You will stay in a listed house, which is more than 400 years old, right in the heart of Munich’s historic city centre.

Located right around the corner of the world-renowned Viktualienmarkt and the historic Schrannenhalle and only a few walking minutes away from Marienplatz, Munich’s “living room”, as the square is affectionately called by locals.

The Blauer Bock is a house full of character that distinguishes itself pleasantly from uniform standards because of it.

Here Bavarian hospitality has taken root for centuries.

The historic ambience has been modernized over the course of time affectionately.

The 200 year old parquet floors in the lobby as well as many remaining details from past centuries will give you a whiff of history.

And where monks and knight used to live cosy rooms are provided, that are equipped with all the comfort that modernity has to offer.


Hospitable by tradition

Competent and motivated, keenly and personally we leave now stone unturned to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

After all, we want you to remember your stay kindly and we want you to come back willingly.

Plus, we want to improve every day.

We gladly accept, therefore, all useful criticism as well as any pleasant praise, and we are open for any suggestion you may have.


History

 

Yesterday

 

The oldest image depicting the set of houses at Sebastiansplatz 9 dates back from the year 1572. It is captioned “Saint Sebastian’s Chapel with built-on vestry at the Ebersberg monastery yard.” The Benedictine of Ebersberg were the landlords, as this set of houses served as their residence in the city.

 

After secularisation, the Huber family, with a tradition as publicans, assumed ownership of the open building and started in 1814 the pub “Blauer Bock”. It became the favourite venue of the waggoners from next door’s market.

Nowadays

 

During the course of the centuries, ownership of the house changed hands frequently. The pub turned into an inn, and the inn turned into a hotel. In 1914 the Schreiber family bought the house. They kept it for many generations, and ran the hotel for decades.

 

In the year 2002 the house was sold to the Gewofag, Munich’s residential building company steeped in tradition. Since 2008 the hotel is managed by the proprietors of the renowned gourmet-restaurant “Blauer Bock”, which is located in the same building. The hotel is still operated by its family-style with a personal touch, following the long-standing tradition.

Only a few steps and you will stroll with pleasure over the Viktualienmarkt – gourmet’s heaven!

One will find here a wide variety of fresh groceries and selected Specialties. At the other end you will find the parish church St. Peter’s.

Climb up the tower, the so called Old Peter, and enjoy the view over the city. By foehn wind enjoy the spectacular view to the Alps.

A couple of minutes away you will reach the Marienplatz. The new town hall of Munich is located here, and it is renowned for Europe’s largest Glockenspiel. The figures of the carillon depict parts of Munich’s history.

Make a detour to the Hofbräuhaus, the most famous pub of the world, and enjoy a typical Bavarian ”Brotzeit“, a snack consisting of cold cuts, bread, and cheese – of course over a vintage Bavarian “Maß” beer. F

rom there you can take a pleasant stroll back via the Kaufingerstrasse, Munich’s beloved shopping strip, stop at the Cathedral Church of Our Lady, the Frauenkirche, and continue to the Karlsplatz – or Stachus – as the locals prefer to call this square.

What do you have in mind: Museum or Theatre? The Old or the New Pinakothek, the Haus der Kunst, the Deutsche Museum, the Bavarian State Opera, the Munich Kammerspiele or the Residence Theatre – everything is located close by and easy to reach.

If you are up for a more sporty activity: take a stroll on the banks of the river Isar, jog around the English Garden, or take a swim at the Müllersche Volksbad, a magnificent spa and an art nouveau gem.

And if you are visiting us during the fifth season – the Oktoberfest, this Volksfest is the world’s largest fair of its kind, and it is only stops with the underground away.

If you need a break in-between: How about a cup of coffee in the afternoon? Please take a seat at our patio and enjoy a moment of quietness. Or you may want to let the day sink in with a cultivated drink at our well-assorted hotel bar.

As you like it, enjoy!
