Augustiner Sraulltuiutien gfqruiulet 132S Augustiner Gaststatten Munich In the historical building at the Neuhauser Street Augustiner beer was brewed up until 1885. It still looks much the same today as it did at the turn of the century and now houses the Augustiner Brewery’s main tavern, with restaurant, beer hall and tradition-filled rooms for festivities of all kinds. Augustiner’s famous “Edelstoff” is served here fresh from the tap. The Augustiner kitchen team understands how to make every meal a feast for the eye as well as the taste buds. AUGUSTINER in Munich’s pedestrian area: the one place where every visit is a special experience. Augustiner Gaststatten Munich Pachter: Manfred Vollmer Neuhauser StraBe 16, Pedestrian Area, D-8000 Munich 2 Telephone (089) 551 99 257 or 551 99 258 Welcome to the Oktoberfest! “Ozapft is!” – “It’s tapped!” -exclaims the Lord Mayor of Munich after broaching the first barrel of beer to open the world-famous Oktoberfest.
Then for sixteen days every year the citizens of Munich and with them hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world flock to the Bavaria statue. Last year the some 5.7 million guests consumed 720,139 barbecued chickens, 72 oxen roasted whole on the spit, 320,338 pairs of pork sausages and gallons of beer, of which 14,661 gallons were nonalcoholic. But. eating and drinking well is not everything. Roller coasters, merry-go-rounds, bumper cars – to mention but a few of the many attractions – provide the background to the proverbial Oktoberfest merriment. The spirited music of brass bands in the beer tents is just as much a part of the Oktoberfest atmosphere as the smell of burnt almonds, Turkish halvah and gingerbread hearts.
The Oktoberfest – connoisseurs say – is something you cannot describe, you have to experience it for yourself. So, “Off we go to the Oktoberfest!” – and “Cheers, neighbor!” INFORMATION, PROSPECTUSES, ACCOMMODATIONS: City of Munich Tourist Office, Postfach, 8000 Munich 1.
