EXPO REAL is approaching fast! We’re sure you don’t just want to stay at the exhibition site after a long day or in your free time, so how about strolling around in Munich instead? Over the next few weeks the staff from EXPO REAL will show you what the city has to offer.
Bamberger Haus in the Luitpoldpark
In the middle of the picturesque Luitpoldpark in Schwabing lies a little baroque villa – the Bamberger Haus. There’s something here to tickle everyone’s taste buds: The ground floor, with its grand sun terrace, is home to “Zum Ferdinand”, a restaurant specializing in Austrian cuisine. Down in the cellar though, things are Italian: In “Ciao Francesco” you can enjoy the finest pasta or pizza dishes to your heart’s content. The best tip is however in summer – especially after a hard day’s work – the small but friendly Biergarten on the west side of the villa. My personal recommendation: try the “Griebenschmalz” with a pretzel– not exactly the lightest fare – but, in my opinion, the best Griebenschmalz in the city! If the calorie bomb gives you a guilty conscience you can enjoy a jog through the beautiful Luitpoldpark and if you can master the pulse-raising run up the Luitpoldhügel you will be rewarded by the finest views across all Munich – if you’re lucky, even as far as the mountains.
You can reach the Luitpoldpark directly from EXPO REAL on the U2 in about 30 minutes. Here you will find true Munich locals, guaranteeing an authentic atmosphere. A real oasis of peace in the hectic of the big city. As an Austrian, a visit to the Luitpoldpark is for me a bit like “coming home” – especially when I can enjoy a Schnitzel on the terrace at the Bamberger Haus.
In the coming weeks, more EXPO REAL staff will tell us about their favorite Munich spots.
