Cirkuswiese is one of the less busy beer gardens in Munich, situated next to the “Wiesn” where the Oktoberfest takes place. The beer garden is owned by the Hacker-Pschorr Bräuhaus which operates a beer hall, restaurant and a “Wirtsgarten” situated over the road.
Cirkuswiese is suffering from years of neglect despite the fact that it has been managed by the Hacker-Pschorr Bräuhaus since recent years. While the beer garden is closed, the gate remains open which attracts the occasional lone office worker to sit down with a lunch pack or read a newspaper.
Cirkuswiese has no regular opening times. During the summer in 2010 it was not open at all. Looking back on prior years, food and beer stall will open during the Oktoberfest and fresh roasted chicken (Hendl) will be sold in the beer garden. Given a bit of renovation and its central location amongst office blocks and residential apartments, Cirkuswiese could surely be reinvigorated as a popular beer garden location again, especially during lunchtime.
