Bike Touring Highlight
... you don't have to write much about the Kugler Alm: It is a popular destination in the south of Munich. A Bavarian inn (recently renovated) with a terrace and occasional brass music in the beer garden. Food and drinks are delicious. And the Auszog'nen (= lard noodle) are always worth a culinary sin. :-)

Extremely popular excursion destination and beer garden in the south of Munich. There are the best "Auszognen" far and wide.Background according to the information board on site:
The Alm goes back to the first beer being served to water and forest workers, at the very beginning of 1895 at a construction hut. The lack of a bar license was circumvented - even then creatively - by founding a "Consum Association". In 1898/1900, Xaver Kugler, who gave it its name, leased / bought the Alm. After "upgrading" to a real inn, the business developed into a popular excursion destination. According to sources in the Munich city archives, the press even spoke of the "largest alpine pasture in the world" in 1930, after a beer and dance hall for 2000 people was built in 1925 and the beer garden was generously expanded. In the decades after Kugler's death in 1935, things got quieter around the Alm. But since 1970 it has been climbing steeply again, and the Kugler Alm is a popular destination for near and far, especially for cyclists because the Alm is conveniently located north-south -Rad-Highway between Giesing and Oberhaching through the beautiful Perlacher Forest.
