Munich is usually known for two things: Being home to Europe’s #1 football team – Bayern Munich – and of course, the world-famous Oktoberfest. However, what isn’t so commonly known is that Bavaria’s capital city is also an ideal place for… herbivores! In fact, there are a lot of amazing vegan restaurants in Munich.

Initially, you may have to learn some basic vegan phrases while in Germany such as:

    • “Ich bin veganer” (I am vegan)
    • “Ich esse kein fleisch, fisch oder eier” (I do not eat meat, fish, or eggs)
    • “Ich esse keine milchprodukte” (I do not consume dairy products)
    • “Entschuldigung, haben sie irgendwelche veganen optionen?” (Excuse me, do you have any vegan options?)

These can be pretty helpful for you as a tourist if you’re in a restaurant that isn’t exclusively vegan. However, if you’re looking for restaurants that specifically cater to your taste, then you’re going to love our list!

12 must-try vegan restaurants in Munich

Without further ado, here goes our list of highly recommended Munich restaurants for vegans. We’ve even added their contact details for your convenience, so feel free to scroll down and read on!
