Located in Munich's newspaper publishing district and near Sendlinger Tor, Altes Hackerhaus has a long history involving two of the City's most renowned beer producing families, the Hackers and the Pschorrs. An entire wall in the restaurant is dedicated to the family tree, dating back to 1738 when the first Hackerhaus was founded. The "Altes" ("Old") in the name is no false claim, in this case. Highlights include a small but comfortable interior courtyard beer garden, and an outstanding restaurant serving excellent Bavarian fare. Although average by Munich high standards, Altes Hackerhaus benefits from its proximity to the Marienplatz (just a few blocks away) and easy access from the nearby U-Bahn stop at Sendlinger Tor. This old Hackerhaus gets 3 beers.
