Last but not least, there is one thing not to be missed on a Bavarian sausage discovery tour, and that is the Weißwurst. According to legend, it was created right on Marienplatz square in Munich, on Carnival Sunday in 1857: Sepp Moser, the landlord of the “Zum ewigen Licht” inn, ran out of sheep intestines for Bratwursts so instead, he stuffed the sausage meat into pig intestines. Out of fear that the skins would burst when fried, he boiled them in hot water instead – and thus Weißwurst was created. Today, the "Café am Marienplatz" café stands in the location where the Weißwurst was created. You can order a Weißwurst there as well.

News and opening hours are available here.
