Culinary Experiences in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is an idyllic, year-round mountain resort in the Bavarian Alps, just one hour south of Munich. Two special restaurants in this town offer a unique culinary experience not to be missed.

The Josef Naus Stub’n restaurant located in the charming Zugspitze Hotel (4 star superior), serves regional and seasonal specialties. The hotel loves to spoil its lucky guests with premium local products prepared with the “slow food” method. Accordingly, they obtain their trout and chars from the local Grainau fish hatchery and their Murnau Werdenfelser beef from local farmers. The dairy products are from the nearby Schaukäserei Ettal cheesery, the mutton is from the local Buckelwiesen pastures, and the venison is also of regional origin. The chef only uses natural untreated salt and no flavor enhancers. And of course the restaurant has its own delicious beer, the “ZUGSPITZBLONDE”.

You can enjoy Eurasian and Ayurvedic specialties in Akram's restaurant. Specialties chef Akram has already gained a reputation as a “master of the culinary arts” that extends well beyond Germany’s borders. He states: “Cooking is an art – and in the same way as an artist uses all his spirit and tries to improve every little detail on the product he is creating until his work is absolutely perfect, a cook should do the same when he is preparing a meal. He should use all his senses and bring in a great variety of creative ideas in order to create an exquisite flavor. This is my philosophy.”

If you’re more in the mood for traditional, Bavarian cuisine, such as: liver dumpling soup, crusted roast pork, pork knuckle with dumplings, duck, goose or Apfelstrudel, then restaurants like Fraundorfer, Bräustüberl or Werdenfelser Hof will satisfy your cravings.
