One of Munich's most popular beer taverns is dedicated to the delicious Nürnberger Bratwürste (finger-size sausages), a specialty from the rival Bavarian city of Nüremberg. They're served by a busy team of friendly waitresses dressed in Bavarian dirndls who flit between the crowded tables with remarkable agility. There are other options available as well. In warmer months, tables are placed outside, partly under a large awning, beneath the towering Frauenkirche.
In winter the mellow dark-panel dining rooms provide relief from the cold. For a quick, cheaper beer go to the side door where, just inside, there is a little window serving fresh Augustiner from a wooden barrel. You can stand around with the regulars or enjoy the small courtyard if the weather is nice.
