Always keeping an eye on people coming and going

When you enter the Augustiner-Keller through the main entrance, the hall quasi welcomes you. It is the entrance, the distributor to all rooms and, at the same time, a guest room itself.

An unpretentious but lively place.
Some guests may like it here in particular because from the hall they can always see who is coming and going.

By the way

Until 1891, the "Bierochse" (beer ox) turned in circles in today's hall. By continuously trotting in circles, it used ropes and a winch system to transport the summer beer stored deep in the cellar up to the top. During its lifetime, the ox was an attraction for many Munich residents who liked to watch it doing its job. With one, two or three measures, of course, but with each measure, everything became more amusing.
