In good company
Guests come - guests go ...
... to be happy to come back. Nobody has stayed overnight in the Bratwurst Glöckl, at most that from time to time someone was allowed to spend the night next to the beech wood stove due to the lack of an organized retreat in their own bed. However, many of our guests not only appreciate our traditional Bavarian cuisine, but also the real inn tradition, which is over 130 years old, and have remained loyal regulars.
A few thousand names of well-known and unknown Munich residents and foreigners have also remained in the restaurant's three guest books, which today not only document more than 120 years of Bratwurst Glöckl history, but also represent 120 years of Munich city history. The Bratwurst Glöckl has always been a meeting point for "outstanding personalities from theater, music, science, literature, painting and the nobility ...", as they would have said at the time Bratwurst Glöckl was founded in Munich in 1893 - or as we say today: the "Celebrities".
Unfortunately, not all prominent Bratwurst Glöckl guests are recorded in the books: On the one hand, it is mostly left to chance that a well-known artist or politician is noticed in the crowd at Bratwurst Glöckl, only to be asked by the landlord to make an entry in the guest book; on the other hand, there are always people like Helmut Qualtinger or Leonard Bernstein who don't mind pork sausage, but hate guest books like the plague.
Around 360 personalities who are well known to this day could be read from the pages of the past hundred years, who enjoyed the Bratwurst Glöckl and who were immortalized with their signature as a memory. Other sources such as letters, newspapers and chronicles have completed this list.
The morning pint of the "Ochsensepp"
The Bavarian Justice Minister Dr. In 1951 Josef Müller marched through the city as a good Catholic at the great Munich Corpus Christi procession behind the Holy of Holies, but disappeared without a trace after Cardinal Faulhaber's final blessing. The police were put on high alert because the day before there was a serious threat of murder and assassination against Dr. Müller, the former Nazi resistance activist, confidante of Admiral Canaris and a founding member of the CSU. The large manhunt for the Bavarian Minister of Justice was unsuccessful until the Ochsensepp showed up safe and sound at home in the evening.
However, in view of the presence of the police stationed for his protection, he quickly lost his good mood. It wasn't until the next day that he solved the riddle of his mysterious disappearance in the following official declaration: “On Corpus Christi day I went to the procession, then, as is customary in the area, for a morning pint, and when you realize that I was unreachable, I went to the Bratwurst Glöckl. Incidentally, I will not be impressed by such fantasy news in the future either. "
For those unfamiliar with the area: “Going for a morning pint” is a term that has not been precisely defined in Munich.
Caroline of Monaco doesn't like Nuremberg sausages
A secret of the Monegasque dynasty that has been closely guarded to this day is now being revealed on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bratwurst Glöckl: Caroline von Monaco does not like Nuremberg sausages, she prefers to eat Viennese sausages!
These princely desires, which differed from the taste of the rest of the family, did not embarrass the kitchen of the Bratwurst Glöckl on September 7, 1972: For such emergencies and delusional aberrations, a few fresh Vienna sausages are always kept in the fridge of the Bratwurst Glöckl, which, however, on request at the risk of the guest - can also be served with sweet white sausage mustard or lingonberries, because: at the Bratwurst Glöckl every guest is a king, even if he is a princess!
In order to save the honor of the Principality of Monaco, however, it should be mentioned that Prince Rainer, Princess Gracia and Princess Stephanie each ate half a dozen bratwursts with cabbage with pleasure. And Prince Rainer even drank two pints.
Georg Queri - How a poet "paid" Glöckl in the Bratwurst
There was a long time in the life of Georg Queri (1879–1919), one of the most important Bavarian dialect poets, when he was not yet famous and accordingly earned little. In order not to have to go hungry and thirsty in his local pub, the Bratwurst Glöckl, he found two ways: he wrote for the guests and for the guest book, mostly under the pseudonym "Egidius Pfanzelter" and had his services rewarded with natural produce.
Or tarocked his bill together, which was mostly the case. Mainly the caricaturist and draftsman Olaf Gulbransson and the writer Ludwig Thoma were fleeced. It got tricky for Queri when he had tared in his white wine spritzer from his drinking buddies, but still lacked the money for the trip home to Starnberg. Then the landlord Georg Zehnter had to serve. If Georg Queri had bad luck in the game, he simply lay down on the leather sofa in the dining room and slept the sleep of the loser.
Secret message from Karl Valentin
Valentin researchers, scribes and cryptologists have been puzzling over six indecipherable lines from Karl Valentine, which he left in the guest book of Bratwurst Glöckl on October 9, 1936: Is it an unknown conversation between the bookbinder Wanninger and the construction company Meisel & Co. ? Is it the beginning of a piece that was never written? Or is it even deeper nonsense with a higher meaning par excellence?
The script puzzle has now been solved: Karl Valentin wrote “nothing at all”, he wrote fantasy words with fantasy letters and was devilishly happy to think that countless people would rack their brains about the deeper meaning of these lines.
Max Reger, the artists and the pigs
The composer Max Reger (1873–1916) was one of the regulars at Bratwurst Glöckl at the turn of the century, and from him comes the often quoted saying: "Artists and pigs have one thing in common: they are only appreciated when they are dead!"
When he said this is not known, but where, except in his Bratwurst Glöckl in front of a plate of freshly roasted pork sausage can a hungry artist come up with such a truth?
Beniamino Gigli and the Maibock
Beniamino Gigli, one of the greatest tenors of the last century, was in Munich in April 1950 to negotiate a planned concert and turned up one lunchtime at Bratwurst Glöckl. The two hundredweight man, always blessed with a good appetite, ordered a dozen bratwursts for starters and washed them down with a Maibock. For roast pork with potato dumplings, however, the waitress placed a normal light in front of the thirsty singer's throat. Gigli sipped it and put it back on her tray: “Not good, not good at all!” So Maibock was served again.
Although the Munich-based company did not enjoy a Gigli performance, the tenor instead enjoyed "numerous maybuck in the Bratwurst Glöckl, which the singer tasted excellently", as the evening newspaper stated at the time.
“6 sausages + beer” for Rostropovich
On April 1, 1968, four Russian-speaking men sat down at a table in the Bratwurst Glöckl. Without a word, one of the quartet handed the waitress a slip of paper that read: "6 sausages + beer". The guest was the ingenious cellist Mstislaw Rostropowitsch, who wanted to make sure that, given his poor knowledge of German, he would order the house specialty.
When Franz Josef Strauss was standing on the far left ...
The guest books of the Bratwurst Glöckl combine the most varied of characters: After Dieter Hildebrandt had eaten his pork sausage with cabbage on November 20, 1978, the landlord Gerhard Beck asked him to make a name for himself in the guest book. As luck would have it, the Bavarian Prime Minister had thanked the left side a few days beforehand for food and drink - for Dieter Hildebrandt this was really "the first opportunity to ignore FJS!"
