Munich is not a place for someone on a diet.

The primary food groups here are sausage, beer, salted white radishes, and pretzels.

The best and würst of Bavarian sausages

Sausages are called wurstel and come in so many shapes, sizes, and stuffings that it would take a whole book just to explain them all.

The greatest hits include:

Dumplings—German starch

Any food ending in the word knödel is a dumpling, which may be made of semmel (bread), leber (liver), or kartoffel (potato).

Best bets for traditional fare

The best place to sample any of these specialties is the bräuhaus (beer hall tavern), where people sit communally and amicably at big tables.

Munich's other great contribution to the world of restaurant types is the outdoor biergarten.
