The Hofbräuhaus after the Panic Following the OEZ Shooting

By  Tuesday, 26.7.2016, 14:45    News

Following Friday’s OEZ shopping mall shooting rampage, panic broke out at some places in central Munich as irresponsible or scared people used social media to “inform” about shootings at different places. Panic also broke out at the Hofbräuhaus, reports today, July 26, 2016.

Among other things which happened at the Hofbräuhaus, the German public is best informed about a group of young British tourist which sat at a window and broke it to climb out of the Bavarian capitals landmark Bräuhaus. The local Munich newspaper today reports about the stuff people left behind and about how some of them reacted after leaving the Hofbräuhaus in a rush.

Over 80 mobile phones, purses, wallets, hats, jackets and other belongings were left behind, also a lot of children’s toys. Some still haven’t been picked up. Many of the people that left abruptly were tourists and have already flown home. They can contact the beer temple and the good people there are going to send it to them. But it’s not only the Hofbräuhaus that’s being fair. There have been a lot of visits of people who came in to pay their Friday night bill and people from abroad have also called for the same reason.

Charming Sabine Barthelmeß (video below), spokesperson for the iconic place, told that people won’t have to worry about that and that the Hofbräuhaus would cover the costs. She added: “It’s great to have such honest guests.” Many guests also praised the management and the staff for remaining calm during the panic and thereby preventing serious injuries.

Meanwhile, the place is getting back to business, the beer garden is as full as ever, and the live music has also made a return on Monday.
