It was here that Munich Weisswurst was created in 1857 - a local white sausage, the pride of the city and the state. White sausages have been known since the 3rd century, but Munich Weisswurst is unique. We owe this masterpiece of Bavarian cuisine to the city's butcher, Sepp Moser.

The city has long been known for its sausages, which were eaten by wealthy Munich townspeople when the inhabitants of nearby villages had to make do with meatless dishes for economic reasons.
