Munich

Postby TheHairyHop » Thu Feb 16, 2017 12:10 pm

Yes, I know. Probably deserving of more than one discussion, but I'm living in Italy at the moment, and I will be using this as an opportunity to explore Europe. On the list is, of course, Munich. The problem is that there are just too many things to do! I was wondering if everyone could give me their top destinations in Munich. It doesn't even have to be a beer related suggestion, but I'm not lying when I say that beer is the reason that I am going. After looking at some threads, Ayinger and Kloster Andechs are making the list. I am not afraid to travel or rent a car in order to get out of the city.

Perhaps spend a day, and evenings in Munich (I also really enjoy the Englischer Garten), venture out to Wolnzach and the hop museum, Bamberg if you like Rauchbier (and it's just a cool city). What time of year are you going, I assume spring coming up? What's your favorite beer style? Schneider or Erdinger are options, too. Yeah, you're right, too many to choose from. Depends what you want. :)

In Munich all the usual touristy stuff is pretty awesome. My favorites are the Deutsches Museum and the Munich Residence. The museum is close to the altstadt so if your walking you can always stop for a beer, or six. Be sure to hit Wirtshaus Ayingers and Weisses Brauhaus.

Thank you all for the suggestions! This is great. Yes, I should be going sometime relatively soon. As in, within the next 60 days

I am a big fan of the darker styles such as dunkel, dopplebock, weizenbock and dunkelweizen. I truly do love all of the typical styles, however

Lots of my British friends kept asking the same question, so did a little writeup.

Trachten?

That would depend on the region you are from. If regional specifications are not a constraint, then you can always get them from Leopold "Poldi" Wittelsbach.

Make sure you get it right though (open chequered shirt and lederhosen are a huge no-no - wear at least a vest). Poldi's staff will gladly offer impeccable service and advice.
