One of Munich’s most traditional Wirtshauses, the Donisl near the Marienplatz was reopened in November 2015 after almost 3 years of renovation. The name “Donisl” stems from innkeeper Dionysius Haertl, who kept the tavern from 1760, but the tavern at the location first opened in the beginning of the 18th century. Under the new Donisl-keeper, Karlheinz Reindl, the Wirtshaus upholds Munich’s beer culture and offers excellent Bavarian cuisine with an urban and contemporary touch.
In the first of the two videos below you can see the highlight of the new Donisl, its sunroof. It can be completely opened for open-air feeling inside the restaurant. The place also has a terrace directly at the Marienplatz. The second video shows what we mean by “contemporary touch”, the food looks mouth-watering.
The specialty of the house is boiled meat with vegetables (Münchner Siedeküche) which is served in pot. The Donisl offers all traditional Bavarian and Austrian dishes. For a lunch for two we recommend the Grosses Donisl Brotzeitbrettl for €15,60 it includes roast and various Bavarian specialties, such as the obligatory Obatzda cheese-spread. The prices are more than reasonable, considering the central location at the Marienplatz and the fresh interieur.
The beer served at the Donisl comes from the Hacker-Pschorr brewery, one of the big six of old, Munich headquartered breweries which are allowed to serve their beer at the Oktoberfest. Try the Hacker-Pschorr Edelhell (pale lager from a wooden keg).
