  • small museum in a typical home-Bavarian brewery, once you can make different types of tickets with more or less things to see even if you don't understand who and what controls it, the path is rather difficult for non-existent signs, salt more or less attractive with more or less historical artefacts to end they would have to offer a small beer (included in the entrance ticket) but we only saw her go away for very little professionalism of the attendants.

  • I left from Naples in the company of five other couples, headed to Munich for Oktoberfest. Wonderful party, ruined by Magellan Club organization. Deceived because uninformed about the sailing from Naples scheduled at 19, took place with a shuttle bus to Rome, then to Monaco. In nightmare, as small and uncomfortable minibus for 3.5 hours cramped like sardines. The Odyssey continues to Monaco with infinite stages for a total of 16 hours. To finish with dinner booked two days before at a cost of € 25 for a pitcher of beer and a ham hocks inedible. Avoid Magellan organization.

  • 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.
