Located by the Marienplatz in the pedestrian zone, the Augustiner Bierhalle is a fine place to have a meal and enjoy some delicious beer. Just grab an empty seat at one of the long tables. If you're not sure if it's taken, just ask , "Sitzed hier jemand?"(Zitzed here yeemand?).
Favorite Dish: The food here is good, but for me, the attraction is the beer, which I rank among the finest in the world.
This is one of the traditional beer halls of Munich. However, the waiters and waitresses aren't very traditional Bavarian. We heard a lot of slavic accents and one woman told her workmate in her best Berlin accent that she would wear her old Dirndl the following day ;)
In my opinion the Augustiner is not as touristy as Hofbräuhaus and I think the beer and food here is better too. The hall is huge and very traditional and nice. We sat outside in the backyard though to enjoy one of the first spring days of the year.
Favorite Dish: Weißwurst, Brezn and a very tasty sweet but spicy mustard.
This is a nice atmospheric place to make a stop while you are in the old city of Munich. The prices did not seem too bad, and the service was good. Of course, you will find a lot of beer here in large glasses.
Favorite Dish: I tried the Weisswurst (white sausage) that is a local specialty. It was not expensive at all. This is served boiled and still in the boiling pot. Accompanying the wurst is some mustard. This, some bread, and some beer make a good meal here. Not everyone likes it, but it is something that definitely comes from this region.
The Augustiner's origins date back to the late 13th century when monks from the Augustinian Monastery began brewing this celebrated beer. The existing location dates to the late 19th century and is located on the main shopping street between Marienplatz and Karlsplatz. I stopped in for a meal one afternoon and, although the food was heavy, it was very good. Try the pork knuckle if you don't mind clogged arteries and the potential for a massive life-ending heart attack!
This is a vert traditional Beer Hall. Full of athmosphere. The Augustiner Beer is excellent. The outside of the building is a very beautiful example of Jugenstil (Art Nouveau).
Favorite Dish: I saw something I liked the look of on the next table. I said “Ich hätte gern das, bitte” and that’s what I got. Don’t know what is was, but it tasted great. It cost about 6 Euro which made it very good value as well.
Another pleasurable outdoor cafe and Beer Garden with talented chefs sure to please.
Situate a fantastic restaurant in the center of Marienplatz, have some seating outside, and the others are history.
Shhh ... this is the pub the tourists would love to find, but haven't fully succeeded yet. It is a great place to enjoy the magnificent Augustiner beer (brewed close by) and enjoy hearty food. Prices are far cheaper than at other beer halls. If you're going at the weekend, you might need to reserve. But it's a cracking place.
Favorite Dish: All good. You can get ox meat.
Augustiner Brauereigaststätte (Brewhouse)
Here you can find simple but typical Bavarian Kitchen with fair prices and cheap cold beer.....
....it´s more real than Hofbäuhaus.... try it.
Favorite Dish: Bavarian Kitchen, Beer
This is a big beer hall/restaurant, not necessarily a tourist place. It's busy and bustling. On our first visit we ended up sharing a table with a German man (fortunately who spoke English) who helped us with the menu.
Favorite Dish: The Sauerbraten is great! My husband also enjoyed a sausage plate.
Very good food, and selfmade beer.
Favorite Dish: The very Munich Menu - Roast Pork and Beef - is a big dish cost only 18.9 Euro per person.
This was the first place I went to for a beer on my visit to Munich. Much smaller then the other but just as popular.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed a heffe weissen beer and of course a weisswurst with the sweet mustard.
Augustiner Brau Ausschank Great beer, wonderful sausages & mustard, what more can one want?
