Bavaria

The Bavaria statue and the Ruhmeshalle (hall of fame) behind it have been a feature of the western part of the Theresienwiese, where the largest fair in the world takes place every year, since 1850. The Ruhmeshalle contains busts of notable Bavarian personalities. Furthermore, the Bavaria contains a spiral staircase which visitors can ascend and look down upon the Isar floodplains and the old town while sitting in the statue's head. During the Oktoberfest, the interior of the Bavaria statue is closed.

Theresienwiese & Oktoberfest

The Theresienwiese is one of the largest open-air event areas in Munich's city center. Stretching over an area of 42 hectares, Munich’s famous festival site is named after queen Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. On the occasion of her marriage to King Ludwig I, the ceremonial acts at the wedding, which have taken place every year since 1810, became the Oktoberfest, which attracts up to 7 million people. In addition to the so-called “Wiesn”, other events take place, e.g. the Tollwood Winter Festival, Bavaria’s largest flea market and the Fruehlingsfest (spring festival).

Königsplatz

A blend of antiquity and city life - characteristic features of the Königsplatz include the Propylaea, Glyptothek and the State Collection of Antiques, which surround the square.  In summer, the square is transformed into a giant cinema where visitors can watch the latest blockbusters over a nice picnic in the open air. Along with movie lovers, music fans will also find what they are looking for. In 2011, artists including Anna Netrebko and rock musicians such as Status Quo took the stage.

Hofbrauhaus Munich

Built in 1589, the Hofbrauhaus Munich is one of Munich’s tourist magnets. The venue “Am Platzl” (literally: little square) conjures up an Oktoberfest atmosphere. 

There are waitresses sporting traditional dirndl dresses, long wooden tables with benches, brass bands, Bavarian delicacies, and naturally, Munich beer.

Towards the end of the evening, patrons sway about and dance on the benches as at the Oktoberfest.

Paulaner am Nockherberg

Some people call the Oktoberfest the “fifth season" of the year, others term it the Starkbier (strong ale) season. In early March, when the Starkbier season begins, the Nockherberg invites guests to Salvator beer tasting sessions and the yearly “Derblecken” political satire show.

Bavarian cabaret artists make fun of current and former politicians and parody them with reference to current political events. Paulaner am Nockherberg is also worth a visit out of Starkbier season. Throughout the year, the brewery serves the best beer and Bavarian delicacies. In the summer you will find, in addition to the inn, a beer garden from which you can enjoy a nice view of the Mariahilfplatz and the Mariahilf Church.

Augustiner Beer Garden

First chronicled as a beer storage site in 1812, the Augustiner Keller, a cellar and beer garden, attracts residents of Munich and non-residents alike every summer. In the large beer garden on Arnulfstrasse, which can accommodate up to 5,000 people, the beer is still drawn from original wooden barrels. The Augustiner is also open for business in winter. Munich beer can still be enjoyed at the Augustiner Keller.
Bavarian delicacies are served in the beer garden under 100-year-old chestnut trees, or patrons can bring snacks with them to enjoy a piece of Bavaria in the heart of the city over a cold “Mass” (Bavarian for a liter of beer)!
