Two young restaurateurs have taken over the kiosk in the local recreation area at Lake Germeringer.
– A fresh wind is blowing at Germeringer See.
And the milder the breeze, the fuller it gets in the beer garden of the new Seekiosk operator.
Melanie Bozicnik (31) and Karsten Volkmer (32) took over the delicacy log cabin, which is idyllically situated directly on the lake, after Johann Reitmeier, who had worked there for four years, retired.
For the two newcomers it is the first gastronomic station in a managerial position, but the landlady in particular has already gained enough experience.
Melanie Bozicnik's father ran the Prinzregent Garden in Pasing for three decades, so the 31-year-old practically grew up in the tavern.
It was there that paths crossed with her business partner at Lake Germeringer.
Karsten Volkmer, who comes from North Rhine-Westphalia, worked at Bozicnik in the beer garden and was looking for a new challenge.
As did his colleague who was keen to continue in the industry after her father went out of business.
The vacant lakeside kiosk came at just the right time.
The couple, who were only connected on business, first helped out at Reitmeier, then registered their interest in leasing with the city and prevailed over two competitors.
Also because Volkmer benefited from his experience during his tourism studies in Deventer (Netherlands) when creating a business plan.
This led the student, who grew up in Rheine, to Munich in 2014 as part of an internship abroad.
The lakeside kiosk is open daily from 11 a.m. all year round, and earlier on weekends.
The opening hours are also visually signaled with the illuminated chain of lights.
In addition to the typical "bathing dishes" such as currywurst and fries, the menu also includes Bavarian delicacies and cakes and now also offers for the health-conscious, including a quark strudel.
Changing daily specials are also offered.
Bozicnik: "You can be surprised." The garden offers space for around 200 guests, in the small room 30 people can find shelter in the event of short-term bad weather.
