eating at the Welt

Thanks in advance for the feedback.

We're two weeks from our first ED, and I was looking for clarification on meals at the welt. We'll be around for breakfast and lunch, and I know there is complimentary food service. However, it looks like there a few different places to eat at the Welt and I'm wondering which ones are complimentary and which are not. Beyond cost considerations, are there any of the cafes that you prefer over the others?

Thanks again.

Lounge is complimentary. The other options are not.

The lounge really had more than enough food and variety for at least two meals. Plus beer!

The lounge has a wide variety of cold food, and hot food -- sausages when we were there. Don't forget, the white sausages you have to peel and not eat the skin.

In addition to the 10 Euro gift certificate for the BMW store, we received a food voucher which we used on the first floor sandwich/drink concession. I believe it was 15 Euro. I wonder if they still do it, as I haven't read anything lately on the forum. We used it to purchase drinks/water for the road trip.

No more 15 euro food credit. I got it in 2011, but not in 2013 or 2014.

Well, there is an alcohol-free beer there as well...

Not that I would recommend it

The lounge is where you sign in. You can enjoy free food there. There is cafe on the ground floor; there are restaurants on the opposite side of the lounge - Bistro, Cafe and Restaurant, all 4 places are paying services.

Feel free to take some things on the road with you. I took a bunch of water and beer. That last us a few days.

Well now I feel guilty for making my son eat the whole thing.

Also wish I'd thought to grab a few extra beers and waters. I didn't want to drink anything during the day because we had a long drive ahead of us after delivery, but I could have had a few later that night. Ah well. Next time.

My wife wanted something a little more substantial than was offered at the lounge (I thought they had plenty), so we ate at the Bavarie Brasserie, dubbed, French-style cuisine with a Bavarian Touch.

The food was good and the ambiance was nice, but it isn't exactly cheap.

There are menus and descriptions on this website:

I know beer is the thing in Munich, but I'm not too keen on it! Anyone know if there is any alcohol (such as wine) other than beer in the premium lounge?

Yes there is wine. I don't know if it is any good because we were real ED'ers.

Are you allowed to access the lounge on days other than the actual delivery day? I'm set for delivery on 9/25, but we were planning to go the day before to check out the museum. Since the museum is at 11:45am, it would be awesome if we can grab a bite to eat beforehand.

Since the museum was closed on Mondays, we came back the next day and went to the lounge beforehand. Keep your plastic Welt cards with you in case anyone asks, but it is not likely they will.
