Top choice bavarian

in Altstadt & Residenz

With its screechy parquet floors, stuccoed ceilings, wood panelling and virtually no trace that the last century even happened, this wonderfully characterful inn is perfect for exploring the region with a fork. The menu is a seasonally adapted checklist of southern German favourites, but also features at least a dozen vegetarian dishes and the odd exotic ingredient. Cash only.

The tiny theatre at the back stages great shows and was among the venues that pioneered a modern style of Volksmusik (folk music) back in the '70s and '80s.
