As a regular total-munich.com visitor you already know that the history of the Hacker brewery dates back to 1417, that it is one of the six Munich based breweries which serves its beer at the Oktoberfest. Like the other renowned Munich breweries, the Hacker-Pschorr brewery also has flagship Wirtshaus(es) in central Munich, the Altes Hackerhaus, located at the Sendlinger Strasse, near the Marienplatz and the Town Hall, or a few minutes walk from the Sendlinger Tor U-Bahn station.
The Altes Hackerhaus is being run by Paul and Jutta Pongratz since 1985. The Pongratzes about the philosophy behind the place: "The Hackerhaus is synonymous with both Bavarian tradition and avant-garde, futuristic thinking. Interior and menu are traditional; your treatment is future-oriented. Whether you come to lunch with us or celebrate your firm´s anniversary, we set great store by friendliness and do everything to make you feel welcome! Our staff is excellently trained and make every effort to fulfil your wishes.
At the restaurant with the walls covered by historic photos of Munich and the Hacker brewery and its history, you can try almost all brands of Hacker-Pschorr. Below is an informative image video of the charming Altes Hackerhaus narrated in English with some wonderful German accent. The beer hall also has a beer garden in the back and is a bit less touristy, more authentic and smaller than the other similarly famous establishments in central Munich.
The dishes served are traditional Bavarian, with a few specialties, such as the “Therese Hacker’s own ravioli soup”. Here you don’t have to be afraid of all too many “modern or Mediterranean twists” to real Bavarian food. We also recommend you to order a beer with the trademark porcelain Hacker-Pschorr swing top. The menu is available online and you get an English language menu at the restaurant. A three to four course menu will cost you some €30, but the sizes of the portions served are sufficient for two.
