Hidden on the far southeast edge of the city center, the Bayrischer Bahnhof was the terminus of the first rail link between Saxony and Bavaria. The brewery here is the heart of a cultural renaissance, and is the only place currently brewing Gose in Leipzig. The restaurant is well worth a visit for its solid Saxon and German cuisine. Brewery accents surface in dishes such as rump steak with black-beer sauce, and the onion rings can't be beat. If the Gose is too sour for
your tastes, order it with one of the sweet syrups—raspberry is the best. Groups of four or more can try dinner prepared in a Römertopf (a terra-cotta baking dish; the first was brought to Germany by the Romans, centuries ago). In summer the beer garden is a pleasant place to get away from the bustle of the city center.
