It’s all about the Milzwurst (spleen sausage) here

Milzwurst (spleen sausage) is a speciality in Lower Bavaria. Anyone who travels to Straubing will find the best ones at the Seethaler restaurant. Afterwards it’s off to sightsee in the histo

The Milzwurst tastes slightly like its famous relative, the Weißwurst (traditional white Bavarian sausage). The main ingredient in this Lower Bavarian speciality is Weißwurst sausage meat, with the addition of beef spleen, sweetbreads and calf’s head meat. Milzwurst looks more like a Wiener schnitzel when on the plate. It is cut into slices about as thick as a finger, coated in breadcrumbs, and then fried. The traditional Seethaler restaurant serves Milzwurst with salad for EUR 8.30. If you have travelled specially to visit Straubing, then you should definitely take a little tour around the town after refuelling. After all, the restaurant is located in the old town. It was founded in 1218 as “Neustadt” (new town) to the west of the old centre of settlement by Wittelsbach Duke Ludwig the Kelheimer, with the intention of it becoming the centre of the Wittelsbach rule. Even today the magnificent patrician houses all around the lively town centre showcase the prosperity of the tradespeople. In 1812, after a visit by the future royal couple, both parts of the square were renamed in their honour – Ludwigsplatz and Theresienplatz. Still have time for dessert? You should definitely treat yourself to a piece of the famous Agnes Bernauer cake for EUR 3.50 from the Krönner café in Theresienplatz.

Arrival: from Straubing station it’s only 750 metres from the Seethaler restaurant. Walk westwards from the Bahnhofsplatz square via Bahnhofsstraße. This street turns into Steinergasse beyond Stadtgraben street; follow it for almost 250 metres, until you turn left onto Theresienplatz. In 50 metres the restaurant should be on the left side of the street.
