Gaststätte Fraunhofer

Food — By Mike Richardson on February 9, 2011 at 5:29 pm

The Fraunhofer is off the beaten path.   One might say it’s off the radar of tourists.  However, this working class restaurant is only a short walk from Munich’s old town area and located in the hip part of town known as the Glockenbachviertel.  It’s the type of place that locals go every week, has been around for generations, and will be around for at least a couple more.  It opened in 1874 and has changed little since that time.  The Fraunhofer is large enough so that you probably won’t need reservation, but tiny compared to the big beer halls of Munich.

The Food:  Traditional Bavarian food

The Price:  As this place is aimed at locals from the neighborhood and not tourists, the prices are always reasonable, you should be able to eat for under €14

The Beer:  The beer served here is Spatenbräu, the original helles (typical beer of the Munich area).  If you prefer what beer, their wheat beer is Franziskaner.

The Atmosphere:  Loud yet cozy, it’s not a huge beer hall, but has almost the same atmosphere depending on the night.
