Cirkuswiese is one of the less busy beer gardens in Munich, situated next to the “Wiesn” where the Oktoberfest takes place. The beer garden is owned by the Hacker-Pschorr Bräuhaus which operates a beer hall, restaurant and a “Wirtsgarten” situated over the road.
Cirkuswiese is suffering from years of neglect despite the fact that it has been managed by the Hacker-Pschorr Bräuhaus since recently. While the beer garden is closed, the gate remains open which attracts the occasional lone office worker to sit down with a lunch pack or read a newspaper.
Cirkuswiese is usually open in the summer only when weather conditions are ideal and during the Oktoberfest. However, as of August 2010 the beer garden has so-far not opened for the season. This is surely a waste of unsold beer, as given a bit of renovation and its central location amongst office blocks and residential apartements, Cirkuswiese could surely become a popular beer garden again, especially during lunchtime.
