Pfunds calls itself "the most beautiful milk shop in the world," and the claim seems quite plausible. The interior is as intricate and ornate as the Zwinger galleries or the Semper Opera—a mosaic of antique porcelain tiles, mainly in blue and white, covers the walls, ceiling, and virtually every surface, resembling a heavily frescoed mini-palace. True to its name, the shop sells milk products and souvenirs downstairs, including fresh milk, yogurt, cheese, and butter. Upstairs is a sit-down restaurant that's slightly less thrilling (and rather conventionally decorated), with a menu that's heavy on cheese (fondue, Râclette, cheesecake, etc.). Stop by for a quick snack downstairs and just take in the interior—the shop is out of the Inner Neustadts pedestrian zone, but it's worth the walk.

Open daily 10 am to 6 pm.
