The Münchner Haupt’ is short for Königlich Privilegierte Hauptschützengesellschaft München (The Main Royal Privileged Marksem Society Munich), which was founded in 1406. Since 1893, this club's headquater is located on a large estate in Mittersendling. The Münchner Haupt' beer garden is next to the main building within this estate. Older residentes may remember the beer garden location simply by the name of Schießstätte (shooting range).
The beer garden has 2,000 seats on old-fashioned wooden tables that are fixed to the ground. Guests can enjoy a beer in the sun while those who prefer will find a place in the shade below one of the large chestnut trees.
Every Sunday from 5pm a Bavarian band performs on a small stage and guests are welcome to dance to the music.
A unique feature of the beer garden is the singing landlady, Gigi Pfundmair, a professional opera singer who performs every second Thursday (inside the restaurant) and Sundays in the beer garden (depending on the weather). Beside theatre music, Gigi also sings Bavarian songs and Schlager (light pop tunes).
The food stalls concentrates on traditional Bavarian meals and snacks. The price of the Kaltenberg Helles (lager) is €6.50 p/Maß.
