BAVARIA


BUDGET DINING


in Bavaria Story by Brooke Carbo


T e German state of Bavaria off ers vacationers plenty to splurge on, but dining on its distinctive delicacies doesn’t have to be one of them. T ere are many budget-friendly options for enjoying regional cuisine that don’t cost an arm and a hand-carved cuckoo clock.


Check the appetizers When hitting the famous Hof- bräuhaus or any of Munich’s many beer halls, forgo the pricy entrée and check out the appetizer menu instead. Weisswurst, white sausage made from minced veal and bacon, is a fast introduction to Bavarian delica- cies for under 5 euro and leaves more money for important things, like beer.


Look for bakeries One sure way to eat on a budget, not to mention on the go, is to stop by one of the countless bakeries scattered throughout the region. Müller Bakeries are located around every cor- ner, promising frugal tourists coff ee and pastries for the change in their pockets. At Bäckerei Kistenpfennig directly across from the metro sta- tion in Dachau, the selection is a bit more varied but just as economical. Indulge in the toasted gorgonzola and tomato sandwich for a mere 3.50 euro, or make it a meal with a Coke and a crescent shaped sugar cookie, known as wiener kipferl, for just 7 euro.


Scour the suburbs In the charming towns outside of Mu- nich reasonably priced options are endless. While studying medieval architecture in Regensburg, pop into Café Prock and choose from a variety of sandwiches or the German fast food currywurst for around 8 euro each. With the change, grab a treat at Eispavillon Gelato Caff e for a single euro.


Find the food stands In between tours of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles, browse the food stands lining the street of Füssen for a slice of Margherita pizza or pommes frites, the German take on French fries. For 3 euro, bratwurst is delicious, authentic and thriſt y enough to let you splurge on a hot chocolate for just 2 euro more.


Follow these guidelines if you want to return home with a stomach as full as a suitcase stuff ed with Bavarian leiderhosen.


German Kaffee comes at a cost of 2 euro and, although smaller, is stronger.
