Mountains, lakes, cowbells, dirndl, chamois beard plus a jug of beer and some crunchy pretzels under a blue-and-white sky - it sounds like paradise and that is what it is, our Bavaria! As Bavarians love their food, and like to eat it in the open air, you will find here everything the heart desires in the beer garden, from sausage and radish salad to pork brawn. All the Bavarian favourites are here ordered by the occasions and places where Bavarians like to enjoy them. For example the Friday dishes - as that is when even the most meat-loving Bavarian will not put any meat into his or her plate: delicious steamed dumplings with crunchy crusts. And yes, many traditional events like the erection of the maypole, the driving down of the cattle from the mountain pastures, church fairs and folk festivals magically attract tourists. Why? Because there are so many delicious Bavarian foods to sample - visual and culinary delights. Hello then!
