Master’s Home

A Munich favorite for drinks, atmosphere and food. The specialty in the main restaurant is to go for the chef’s 8 course menu where you tell him anything you don’t like and he surprises you with whatever is fresh that day. This is a unique and wonderful splurge for the average tourist.
