“Welcome to the land of plenty!”
At one of the best delicatessens in the world
In our quest to increase The World of Neuschwansteiner, we have chosen Munich for our “talk of the town” theme for this month. The reason? Because, at this time of the year, the beautiful Bavarian capital deserves even more the title ’Beer capital of the world’. Of course, it is Oktoberfest-time, and during those two weeks, every year more than 6 million people visit the Wiesn.
As an alternative today we offer the unique opportunity to sample and taste our royal beer in a distinguished and more elegant atmosphere than the beer tents at the Theresienwiese: At the world renown ‘Dallmayr’.
In the heart of the city centre, the Dallmayr delicatessen with its landmark facade is a magnet for visitors annually attracting more than 1.4 million tourists from all over the world, and the same number of local residents.
Founded around 1700, and named after owner and merchant Alois Dallmayr in 1870, it became one of the best delicatessens in Europe around 1900, boasting a list of customers that included the German imperial family and 14 other royal houses in Europe!
Due to the economic situation after Black Friday, in 1931, Dallmayr decided to take on coffee and established a special department. Raw coffee was purchased and roasted. The Dallmayr coffee brand quickly gained an excellent reputation. Dallmayr coffee, with its luxury prodomo brand, is one of the leading names on the German coffee market.
On the first floor of the traditional delicatessen, you can dine in the finest possible style thanks to Michelin-starred chef Diethard Urbansky and the attentive care of head waitress Barbara Englbrecht. In its newest issue the well-known Gourmetguide “Der große Hotel- und Restaurantguide” acclaims Diethard Urbansky as “Chef of the Year 2015″.
“Welcome to the land of plenty!” is Dallmayr’s headline for their shop. They explain: “Dienerstrasse 14–15, Munich – the address of Germany’s most famous and traditional delicatessen. Dallmayr offers a Lucullan range for every occasion, the likes of which cannot be experienced anywhere else.
This year Florian Randlkofer became the fifth generation of his family to manage the company.
During opening hours today, you can taste our royal beer in the Dallmayr shop at a special promotion stand.
“We are very proud to announce, that Neuschwansteiner is now available at Dallmayr”
During next month we are also displayed in a special window. We send a big thank you to Dallmayr for placing us so nicely during Oktoberfest time and invite you to come if you are in Munich
Stay tuned: Oktoberfest history and interesting facts as well as alternatives to beer tents, ‘Bretzn’ and ‘Hendl’ coming soon!
P.S.: Did you know that Dallmayr also takes care of the delicious catering of the BMW DTM hospitality at all races? Our royal brand ambassador, H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria told us; of course he gets to enjoy it often as he drives the classic race taxi on the DTM tracks in his original race suit!
