40th birthday

Will be in Munich for my partners 40th birthday in Feb,

We stayed in Munich last year so have an idea of what is there but I am looking for a few ideas as to what to do for him on his birthday.

Also can any one recommend a bakery that sell pre prepared birthday cakes? ( we arrive the night before.)

Was thinking of a beer keller for his birthday night and was going to see if they would bring his cake out to him?

was there last year for his birthday but wanted to make it special this year for his 40th

thanks all

You can get a small round Torte (20cm diameter) at around 18€ either:

- at the Luitpold café, no. 1 on this map: http://tinyurl.com/munich-cafes

- in the Dallmayr delicatessen store, cakes, it's no. 3 on the map

But it will not have a special birthday decor, except maybe some candles that they can sell you separately.

We were in Munich for my husband's 40th as well. On his birthday we went on an evening Beer and Brewery walking tour with Munich Walks - lots of fun. The guide was great, as were the other people on the tour - I mentioned that is was my husband's birthday and they all bought him extra beers and made a big deal out of it. No cake, but who needs cake when there is beer? :-)

EXACT dates

The Starkbierfest starts in February.

Whereas the Brits have pancakes the Germans have Donuts, dress up in fancy dress and have a special "Strongbeer Festival". Comes from the Monks who used to brew it before lent.

Starkbier is generally somewhere around 7-8%

Various of the well known Brewery Kellers have festivals. Begins roughly last week in Feb (e.g. 22 Feb in Löwenbräu)




Traditional starting place is the Nockherberg but it doesn't start until 1st March
