Joie de vive, Bavarian-style.
We would like to cordially introduce ourselves by saying "Grüß Gott & Hello": We are Kathrin Wickenhäuser-Egger and Alexander Egger, two true Munich natives, and we've always had a heart for the smaller and more extravagant delicacies of our unique city. We have realized a long-awaited dream by opening the Münchner Stubn.
Our idea was really rather simple: A place, where people from all over the world get in touch with Munich soil, some perhaps for the first time, this is precisely where we would like to welcome our guests and show them the genuine spirit of Bavarian hospitality. And wouldn't that be most easily done with a crispy roast on a rustic wooden table, and a glass of beer straight from the barrel? Yes, ... and sometimes some really fresh Bavarian veal sausage is worth a thousand words.
The location of Münchner Stubn in the area around the southern train station is no coincidence: The family Wickenhäuser has been present as entrepreneurs here for more than 100 years, first with the sale of automobiles, and as a successful family in the car racing, with Hotel Cristal in Schwanthalerstrasse for 30 years, and with Hotel Dolomit in Goethestrasse for 10 years.
Let yourself be seduced by the charm of Munich under a white-blue sky. And our fine delicacies that make a visit worth-while time and again.
