Kids enjoy the "Gewitter" show at Spektakel.
Formerly Tannengarten (literally "Pine Garden") before recent renovations, this long-time restaurant and beer garden has been christened by new management to be "Spektakel Bayerisches Wirtshaus". Major improvements to the inside restaurant include a nightly "Gewitter" show complete with special effects (mostly flashing lights, rumbling thunder sound effects and flowing water). Not exactly something from DreamWorks, but still mildly entertaining. It's a definite improvement from before and we've upgraded Spektakel's rating in the 5th edition of The BDG2M accordingly. The beer garden is still inviting, with plenty of shade from mature chestnut trees (never were any pine trees that we knew of). Spektakel is today an oasis of open green space in the middle of a busy block of businesses and industrial buildings. Worth a visit, with an improving 3-beer rating.
