The specialty served at the Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl am Dom doesn’t originally come from Munich, but from the Franconian (also part of the Free State of Bavaria) town of Nuremberg. Nevertheless, the Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl am Dom is one of the most popular Bavarian restaurants in central Munich, especially with tourists.
The Nürnberger Rostbratwurst is a small, thin bratwurst from Franconia's largest city, Nuremberg, was first documented in 1313; it is surprisingly small, being only 7 to 9 cm in length and weighs between 20 and 25 g. At the Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl am Dom you can get the original from Nuremberg, but also their own, made by the house-butcher. A normal portion of the small sausages is 8 and with a side dish of sauerkraut, horse radish or potato salad costs €11 here. They are grilled over wooden fire.
Larger groups of tourists like to visit the place for the simple orders they can place here. The big “Bratwurst Platter” comes with 50 Nürnbergers, 5 Stadtwurst sausages, 5 sausages with cheese and side dishes. It costs €114 and feeds... many. There are smaller versions of the platter also available.
Even though the really delicious grilled sausages are the culinary star here and the reason why the 120-year-old restaurant is world-famous, other traditional Bavarian dishes are also on offer, as well as good steaks and some international dishes. The beer served at the Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl am Dom is Augustiner from wooden kegs. Augustiner is the brand locals drink the most.
On warm days, the patio at the base of the Frauenkirche is one of the most beautiful places in the city to relax after a tour.
