Munich’s Beer Gardens: Augustiner-Keller

By  Friday, 6.5.2016, 19:28    Breweries & Beer

The looks of the oldest (founded in 1812) beer garden of the Bavarian capital hasn’t changed since 1895, but the 5,000 capacity Biergarten Augustiner-Keller has been thoroughly renovated in 2012. Under the shade provided by over 100 old chestnut trees at the Arnulf Street, the beer garden serves beer from Munich’s most popular brewery, Augustiner, and the beer is still being delivered in wooden barrels. The Augustiner-Keller is the flagship beer garden of the old Munich brewery, and the beer served is still being delivered in wooden casks. If you hear a bell while enjoying your Mass, it means that a new cask of Edelstoff has just been tapped. The Augustiner-Keller is owned by the brewery and is run by the Vogler family.

If you can’t find a place to sit at first, don’t be too shy to ask people to slide closer together and let you join their table - “Z'samrutschen” (to slide closer together) is the traditional Bavarian reservation system. It ensures that the guest still finds a place, even at completely crowded places. The new guests will be integrated after Z'samrutschen in table fellowship, as if you were to know him/her for 100 years.

A Mass (1l) beer costs €7.50, Obatzda €7.60, Bavarian specialties cost around €10. For the most part, the beer garden is self-service.

Address: Arnulfstraße 52

Opening hours: throughout the year, provided the weather permits Monday – Sunday 11:30am – midnight

Getting there: about an 8 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof (central rail station), Tram 16 and 17 station Hopfenstraße, all S-Bahns station Hackerbrücke.
