Restaurants in Munich + Bavaria
The airport outpost of Munich’s favorite coffee roastery and gourmet shop (the Dean & DeLuca of wurst) features strong dark brews and Weisswurst, a delicate white veal sausage served with Munich’s signature snack—a fresh-baked pretzel with mustard.
A Bavarian restaurant with its own brewery and a huge indoor beer garden complete with slatted wooden chairs, Airbräu serves custom-made beer (try the Weissbier, a Bavarian favorite) at $3.30 for a healthy half-liter glass.
The famous Munich beer hall has a branch tucked away on a quiet end of Terminal 2.
The local specialty may be sausage and pretzels, but the growing German organic movement is also represented at the airport.
Wooden elephants and stone Buddhas announce the restaurant’s upscale Thai theme (though the menu is a mix of Thai dishes and sushi) with typical Munich extravagance.
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.
This vegan eatery was designed by Nitzan Cohen.
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.
