More than beer and soccer
A pleasant village feeling amid the city. Bold Munich Giesing is located in the quieter part of up-and-coming Giesing on the edge of the busy district.
Munich city centre can be reached quickly by underground or S-Bahn. Business travellers staying at Bold Giesing will find themselves right next to Munich trade fair centre.
One of the most lively areas in Munich, the north side of Giesing, is right in the hotel's vicinity. Originally a working-class area, the district is now a trendy melting pot, that offers a colourful mix of architecture, culture and gastronomy.
Imagine small traditional houses, Bavarian pubs and railway romance. Giesing has retained its village character until today. Here, locals stroll along the romantic Auer Mühlbach and visit the Grünwalder Stadium on weekends to attend a 1860 Munich soccer match. Not without first treating themselves to a Maß Bier in one of the rustic Boazn (pubs) or the local brewery Giesinger Bräu and then celebrating heartily in the colourful Tegernseer Landstraße.
But Giesing is full of contrasts and has more to offer than just beer and football. In addition to traditional pubs, you'll also find genuine Michelin star cuisine here, for example, at Gabelspiel. And several fancy addresses, like Riffraff or Dantler and of course Charlie, one of our favourite clubs in the city.
We'd love to update you on all of our favourite places in Munich Giesing below.
Organic treats for lunch and dinner
Head to this Bavarian deli in the heart of Obergiesing for a delicious lunch or dinner. Der Dantler is featuring a small creative menu with organic ingredients and excellent drinks. If you can't get enough or don't have the time to sit down, they offer homemade delicatessen for takeaway.
Make sure you don't miss out on the pastrami sandwich and the surprise menu on Fridays!
Coffee, pizza and concerts
Cosy café, pizza filling station, cultural venue and idyllic oasis all in one - Gans Woanders is definitely one of our favourite places in Munich Giesing. Regionality and sustainability are capitalised in the selection of food and drinks.
The icing on the cake: Readings, concerts and theatre performances either cost no admission or you can attend for a small fee.
A trendy spot with tradition
In the shadow of Giesing's landmark, the Heilig-Kreuz-Kirche, you'll find the first newly founded brewery in Munich since 1889. Feast on Bavarian delicacies on two beautiful terraces in the Bräustüberl and enjoy a cold Maß of local beer. We recommend Untergiesinger Erhellung or one of the yummy craft beers on offer. Best enjoyed in good company!
Indulge your sweet tooth
The small bakery in Obergiesing with street sale is baking up to 300 cinnamon rolls every day. According to the locals, they are the best cinnamon rolls in town. The heavenly bites are offered in various cafés across the city, but here is the place where the magic is happening.
We're definitely fans of the classic version, but don't miss out on the ones with apple! Delicious.
Affordable Cocktails & Street Art
Unpretentious design, the black walls decorated by over 30 street artists, including the Giesing graffiti artist Won ABC, colourful 60s chairs, reasonable prices & varying DJs - welcome to one of the most popular bars in the quarter. The operators do a lot culturally, so concerts also occur at riffraff and the "Bud Spenzer Heart Choir" rehearses here.
Our tip: try the homemade cocktail creations, e.g. the Giesing Ice Tea.
Let's party hard
On Saturday nights, you can head downstairs for a night of fun and dancing. The tiny basement club – opened by our local hero, the gastro queen Sandra Forster – calls itself the "happiest bar in town". Downstairs, Charlie surprises you with an unusual lighting concept and the finest music delivered by the best DJs in town. Electro fans will get their money's worth here.
