It’s well worth visiting the beer hall inside this brewery which dates back to 1328 and moved to its current location in 1885. Open for beer and traditional dishes from 11am to 11pm every day, it’s more authentic than some of the central beer halls, and so it’s a good place to try out the beer hall experience. In addition to favourites such as crispy knuckle of pork, there are some fish and vegetarian dishes. And lots of beer.

One of the largest city parks in the world, the Englischer Garten is a favourite both with locals and visitors, for relaxation, running, and other sports both in summer and winter – when the snow is down, you’ll see cross-country skiers and young tobogganists. There is a large beer garden next to the Chinese pagoda, and the restaurants Seehaus and Aumeister.
If the words ‘Das Boot’ do something for you, this is your place. The submarine used in the film is here. The children may appreciate the Neverending Story exhibits, and more in general, it’s a great introduction to the world of cinema at Germany’s largest film studio complex.
