Cities in Germany are known for their unique character. Hamburg is bustling as a commercial city, Frankfurt has the coldness of being a financial centre, Berlin is lively and cosmopolitan. Munich, on the other hand, is a city that looks inaccessible and cold from the outside, but where the liveliness of life meets calmness. One of the most active points is gastronomy. Munich is one of the cities with the most Michelin-starred restaurants in the world. Desserts are one of the areas where Munich cuisine is assertive. From traditional desserts to gelato ice cream, from light and vegan desserts to flavors kneaded with chocolate, Munich is a full stop of flavors. Here are a few examples of dessert shops in Munich for you.

This place, where you will find global flavors as well as Bavarian flavors that the people of Munich love very much, will be one of the first places they will recommend to you when you ask a Munich friend.
