"TRUE STORIES" Munich Local Custom Tip by LysDor

Munich Local Customs: 179 reviews and 181 photos


Almost everything you have heard about Munich is true. First of all, Müncheners are delightfully jolly, they eat hearty food, and they drink beer with breakfast. Then, when it comes to funny hats, Bavaria leads the world: Mid-afternoon, you'll see respectable middle-aged men in the beer hall wearing Alpine hats with what looks like a huge shaving brush sticking up at the back. And, yes, they do sway to the music of the oompah bands, and they do clash giant beer steins together. In fact, for once, everything the tourist board has been telling you is accurate.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
