Bavarian Restaurants: Beim Sedlmayr

By  Saturday, 2.4.2016, 00:36    Restaurants

Beim Sedlmayr (at Sedlmayr’s) is our recommendation for a traditional Bavarian restaurant in downtown Munich. Although it has the entire recognisable regional folkloristic interior at place, the atmosphere at the Sedlmayr is not yelling Oktoberfest the moment you enter. The reason for this might be that innkeeper Rudi Färber is not out to sell the Disney version of a Bavarian “Wirtshaus”, but takes pride in the dishes served at his restaurant.

No wonder, as the 65-year-old is a trained cook, butcher and confectioner and has added a personal touch and a bit of modernity to the mostly traditional Bavarian and German dishes served. The menu is massive and includes fish and venison. If you’re a vegetarian, they’ll boil you some noodles. The value for money ratio is probably the best around the Viktualienmarkt. The menu of Beim Sedlmayr is available online in English at

Here’s what you could try:

Leberknödlsuppe (Soup with liver dumplings) €4.90

Bayrischer Bauernschmaus mit Sauerkraut und Semmelknödl (Smoked and roasted pork, sausages, Sauerkraut and bread dumplings) €13.50

Kaiserschmarrn mit Apfelkompott („Kaiserschmarrn“ - scrambled pancake, raisins, apple compote) small €8.50/large €10.50


If you come before noon, have some Weisswurst. It comes from Wallner and is one of the best in Munich.
