|One stein might be enough
so we leave the center of Munich and are heading for the Englische
Garten and more specifically the Biergarten Chinesischer Turm
(beergarden Chinese tower), where tables are placed under
chestnut trees and nature lovers enjoy the sun with a light
normal beer or a Radler (half beer, half lemonade)
or a Russe (half wheat beer, half lemonade). Oompah bands
will often play famous beer songs, which will make you to
stand up and to sit down and to stand up... and to salute
with your stein to your neighbour.
In the early afternoon we will drive back home and on the
way we will have a last stop in the ancient monastery Andechs,
sitting high on a mountain overlooking the Ammersee. Monks
brew delicious beer and produce good cheese. Pilgrims and
beer aficionados are there to the thousands on a sunny day.
