GRÜSS GOTT —
WELCOME TO THE BEER AND OKTOBERFEST MUSEUM

EXPERIENCE A UNIQUE FACET OF MUNICH CULTURE AND LIFE

THE MUSEUM
IN MUNICH'S
OLDEST HISTORIC TOWN HOUSE

A MONUMENT TO LIVING BEER CULTURE — AND SO MUCH MORE

AT NUMBER 2 IN STERNECKERSTRASSE; A QUAINT, WINDING LANE OFF TAL BETWEEN MARIENPLATZ AND ISARTOR, IS A HIDDEN JEWEL OF AUTHENTIC BAVARIAN TRADITION: MUNICH'S OLDEST TOWN HOUSE. TRACING ITS HISTORY BACK TO 1340 AND HOME TO MERCHANTS, CRAFTSMEN AND BURGHERS THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES, THE HERITAGE-PROTECTED BUILDING TODAY HOUSES PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS ON BEER AND ON THE OKTOBERFEST – TWO CORNERSTONES OF BAVARIAN CULTURE.

RENOVATION OF THE HOUSE AND MUSEUM WAS A LONG-STANDING DREAM FOR FERDINAND SCHMID, FORMER HEAD OF AUGUSTINER BREWERY AND NOW DIRECTOR OF THE EDITH-HABERLAND-WAGNER FOUNDATION. SEVEN YEARS WOULD PASS FROM THE FOUNDATION'S PURCHASE OF THE HOUSE TO THE OPENING OF THE MUSEUM IN SEPTEMBER 2005.

WELCOME TO THIS JEWEL OF LIVING TRADITION!

Die Lange Nacht der Münchner Museen 2014

Die Lange Nacht der Münchner Museen 2014

Gut 90 Münchner Museen, Sammlungen und Ausstellungshäuser laden ein zu nächtlichen Streifzügen bei Mondschein. In festlicher Atmosphäre kommen Sie in den Genuss zahlreicher Sonderaktionen: Kunstvermittlungsstationen, Führungen, Depotöffnungen, Vorträge, interaktive Installationen, Livemusik oder Performances werden zusätzlich zu den laufenden Ausstellungen angeboten. Nicht nur „unbeschriebene Blätter“ dürfen neugierig werden – auch routinierte Museumsgänger können noch so manches Geheimnis lüften: Was verbirgt sich hinter der Tempelfassade von Münchens ältestem Museum? Wie genau sahen „Gothic-Beauties“ als Schönheitsideal im Spätmittelalter aus? Was verraten...

MANNA FROM HEAVEN!)

THE BEER MUSEUM – BEER AND BREWING CULTURE FROM ANCIENT TIMES TO THE PRESENT DAY

A DRINK AS OLD
AS THE FIRST HUMAN SETTLEMENTS

BUT PERFECTED IN MUNICH

BEER HAS BEEN A CONSTANT COMPANION OF HUMANKIND SINCE THE TIME OF THE BABYLONIANS. THEY COOKED UP THEIR HOME BREW FROM FERMENTED BREAD AND WATER. MEDIEVAL MONASTERIES REFINED BEER BREWING AS A CRAFT AND A TRADITION. THE INTRODUCTION OF THE BEER PURITY LAW SET A FURTHER MILESTONE. THE ART OF BREWING REACHED PERFECTION IN THE INDUSTRIAL AGE. A HOST OF DOCUMENTS, TOOLS AND INVENTIONS ARE TESTIMONY TO THIS LIVING HISTORY. AND MUNICH AND BAVARIA ARE PROUD TO CLAIM THEIR HERITAGE AS THE CRADLE WHERE BEER DEVELOPED INTO THE QUALITY BEVERAGE WE KNOW TODAY.

WHERE WOULD MUNICH
BE WITHOUT THE 'WIESN'?

THE OKTOBERFEST MUSEUM – FROM ROYAL WEDDING TO THE BIGGEST PARTY IN THE WORLD

O’ZAPFT IS! — KEG’S TAPPED!
HERE'S TO A PEACEFUL FESTIVAL!

HOMAGE TO MUNICH'S WORLD-FAMOUS LANDMARK

BACK IN 1810, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT A HORSE RACE HELD TO MARK THE WEDDING OF CROWN PRINCE LUDWIG I AND PRINCESS THERESA OF SAXONY HILDBURGHAUSEN WOULD DEVELOP THROUGH 200 YEARS INTO WHAT WE KNOW TODAY AS THE OKTOBERFEST! IN THOSE DAYS THE EVENT WAS DESIGNED TO ENCOURAGE A FEELING OF SOLIDARITY AMONG THE DIFFERENT PEOPLES IN A STILL VERY YOUNG KINGDOM. TODAY THE OKTOBERFEST ATTRACTS MILLIONS OF VISITORS YEAR AFTER YEAR – WITH ITS FAIRGROUND AND BOOTHS, ITS UNIQUE ATMOSPHERE AND, OF COURSE, ITS BEER. LET OUR MUSEUM TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY THROUGH THE HISTORY OF THIS WORLD FAMOUS EVENT THAT TODAY IS SYNONYMOUS WITH MUNICH AND ITS BEER – AND NOT ONLY IN OCTOBER.
