Cafés & bars

Bar einer Kneipe

An important part of the Bavarian mentality is "Gemütlichkeit": comfortably relaxing in a friendly environment. A great way to experience this, is to visit a café with your friends and family for at least a couple of hours, chatting away or simply watching time passing by.

The sight of people walking into cafes and bars in Munich to either read a newspaper whilst enjoying a cup of coffee or have a cigar and reminisce on the good old days is fun to experience. You can also witness how Strudel and many renowned german dishes are prepared. Whether inside the (often panelled) coffee house or outdoors on the terrace, the city offers the best places for you to relax all year round - alone or with friends. 

Most cafés open around 10am and offer breakfast as well as warm meals, while those with bars stay open till 1am. These spots are classic meeting points for all those who want a great night out but don't want to go to a night club; some even have live music (Jazz, Klezmer) in the evening.
