The Biergarten am Viktualienmarkt at the central Munich Viktualienmarkt located is the youngest of Munich’s best known beer gardens, it was established in 1970. Due to its location and since the Viktualienmarkt is one of the most frequented sights of the city and listed as UNESCO World Heritage, most of its clientele are tourists, but many Munichers are also fans of the 2,000 capacity beer garden and visit it during a work or shopping break and during the traditional events taking place at the Viktualienmarkt, as the one in the video below.
Just like at all of Munich’s traditional beer gardens – you can bring your own food and order a beer. This is a real treat here, since you can get fantastic food from the nearby food stands. Another interesting fact about the beer garden at the Viktualienmarkt is that the beer served changes every five to six weeks. So you never know whether you’ll get an Augustiner or a beer from one of the other six traditional Oktoberfest Munich breweries: Spaten, Hacker-Pschorr, Hofbräu,Löwenbräu or Paulaner.
If you are looking for a souvenir from Munich, you can take home your wheat beer mug for only €3. Just ask one of the waiters or waitresses at the beer garden the makers of which, the twins Dieter und Werner Hochreiter, like to call “Munich’s living room”. A Mass beer costs €7.20, Obatzda €5.80, other traditional Bavarian dishes cost €10-€15.
