Eating and drinking in Bavaria is closely associated with conviviality and custom. Tuck into lunch with family and friends under the shade of chestnut trees in a Biergarten. Enjoy Bavarian hospitality in rustic inns. Any culinary journey through Bavaria will inevitably involve wine and beer: more than 600 breweries and craft beer makers offer around 40 different types of beer, which complement the regional cuisine to perfection. And wine lovers will appreciate the great wines of Franconia, often still served in the traditional Bocksbeutel. Cheers – and Guten Appetit!
