Food & Drink
Art and good food join forces at the Gasteig. GAiA, the caterers at the Gasteig HP8 site in Sendling, serve delicacies made from regionally sourced ingredients.
GAiA Restaurant / GAiA Alm
Inspired by Gaia, the Greek goddess of the earth, the catering team at Gasteig HP8 serves a selection of sustainably sourced food and drinks all year round. In the bright, modern atmosphere, the GAiA restaurant on the ground floor of Building K serves up delicacies all day long, from breakfast to late-night snacks. Why not take a look at the varied menu of Mediterranean, regional and vegan dishes when you next visit the Gasteig? Alongside pizza, pasta and risotto, you’ll find a mouth-watering selection of fish and meat dishes here: salted herring, carrot tartare, home-made curried sausage, stewed tomato and quinoa soup – plus, of course, a range of starters, salads and desserts.
The GAiA Alm
From 2 February 2023, the GAiA Restaurant will temporarily turn into an alpine idyll the GAiA Alm. A rustic mountain lodge already adorns the restaurant’s terrace, and comfy wooden tables and benches provide warmth on cold winter days. With seating for up to 140 guests, there is even more room for people than we normally have in the regular restaurant, which is currently closed for renovation following water damage. But don’t worry: the menu is just the same in the Alm, and the opening hours are also unchanged, so you can enjoy food and drinks morning, noon and night. There are toilet facilities directly at the Alm and a disabled toilet next door in Hall E.
Due to water damage, refurbishment work is necessary on the ground floor of Building K. These also affect the GAiA Restaurant, which will therefore move to the new GAiA Alm directly in front of the restaurant entrance on the terrace as an interim restaurant for a few months from 2 February.
Daily from 9 AM to 11 AM
GAiA Deli & News
Right on the ground floor of Hall E, the GAiA Deli & News reading café welcomes you with a friendly ambience and the wonderful scent of freshly made pastries. At the counter, delicious treats from the bakery of patissier Oliver Ränke vie for your attention. Make yourself at home in the café’s comfortable seating area or settle down on the steps and watch the hustle and bustle in Hall E. Thanks to the Vytal reusable packaging system, which eliminates plastic waste, you can take away food and drink with a clear conscience.
Current newspapers and magazines are also available to read in the café – courtesy of the Munich City Library, whose online services can be enjoyed on two public screens.
