Eataly Opens in Munich

Eataly Opens in Munich

On November 26, 2015, the first German Eataly opened its doors in the historic Schrannenhalle, an important commercial and cultural building in the heart of Munich, with the aim of bringing the former market back to life and its former glory.

At 50,000 square feet, the bustling two-story market is already on its way to revitalization. Eataly Munich follows the same format as our first location in Torino, Italy, offering a place where guests can eat, shop, and learn about Italian food and drink. Accordingly, the market is overflowing with 10,000 high-quality products interspersed among nine restaurants and counters, two cafes, a private events space, and a cooking school with a rich culinary program.

Like its fellow Eatalys across the world, the store is dedicated to a unique cause: sustainable mobility. This is an homage to the city of Munich, which has the highest number of bikes per capita in Germany. Accordingly, Eataly Schrannenhalle boasts an exclusive Bianchi shop that showcases technology, performance, and Italian design with Bianchi bicycles, accessories, and clothing.

Created in partnership with SIGNA Retail, Eataly Munich opened with great success thanks to the dedicated 220 staff members: pizzaioli, chefs, pastry chefs, bakers, servers, butchers, fresh food experts, baristi, master chocolatiers, gelato makers, wine and beer experts, and more. All are focused on Eataly's main mission: transmitting the best of the Italian taste and culture. Chef Alex Sallustio, former sous chef of Norbert Niederkofler (St. Hubertus in San Cassiano, Badia, Bolzano: Michelin star), is their guide, assisted by Lucio Pompili, Eataly's collaborator since 2013 and an ambassador of Italian cuisine across the world.

“Eataly's road though Europe has now a start, thanks to Munich," said creator and founder Oscar Farinetti, who was there to welcome the first guests of the first German Eataly. "This is the nearest town to Italy, in all senses, and for this reason we are sure that the Bavarian people will appreciate the real great Italian kitchen that Eataly offers, together with the history and the traditional values of our enormous food and wine heritage.”
