The beer garden at Zum Flaucher is one of the most traditional and beautiful ones in Munich. When the sun comes out, local people are drawn to “Flaucher” on the Isar River. This section of the river banks got its name from the inn “Zum Flaucher” which was opened by Johann Flaucher in 1871. The beer garden is now part of Haberl Gastronomie and is one of the beer gardens most locals would like to keep for themselves, but if you are a tourist in Munich, you should visit it if you get a chance. The area of the river a bit further from the beer garden is one of the locals’ favourites for picnicking, grilling and outdoor partying.
Here tradition is still alive: In addition to home-made dishes, such as apple strudel and “Fleischpflanzerl” (meat balls) accompanied by Munich draft beer, Bavarian customs are honoured and forgotten habits are revived: In the beer garden brass bands strike up their tunes, whip-crackers and Schuhplattler dancers demonstrate old Bavarian customs. Furthermore, there are numerous events especially for children, such as historical games, pony riding and wooden games, as well as a great new playground. Some other things that go on at Zum Flaucher are shown in below video.
Both the beer garden and the restaurant serve nothing but Bavarian dishes and the “old” Munich cuisine. It is also an ideal destination for a nice Sunday walk from the nearby Brudermühlbrücke or the Hellabrunn Zoo. The beer garden seats 1,300 people and serves Löwenbräu and Franziskaner beer. A Mass (1l) of beer costs €7.70.
