Summer time is beer garden time.

But not everywhere in Munich will you be able to enjoy a refreshing beer in 2022.

The people of Pasing have to do without one of their most popular spots.

Munich – The traditional inn at Benedikterstrasse 35 has been undergoing renovations since the end of last year.

According to the website, the reopening should be in May.

But under the cozy chestnut trees there is still sadness.

Why?

When asked, the owners are contrite: “We know that the people of Pasing miss returning to their traditional house with a theater and beer garden.

The Prinzregent Garden is a popular meeting place in the district.

The Pasing clubs also want their inn back as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, we were not able to complete the renovation work in time for the beer garden season," explains Oliver Lentz, Sales Manager of the König Ludwig Schlossbrauerei Kaltenberg.

Munich-Pasing: Beer garden is feeling the effects of the global crises

The adversities and challenges of the time would have simply thwarted the original opening plan.

“We lack building materials, craftsmen and an innkeeper,” Lentz sums up the problems.

And further: "We are also affected by material shortages, a lack of craftsmen and staff problems in the catering trade." For example, the price of the ordered parquet floor has changed several times.

In the end it could no longer be delivered at all.

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon at the moment.

As reported by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) in February, construction companies across Europe are still struggling with material shortages and significant price increases.

The producer prices for individual building materials such as wood and steel rose on average in 2021 more than at any time since the survey began in 1949. Timber, for example, rose by 61.4 percent.

Beer garden problem after lack of material: Federal Cartel Office intervenes

Incidentally, the Federal Cartel Office has long since called attention to this development.

There is a suspicion of free-rider effects and illegal price fixing:

The sales manager recalls that it was also difficult to get the specialist staff who renewed the electrical system in the Prinzregent Garden.

Another major challenge: finding suitable operators.

"We want to find the right innkeepers who can bridge the gap between tradition and cosiness 2.0," explains Oliver Lentz.

The operators need the necessary personnel for this.

Finding that is also not easy at the moment.

"Many innkeepers have withdrawn completely from the catering trade or oriented themselves differently."

Prinzregent Garden in Pasing: "Soon the heart of the district will be beating again"

According to the Federal Statistical Office, the loss of jobs during the lockdown months at the beginning of last year was particularly evident.

A bottom was reached in February 2021.

Pub establishments were particularly hard hit by the crisis.

From January to October 2021, they reduced almost a quarter of their staff (23.6 percent) compared to the same period last year.

That's still missing now.

But there is also good news for the people of Pasing.

"We are in the final talks and are very optimistic that we have found the right operators," reveals Lentz.

His promise: “Soon the heart of the district will be beating again.

We are doing everything we can to ensure that the Prinzregent Garden opens its doors again during the Oktoberfest.”
