This place is one of my favorite places in the world to drink. Amazing cellar atmosphere with great ambiance. The beers are some of Germany’s finest, especially the Weissbiers. It didn’t hurt that there was a sexy 20ish waitress with huge cans serving us. If Jehova spoke to me right now and told me that I could only visit one beer spot before being condemned, I would choose Weihenstephaner. Update: roll me in here on my death bed. Pure heavenly bliss. Beautiful beer garden, kick ass cellar restaurant, and best beer on earth.
Great place, fantastic ambiance, amazing food, exceptional beer. Beer is very nicely priced and the food is a little bit expensive, but it’s all worth it. And the hike up the hill is pretty, and it overlooks the majority of the town.
I used to go here a lot when I was in Munich often. They have been brewing beer here since the year 725 making it the oldest brewery in the world. Here, in the middle of the campus of the Chair for Brewery Technology and in the immediate vicinity of the world’s oldest brewery you will also find yourself at the veritable origin of beer. A meca for beer lovers for sure. Food and fun for all.
December 2011. For anyone traveling via Munich airport, if you don’t spend your last night in Freising and climb the hill to Weihenstephan, than shame on you! That’s precisely what we did on our last night in Germany, and we couldn’t have been happier. This place is amazing. With a great view of the town and a warm, welcoming environment, you simply can’t beat sipping on the awesome Weihenstephaner offerings just steps from their kettles and munching on the savory regionally classic meals. It was a bit pricey, but well worth it, and I’ll go back in a second next time we make the trek to Bavaria. (Brewery #570)
I stopped in on the way to Munich, a nice walk from the train station. The restaurant is very nice, traditional bavarian specialties, and all the different Weihenstephan beer styles available fresh from the brewery.
We visited here for lunch (17/1/14), the restaurant was was quite busy, but we found a free table by the window. The service was prompt and friendly. All the beers were available, which allowed me a few new rates! The food was exceptional, typically Bavarian, i had the schweinehaxe, which was as big as the dinner plate it arrived on, washed down with the dark wheat beer, it was perfect. The bill for the meal and beer for 4 people came to less than 70€, which i think is a bargain.
The restaurant & biergarten is situated within a university campus. We first had a couple of beers at the biergarten. It feels like it is situated in a forest with lots of greenery around you. Here they have the selfservice option. Upon relishing few beers, we decided to try the restaurant. The ambiance in here is rustic & traditional. The service was spot on offering good recommendations. As for selection, you get their whole range here. Unfortunately the Vitus was served in bottle. The food was yummy & served in large portions. We had an excellent time here & spent almost the whole afternoon. Well worth the detour from Munich to enjoy a lovely walk, fine beers & food.
