Weißwurstfrühstück mit Brezn und Weißbier

Munich Weißwurst

Munich’s Weißwurst, or veal sausage, is the culinary icon of the whole Upper Bavaria region. It is only original when it is made with veal. Traditionally it is eaten before twelve o’clock with pretzels, sweet mustard and a Bavarian wheat beer.

Oktoberfest Beer

The Münchner Wiesnbier is specially brewed by Munich’s main breweries for the Oktoberfest. It is a strong “March beer”, which has a higher original gravity of 13.5 percent, giving it not only a higher alcohol content but also a very full-bodied flavour.

Im "Fish Store" gibt es küchenfertigen Fisch auch für Privatleute

Lake Chiemsee Fish

A particular speciality of Lake Chiemsee is the European whitefish, a relation of the trout. It is larger and fatter than that found in Lake Ammersee and can be smoked, grilled on a stick, baked, salted or served as a small fishy treat. 16 families around Lake Chiemsee are still actively involved in fishing.

Weißer Spargel

Schrobenhausen Asparagus

This asparagus has a strong, slightly nutty flavour. The sandy, sunny south-facing slopes of the region are well suited to the cultivation of this popular vegetable. The Schrobenhausen Asparagus Museum offers a number of curious and fascinating exhibits.

Radler

This is a mixture of beer and lemonade, otherwise known as shandy. It was Franz Xaver Kugler who popularised Radler as an alternative drink. He was the landlord of a tourist inn on the edge of Munich, which was a frequent stopping place for cyclists. From 1922 onwards, he served tankards of Radler on the Kugler Alm, and has long been deemed to have invented this mixed drink.

Fraueninsel Chiemsee

Marzipan from Fraueninsel

The marzipan from the Benedictine Abbey is freshly made each day. It consists of almonds, sugar and other ingredients such as the herb liqueur known as Chiemseer Klosterlikör. The almond content is 52 percent, much higher than other marzipans.
