Wirtshaus is a word that describes a kind of bar-restaurant serving traditional Bavaria food and beer. This has been serving since 1901 and it's one of the best. A stone's throw from the Deutsches Museum, it has a great vaulted room and collections of beer steins, providing one of the best atmospheres around. It has a combination of fantastic service and outstanding local dishes, and it serves everything from Hofente (roast duck) to Schweinsbraten (roast pork). But the real specialty, and for which it is renowned, is Knödel (dumplings), which, in addition to traditional Semmel (bread) and Kartoffel (potato) varieties, come in spinach, cheese, and even red-beet flavors. Weather permitting, you can sit in the small beer garden under, of course, chestnut trees. A day in the Deutsches Museum followed by an evening here, and Munich doesn't get much better.

One must try the knödel - at least once. This is a good place to enjoy the Bavarian kitchen. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, and large servings.
