From fine dining to crazy nights, from rustic comfort to modern groove – in the pubs of the old and new town in Burghausen you can find the whole spectrum of life in a gastronomy scene famous well beyond the borders of the town.
Restaurants, taverns, bistros, cafés, ice- cream parlours, wine bars and pubs in the town and its scenic surroundings invite you to sample nouvelle or Bavarian- Austrian cuisine, foreign cooking and traditional Burghausen specialities.
The two faces of gastronomy in Burghausen are particularly attractive. The taverns of the old town tempt with the appeal of their historic vaults and the unique ambience at the foot of the castle. In the new town, trendy pubs and modern restaurants offer many regional and international delicacies and possibilities for staying out into the early hours.
Open-air bazaar with flair
The Thursday market on the spacious grounds of the exhibition hall in the new town is a magnet for visitors from throughout the region. A colourful bunch of around 50 market traders from Upper and Lower Bavaria and neighbouring Austria transform the site into a Mediterranean-style open-air bazaar with a Bavarian-Austrian twist. It’s always worth a visit. The Burghausen weekly market is diverse – alongside fresh goods including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, bread and much more, you can find clothes and flowers. There is also a large selection of organic produce from the region.
