The Original


One of our wonderful Munich traditions is undoubtedly the Strong Beer Season! Directly after Carneval, the mountain once again calls for the original strong beer festival at Paulaner am Nockherberg. For three weeks, you can enjoy the drinkable PAULANER Salvator and delicious strong beer classics from the kitchen of Florian Lechner and his team.

And the legendary Oktoberfest band DIE KIRCHDORFER® will ensure a real Oktoberfest atmosphere and unforgettable evenings!
