The Oxford Society in Munich kicked off the new year 2016 with the traditional Weißwurstfrühstück (“white sausage breakfast”). The Weißwurst is a famous Bavarian dish, served always before noon, so we convened with 60 alumni in the morning of Jan 30th, looking forward to a delicious Bavarian brunch.
The Weißwurstfrühstück took place at the newly refurbished Donisl right in the centre of Munich at Marienplatz, with a view on to the new town hall. The Donisl is one of the oldest beer halls in Munich, with its history going back as far as 1315. It just reopened after two years of refurbishment, and we were the first group to enjoy a Weißwurstfrühstück in its largest dining room, the “Marienplatz”. A uniquely Bavarian-Oxford style fusion setting, with long tables just like in college halls, it provided for a great feast with plenty of Weißwurst, Brezn, and wheat beer.
After three hours of eating, drinking and mingling, we finished and walked into the winter sun, looking forward to what else 2016 will bring for us.
