What separates Augustinerkeller from all the other beer halls in Munich – at least in the minds of the locals – is its reputation for having the best brew in town served straight from the taps in the oaken barrels.

On any warm day, the place is packed with regulars and visitors alike tossing back liters of beer under the shade of ancient chestnut trees – and since this is the second largest beer garden in Munich, the crowds are quite impressive.

As with most beer gardens, Augustinerkeller also offers hearty Bavarian dishes and special treats like Obazda, a traditional savory cheese spread that goes great with an oversized pretzel.

The venue is definitely worth a visit on colder days, too, when customers can duck inside and spread out in the spacious, high-ceilinged rooms covered in traditional Bavarian woodcarvings.

There’s a lot of history at this beer hall/garden/restaurant, so patrons at Augustinerkeller will not only leave with an excellent buzz and full tummies, but with a deeper cultural understanding, too.

...well, at least the first two.

Tip from Jonah:

The Augustiner brewery is particularly known for its Helles brew, a special type of lager beer extremely popular with people in the know. Order a liter of it and become an expert yourself.

Beer Halls in Germany = awesome
Jody P. Dec 11, 2012
I love going to beer halls in Germany (and Austria!) because it is such a unique experience and Augustinerkeller is no different. The inside looks like what you'd see in a movie - long benches and tiny waitresses carrying several one liter beers in each hand. Not to mention lots and lots of delicious bavarian food. I was there in the summertime so it was nice outside and they have a great beer garden at augustinerkeller. The garden is huge and has tons of trees and picnic tables so you can enjoy your food and beer outdoors. Definitely a fun beer hall.

This is the oldest beer garden I think, and their beer has won twice as the best beer in Germany, so I had to check it out last time. Their beer garden is big, well shaded, and the prices are cheaper than the Chinese Tower. It's another locals spot in the beer garden category, and again a chill place to drink outside. We went inside in the evening, and it was just as lively as the Hoftbrauhaus, just as big too, but a little bit more authentic somehow. It was during the release of their stronger beer that gets your faded fast, so things got pretty blurry... BUT we were a big group, and had a really fun time, and we all got home alright.
