The tastes and the different flavors are unbeatable!! It's totally delicious! I tried chocolate, ginger chocolate, maroon, yoghurt, chai and milk&mint. Especially milk&mint and ginger chocolate were very surprisingly good!! Best ice cream ever!! Plus the staff is super nice and friendly! I heard that there are long queues in summer... Even in October there was quite a lot people... More

If you love ice cream, this shop will not disappoint. Very flavorful, fresh, and inexpensive ice creams and sorbets are served in waffle bowls. Try the chocolate ginger-- the chocolate is very intense with lots of zippy ginger flavor. Swoop in on one of the benches outside and linger over this delicious treat!

The reviews suggested this was the place to go for icecream in Munich. The queue out the door suggested the reviews might be right. The taste test proved the reviews correct. It is well worth trying the more unusual flavours - they are a taste treat.

My absolute favorite ice cream of all time. The flavors are amazing, even though some of the combinations I would not have thought of. My personal favorite is the coconut sorbet. Definitely worth a visit. We take all our guests there during their open months.

Don't be put off by the queue, you are served quickly. Really enjoyed both the ice cream and sorbet. Not overly expensive. Just across the road from Museum Brandhorst.

The flavors are truly outstanding. The ice cream is intense and rich (a warning for those who don't like sweet). But the flavors are true and combinations marvelously intense yet subtle: chocolate ginger, cannolo, pistachio...

It is sooo worth it. Best ice cream probably in the whole world. There is no place to sit, and it is definitely overcrowded, but still - it is worth it.

I just dont get it. I've eaten better ice cream but there is always a long cue. The ice cream tastes kind of fatty. A good point is that they let you try a bit of an ice cream for free.

The ginger schokolade is AMAZING, and the lemon/basil also delicious. We've been here twice in less than a week and we have another five days until departure, so we may be back! It's a small shop, so a sign asks you to wait outside until a server is available; not all comply, but it's all friendly and still efficient.
