  • Insight into the beer culture and the history of the largest still existing breweries in Munich are here. Sufficient size, not too much and not too little. A must: the apparent drinking beer in one of the most beautiful cellar pubs. Therefore, some experience. Conclusion: That the Munich trip makes complete

  • But it's like the seasons and not much beer: this is all the beer you can learn about the history of October. A good time to visit. Though the Museum has special or good quality beer, Nishi-you can taste the beer manufacturing process I don't know about the history, there was also a handful of I. Can you taste the beer all over the restaurant's half-day or so to think and you can enjoy a leisurely visit.

  • Speaking of Munich, synonymous with beer in town. The annual Oktoberfest beer lovers very Holy. But is a Munich Street further on competes with each beer breweries, retail beer halls and beer restaurant in the town, and not crowded Oktoberfest, this museum would be, exactly.

  • Best beers in town. Cozy place. It's perfect if you want to have few Munchen beers. Highly recommended if you are a tourist. Dark beer is amazing!
  • We went here during "Nacht der Museen". The way the visitor was guided was rather confusing and there are only a few, not so interesting things to have a look at. The most interesting part was the house itself which made someone feel like being in an earlier age. The restaurant looked quite inviting, though.
  • I love drinking here. One of the few places in Munich where you have a choice of what beer to drink. If you also book in advance they off a blind tasting of the big six Munchener breweries, which is a great way to determine your favourite
  • Very tiny museum, some interesting things to see. Did not try the food.
  • Bier- & Oktoberfest-Museum is interesting and not only for beer drinkers. I don’t drink alcohol and it was still great experience for me. Located in Munich’s oldest historic town house, it’s a hidden jewel and represents authentic Bavarian tradition. Tiny exhibition offers beer mugs and other Oktoberfest bits and pieces since early 1900s. You’ll also learn about the history of beer and see artifacts related to beer’s production. I got a feeling that this museum has a pretty strong focus on tourists coming to Munich from around the world. This is in no way a con, just my observation.
