Munich today – News from November 25th, 2022 – Munich

Roof terraces are usually associated with hot summers, hammock swings and cool drinks in a relaxed atmosphere. The people of Munich obviously see things differently: especially in the run-up to Christmas, they climb onto the roofs of their houses. Most of the time, however, these are hotels, and that has a certain tradition. The Polar Bar of the luxury hotel Bayerischer Hof is there – with interruptions, see Corona – for example in the 16th year. And the competition from Mandarin Oriental has a comparable attraction at the start again this year: a transparent Plexiglas igloo in which you can enjoy mulled wine, champagne, wine and an extensive menu.

It is often quite fresh up there, but then it is. Which is why one or the other roof terrace not only relies on mulled wine and Dutch Ovens, but also on physical activity. You can pursue this mainly in the form of curling – which seems a bit strange at first glance, after all it is mainly known from frozen lakes or the Nymphenburg Canal. But since they hardly ever freeze over, people are now increasingly switching to white hard plastic, on which curling stones slide around just as well as on real ice. And so you can play this sport without any problems on roof terraces that are completely free of water and ice.

This sport, which I actually always thought was mainly practiced by retired men, is particularly well represented, incidentally on roof terraces and other terraces that are frequented by a rather young crowd – and in pubs that used to be in the scene – Gastronomy called. There are now plenty of examples of this as well. I took a look around with my colleague Sarah Maderer to see what was on offer.
