on the würstel, potatoes, and sauerkraut—accompanied, of course, by liter-size mugs of beer—and there's no better place to indulge in the cholesterol fest than alongside local residents in the mayor's basement.
