HALLOWED HALLS: The Beer and Oktoberfest museum is located in Munich's oldest residential building.
You’ll find the Museum Stüberl, a small bar, on the ground floor. For a bargain 4€ you can combine your museum ticket with a voucher for a beer and a snack and the Stüberl. The museum is located in Munich’s oldest surviving residential house (1340), a worthy tourist attraction in its own right.
It’s a multi-storey rabbit warren with low ceilings, exposed brickwork and rickety stairs. The staircase on the right of the house is one of a kind. Dubbed the “Stairway to Heaven” it’s narrow, straight and reaches right to the top of the house.
Location: The Beer and Oktoberfest Museum (German: Bier und Oktoberfest Museum) is at Sternecker Strasse 2. It’s down a side street between Marienplatz and Isartor.
