With the millions of tourist visiting the Bavarian capital every year and the huge sums invested in marketing of all the events, traditions and specialties, one really wonders how some of the best things of the city aren’t known to visitors of the city. Or do the clever Bavarians have an unwritten rule of keeping the best stuff for themselves?
Although the menus of some of the popular Brau- and Wirtshauses of the city point out that they offer Weisswurst from Wallner to show their dedication to quality and real food from Munich, few of the visitors know that Ludwig Wallner (48) is something like Munich’s Weisswurst Pope, just as his father before him. In earlier times it was common for most of the city’s taverns to produce their own Weisswurst.
The best place to taste Wallner’s Weisswurst is the "Gaststätte Großmarkthalle" (Kochelseestraße 13, 81371 München) run by Ludwig Wallner and his sister. The Weiswurst is produced by Wallner himself in the cellar of the simple place without table cloths. The Gaststätte Großmarkthalle is only open from 7am-5pm on weekdays and from 7am until 1pm on Saturdays, Weisswurst production begins at 6am. A few hours later, the first Munichers are coming in for their breakfast before work, while the workers and merchants from the nearby wholesale market come in after they have done their job for the day. The place also has other traditional Bavarian meals on the menu and the prices are very reasonable.
