11 Pretty good pretzels in munich, with pleasure munich

Hilarious neighborhoods: the Au then and now

A pretzel is not just a well-shaped piece of pretzel pastries, but an attitude to life and there is probably no one who does not like pretzels. The Munich art of baking really only becomes conscious when you come back from vacation and still bite into a pretzel that is warm to the touch at the airport. Glorious. It doesn’t matter that the pretzel actually comes from Baden-Württemberg. And as is well known, they can do everything except High German.

The Bavarian himself likes to eat his pretzels for breakfast, with white sausage, as a snack, in the beer garden, for a snack or just in between. How to turn it – the pretzel, pretzel or pretzel belongs to Munich like the Didi to its fruit stand. No wonder that 324 pretzels a year (and per capita) are plastered so quickly. We have tried and tested and show you 11 bakeries that have pretty good pretzels.

If you walk along the Hans-Sachs-Straße in the morning, the smell of freshly baked bread flows towards you halfway. The cozy Alof can not only make bread, but also pretty tasty pretzels. When the door is opened, a small bell sounds and a fragrance of freshly brewed coffee, cinnamon-frilled rolls and scrambled eggs spreads. At the latest now you are spoiled for choice. At the wood-paneled counter, Lissi greets me with a refreshing "Griaß di" and I sway between the classic pretzel and the butter pretzel for a short moment. I put 50 cents on the counter and hold a lukewarm pretzel in my hand. The color is great. The arms are delicately crisp. The course quick, the inside wonderfully pasty and the scent first. Not too much and not too little salt. I am happy.

The small stand on the Viktualienmarkt not far from Frauenstraße boasts that it has the best pretzels in the city. And this pretzel is really impressive. From a purely visual point of view, it comes across as somewhat lackluster, but the taste is convincing. If you break apart the pretzel, there is a fine smell of fresh yeast. A little (too much) salt and a perfect mix of dough and crisp. So pretzels have to. By the way, the Standl has been known for its breakfast round for years. I meet an elderly lady who calmly drinks her filter coffee here every morning – "it’s so cheap here".

The Piller pretzels are known far beyond the city limits. To be more precise, to the Hofbräuhaus in Chicago. Trump also loves Pretzels. At the Oktoberfest, it is a ritual for many Munich residents to enjoy the first mass with an original Piller pretzel. This is no coincidence, because since 1972 Oswald Piller has been baking for the ox roasting house, the Augustiner tent, the Bräurosl, the Marstall, Käfers Wiesnschänke and the museum tent on the Oidn Wiesn. Also for numerous bread women who sell their pretzels at the entrances. It is not for nothing rumored that these are the world’s best pretzels. They have a great color with a slight sheen. The belly has the typical crack, when it bites off it crackles wonderfully and a fine, yeasty taste emerges on the inside. Pretty good pretzel.

Fun fact: Oswald Piller invented a pretzel sling machine. It can loop 2800 pretzels per hour. He even has a patent for that and is quite proud. Rightly so.

When you hear the word manufacture, real craftsmanship immediately comes to mind. Bearded master bakers who lovingly wrap the dough pieces by hand and young fellows who burn their fingers on the hot baking sheet. In fact, the baking trade is very important in the ten branches of the traditional family company. Karl Valentin liked to eat his bread here. 80-year-old Elisabeth has always been selling fresh baked goods on the Viktualienmarkt under the name Bäckerliesl. What many do not know: the stand belongs to the bread factory. The recipe for the pretzels is an old family recipe from great aunt Maria Schmidt and works entirely without additives and preservatives. And that’s exactly what the pretzel tastes like. Wonderfully quaint, chewy and quick. The lady in front of me at the stand says "the pretzels are a sensation".

The chocolatte is one of those bakeries where there is a wonderful smell of baker and all kinds of baked goods that you can see the baker’s handiwork. There is not an unnecessarily large selection here, but all products are made by the boss himself. You can see that it is not an industrial product and above all you can taste it. There are the perfect pretzels here – sometimes they are crooked, sometimes thick, sometimes quick and sometimes small – in any case always delicious. Sometimes there is even a gift, with the note "Today they are so small, there will be two". Bring some time on weekends as there are often long lines to the street. Delicious!

The Pfister pretzels, as they are affectionately called, prove once again how delicious organic tastes. Especially lovers of the strong crust get their money’s worth here. Purely visually, the pretzels are rather dark and matt, which is due to the lye – but does not detract from the taste. The crumb is sometimes brittle, but this pretzel has the perfect amount of salt. You can also buy Obatzda in the branches and pretzel dip the creamy cheese #brotzeitatitsbest. Additional info: In the happy hour, i.e. in the last hour of sales, the pretzel only costs 46 cents. Cheers!

The Gattinger bakery, better known as the Breznsepp from the Wiesn, stands for traditional and artisan baking and is now in its third generation. Baking takes place in the bakery in the heart of Munich, just like in grandmother’s day. Quality and freshness that you can taste. Uniform color, fine-pored crumb and a delicate bite, to which the cross arms form a great contrast. The handmade pretzels are at the top. Definitely try it.

The small shop in the heart of Untergiesing bakes a lot of things itself – and what the bakery receives is hand and foot. From the outside rather inconspicuous, inside very small – but there is everything you could want in a good bakery. Butter croissants, delicious rolls, bagels and always something to eat for lunch. But now to the star behind the counter. The pretzels are pretty good here. Even so good that many Schwabingers stray into Winterstrasse. By the way, at Harald you give yourself the filter coffee yourself. If the store were in Glockenbach, it would definitely be a hype.

"Lovingly made for you" is the motto of this pretzel heaven. The scent of freshly baked pretzels alone opens every (heavenly) gate. Here you get Bavaria’s favorite pastries not only pure or with butter, but in no less than ten (!) Different variations. Topped with liver cheese or hearty Emmental, the radieserl pretzel or the chive pretzel, which by the way doesn’t taste as good as here. The classic pretzel smells wonderfully of yeast and is wonderfully doughy. So you can safely enjoy them the next morning if you forget them in a gym bag. Passed over the counter with a smile and in the specially created bag with the sweet dots, the pretzel is always warm and fresh even shortly before the shop closes. Gorgeous! My tip: definitely try the honey mustard pretzel.

When it comes to Bavaria’s favorite pastries, the Rischart must of course not be missing. White. Blue. Eh sure. And anyway. Tradition is not just an empty phrase here. The baking is based on an original Munich recipe – with lots of love and a good portion of experience. A good pretzel must not be pasty, Martina tells me, but nice and quick. Salt is an absolute must – not too much and not too little. The Rischart pretzel only knows the words deep-freeze and baking from hearsay. Baking takes place seven times a day in the bakery on Buttermelcherstrasse and is still delivered warm to the branches. You can have the pretzels delivered by Deliveroo. #cool

© Julia Heinz Maroon pretzels feast in the Zöttl bakery

The Zöttl Breze has a long family tradition. Today, as in the past, baking takes place in the bakery in Sendling. Every day from 2 a.m. dough pieces are kneaded and pretzels are looped. "Each one a little different, but all handmade and in the best Zöttl quality," Enrico tells me. The maroon pretzel with a distinctive crustal frill and a closed belly looks rather matt, but has a fabulous interior. Not too doughy, not too crispy and even on the otherwise rather thin arms you have something to chew on. A wonderful pretzel with not too much salt. Craftsmanship that tastes of more.
