Obacht’, Munich

Obacht’, Munich

What to buy here: German Cutting Boards and Kitchen Supplies- The people of Bavaria enjoy their own kind of style, which is presented in certain colors (blue and white for example), patterns (rows of alternating colors of diamonds) and designs. They are proud of their long traditional heritage and Bavarian language (which is actually quite different from the more general German language), and therefore, they often decorate their homes with items that show off their tradition and culture. At Obacht’, a small store in downtown Munich, many of these cozy household items stemming from Bavarian traditions are available. This is just one place where you can find a staple of German kitchens: the German cutting board. Smaller and narrower than most American cutting boards, these decorated plastic boards are designed to showcase Bavaria. With bright background colors, some feature pictures of the traditional German “weisswurst sausage and spicy mustard” breakfasts, while others proudly present the famous Bavarian soft pretzel, a cool beer, a scene from Oktoberfest, or even the skyline of Munich. The cutting boards, as well as other items in the store, such as specific aprons and specially decorated coffee cups, are all staples in warm German homes, and will cost about 5 Euros for the mugs, 10 Euros for the cutting boards and 20 to 30 Euros for the aprons.
