Hitler hangout: Hinterbrühl Beer Garden, Munich, Germany

Gasthof Hinterbrühl is a scenic restaurant and beer garden located on the banks of the Isar River, and is a very pleasant 20 or so minute walk from WaWi. Unfortunately, the beer garden was closed due to cold weather, but the restaurant was open, so we enjoyed a great meal and a few beers inside.

According to “The Beer Drinker’s Guide to Munich”, Hinterbrühl was a favorite hangout of Hitler, Göring, and Goebbels. In fact, after Göring committed suicide, his ashes, and those of ten other Nazi war criminals, were thrown into the stream that runs alongside the beer garden. However, there is no trace of any Nazi history in the restaurant – I never would have known about it if it wasn’t for the book.

While in Munich, we made a point to go to as many authentic beer gardens as possible, which often meant traveling outside of the tourist areas via public transportation. “The Beer Drinker’s Guide to Munich” by Larry Hawthorne was indispensable in helping us figure out which beer gardens were worth going to, and in showing us exactly how to get to them. Plus, it has coupons for free beer!!!
