The Hofbrauhaus-Keller is an 850 years old property belonging to the Hofbrauhaus brewery in Freising. Hofbrauhaus-Keller in Freising has no connection to Hofbräuhaus or Hofbräukeller in Munich. Hofbrauhaus-Keller is located at the Lankesberg, a small hill close to the Freising city centre in a quite and residential area, approximately 43km north of central Munich.
The Hofbrauhaus-Keller in Freising was originally a storage for cooling beer during the warm summer months. The building has a similar architecture as the brewery which is located nearby. In recent years the beer garden was managed by a leaseholder who discouraged the Bavarian tradition to permit guests to bring their own food, which caused many locals to boycott the beer garden. In 2010 the new leaseholder, Peter Sonnauer, brought the traditional beer garden concept back to life and the Hofbrauhaus-Keller Freising immediately regained its popularity amongst the people of Freising. There are 650 seats in the self-serviced area of the beer garden and 120 seats on a serviced terrace on the opposite side of the main building in addition to a restaurant and hall inside the building which can be booked for special events.
The beer garden opens everyday at 10.30am.
