Birthplace of the Weißwurst
Munich is synonymous with beer, pretzels, and of course sausages. One of the most famous sausages is the Weißwurst or white sausage, which dates back to 1857. It's humble beginnings were at this easy to overlook restaurant in Marienplatz. Since refrigeration wasn't widely available at that time and the sausages were prepared fresh it was and is tradition to only eat these sausages before noon.
