Bavarian Restaurants: Zum Franziskaner

By  Wednesday, 25.5.2016, 18:20    Restaurants

Zum Franziskaner (Franciscan) is one of the oldest (founded in 1363, they say) and most traditional Bavarian restaurants in the city and has been run by the Reinbold family since 1966. The Reinbolds also operate the probably most traditional kept tent at the Oktoberfest, the Schützenzelt, where the traditional Oktoberfest shooting competition of the Bavarian Sport Shooting Association takes place, this means – it rarely gets more traditional Bavarian than at the Zum Franziskaner. This is meant in regard to the food served, you can enjoy the food here with fewer distractions as at other “traditional” places. Zum Franziskaner is often the choice of celebrities and politicians (in February, US Secretary of State John Kerry had a Brotzeit here) visiting Munich.



The specialty of the house, next to their Weisswurst, is Spanferkel (roasted suckling pig), various kinds of bratwurst, but also your regular Caesar’s salad, or even Angus beef steaks and Tatar steak (you can mix it yourself or have it done). A curiosity is their menu “for the ladies”. The prices are slightly above Munich average.

The beer brands served at the Zum Franziskaner are Löwenbräu and Franziskaner, both Munich brands, owned by the Spaten-Löwenbräu-Gruppe. The restaurant is located at Munich’s old town, only a five minute walk from the Marienplatz.

Address: Residenzstr. 9
