Description
The restaurant is located in the very heart of Germany´s secret capital - the Marienplatz of Munich.

There is no way you will get more down-town, since the Ratskeller is located in the cellar of the new town hall - built in the late 19th century... There are few places where you get to see more history while enjoying some of Munich´s best traditional dishes...

We certainly do offer vegan and vegetarian meals, too. Approx. 20% of our menu consists of meat-free food.

We really hope to see you here soon!
