Bavarian Restaurants: Ratskeller

By  Wednesday, 1.6.2016, 13:14    Restaurants

Many German towns used to have a traditional Ratskeller restaurant or inn in cellars of the town halls. Munich’s Ratskeller has in the past years found its place in the Bavarian capitals gastronomy scene as a Wirtshaus (inn) which doesn’t only offer traditional Bavarian meals, but also has menu with a host of international dishes, so it’s not competing to be more “Bavarian” than the Brauhauses around. The huge Wirtshaus under Munich’s Town Hall seats 1,200 people inside and a few hundred outside at the Prunkhof of the Town Hall at the Marienplatz.

In its cosy and down-to-earth interior the Ratskeller is showing its culinary and optical best. You’ll find specialities from Munich and Franconia accompanied by Löwenbräu beers fresh from the tap and wines from the wine estate Würzburger Juliusspital.


The chef Michael Schubaur, a student of the famous Bavarian Michelin star chef Otto Koch, creates with expertise and fantasy true culinary events in his pots. The tireless kitchen team is only using fresh ingredients of flawless quality and origin, preferably from the region. The Ratskeller is also known brunch place and for its choice of fish dishes.

The brunch choices in the Ratskeller are very diverse, from mid-October until end of May every Sunday different brunch specialities are being offered like the Bavarian Ratskeller brunch, the Italian o-sole-mio brunch (it’s already too late for the "Hombres Delicados Zumba & Dance Latino All-Inclusive Brunch"), the fish & seafood brunch or the Advent brunch. The prices at the Ratskeller are reasonable Munich average and many dishes are also available in smaller (and cheaper) versions. A pub and a bistro with happy hour from 3pm – 6pm are also part of the Ratskeller.


Address: Marienplatz 8

Opening Hours: open daily from 10am until midnight
