Münster has a lot of gastronomic opportunities for its visitors. You can soak up the local culture by binging on beer and sausage, or try out a more refined international palate.
From the traditional hearty German fare to the trendy European style bistros, there is somewhere for you to eat to your heart’s content.
There is a wide variety of international foods that you will find here. However, be sure to try one traditional Westphalian dish, the Pfefferpotthast, a stew of pepper beef and onions, as well as Reibekuchen (Potato Pancakes) and Sauerbraten.
Altes Gasthaus Leve (Alter Steinweg 37)
This Münster restaurant is purportedly the oldest in the city, dating all the way back to 1607!
Altes Gasthaus Leve features a great menu filled with local favorites and of course, the most popular regional beers. The restaurant prides itself on its fresh and delicious cuisine, with such offerings as Dutch herring.
The interior design will leave you in no doubt that you are in Germany, with its traditional beer garden atmosphere. Some patrons have also seen a small dachshund roaming the premises to further complete that sense of German-ness here.
Come experience it for yourself. ;-)
