A passion for perfection

What could be better than enjoying a wonderfully filling meal in great company? Not a lot, we believe! This is why do everything we can to make your visit to the Augustiner am Platzl nothing short of perfect.


Munich. There’s no place like home

Having lived in the Munich area for many years, our family has fallen in love with Bavarian culture. Together with our children Paula and Julius, we’ve adopted this place as our cherished home.

A warm-hearted team

We’re incredibly passionate people! Our unique qualities make us all a little different, but we’re united by a great passion for what we do. Working as a team really brings our warm-heartedness out!

A born restaurateur


Oliver grew up in a musical parish house. He discovered his deep passion for hospitality through his French mother, as well as through organising numerous community events.

Oliver trained in hotels, as well as working as Maître Restaurateur at the Bailliage de Haute-Bavière of the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs International Association of Gastronomy. He has also worked internationally, including for private events for celebrities, successfully managing the high-end Villa Merton restaurant in Frankfurt, and organising VIP hospitality at the World Expo 2000 and the World Cup.

With almost 30 years of hotel and hospitality experience under his belt, Oliver is now finally realising his lifelong dream of running an Augustiner tavern!

Oliver’s mantra: If you have a passion, you’ve got to make it burn!

Traditional tavern culture

Respecting tradition while venturing onto untrodden paths

Taverns are places for meeting people and socialising, while enjoying good food and great music. The philosophy of the Augustiner am Platzl is built upon the foundations of tradition, first-class quality and a future-oriented focus, the cornerstones of which are our passion for hospitality and our meticulous attention to detail. So, come on in, make yourselves at home, and enjoy some great food and wine! What could be any easier?

Munich’s famous joie de vivre

Augustiner am Platzl is a home from home in the centre of the city. Our tavern is a meeting place – a place to enjoy the finest beer and delicious Bavarian tavern fare amongst friends. This is where you can soak up authentic Bavarian beer culture – much to the delight of every beer fan!

The heart and soul of our team


Barbara grew up in Düsseldorf, in a family of hoteliers.

She completed her training at the renowned Breidenbacher Hof hotel in Düsseldorf before working in the catering industry for a number of years, where she successfully made her name by organising numerous large-scale events in Germany and internationally.

More recently, Barbara was part of the team at the Aumeister tavern in Munich’s English Garden where she became truly immersed in traditional tavern culture. Today, Barbara’s typical Rheinland cheer makes her the natural hostess at the Platzl.

Her charisma and bubbly persona are real assets to the tavern and our team!

We look forward to seeing you!

Social gatherings


The Stammtisch tradition is a custom we cherish at the Augustiner am Platzl.

The word ‘Stammtisch’ refers to both a group of people who meet regularly at the tavern and to the large, round table around which these groups gather.

These regular Stammtisch get-togethers often revolve around a social gathering, an evening of card games, or a group that meets to discuss specific interests, such as politics or philosophy. In the past, being invited to join a Stammtisch was definitely an honour as they tended to be quite closed circles.

Stammtisch meetings today though are all about a sense of belonging, familiar faces and a sharing in common interests and passions – values that we’re seeing today in the modern style of Stammtisch.

The Stammtisch tradition has strong roots in Munich and Bavaria – a custom that we are proud to maintain at the Augustiner am Platzl!
