One of Munich's classic beer halls, this place is charged in the evenings with red-faced, ale-infused hilarity, with Alpine whoops accompanying the rabble-rousing oompah band. The Weisswurst (veal sausage) here sets the standard for the rest to aspire to; sluice down a pair with the unsurpassed Schneider Weissbier, but only before noon. Understandably very popular and reservations are recommended after 7pm.
