There was a big football game taking place, so typically a number of fans wear dirndls and lederhosen (with football shirts) as supporters.
Lots of strawberries and white asparagus were available for sale in the markets.
For lunch I headed to the Spatenhaus - one of Munich’s best known beer restaurants. I managed to get an outside seat overlooking the opera house of Max-Joseph Platz. There is a more formal inside restaurant with high ceilings and chandeliers.
Spatenhaus serves traditional (and generous sized) Bavarian food and is frequented by locals before and after performances across the square, as well as throughout the day.
Indulgently, I ordered the curry sausage and chips (apparently they have their own special curry sauce!) which I tucked into.
After sitting and soaking up some of the sunshine, I then was in the mood for something sweet. So I headed to “Balla Beni” ice cream shop.
I headed round the corner to the gardens in front of the Pinakothek (art galleries) to savour my delicious treat.
And it lived up to it’s reputation - the ice cream was heavenly and the sorbet a refreshing partner-in-crime! I definitely recommend a visit.
