[Photo Journal] Ancient Biergarten In Munich

Alten Wirt Obermenzing (circa 1442)


Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

One of the greatest things about Munich is their biergarten, especially ones that are centuries old, similar to this one that my librarian friend from the International Youth Library, has brought us to (international research fellows or stippis as we are fondly called) for late lunch/early dinner.

Based on the restaurant’s website, this place has been in existence since the 1400s, making this the oldest inn/pub/biergarten in Munich!

Another thing that makes this place special is this room where you can see all these antlers on display.

Clearly, the owners of this inn enjoy animal hunting?

It was pretty eerie being in this room filled with stuffed animals on the walls. This room is called Jagdstube (roughly translates to hunting room).

This is Munich’s famous leberkase – kind of like a meatloaf with fried egg. Delicious.

Our group shared this dessert: Dampfnudel mit Vanillesauce.

This is, hands down, my favourite: Hausgemachter Kaiserschmarrn mit Apfelmus, otherwise known as Emperor’s Bullshit. 🙂

I truly miss this bunch of cool nerds at the library. 🙂

Until we all meet again, beautiful people!
