The Altenauer Dorfwirt

The pub can seat 70. "We often get over 100 people to our monthly musical Stammtisch", explains landlord Florian Spiegelberger. Together with his wife Izabella, and the employees, he has his hands full. Setting out additional chairs, serving beer and cooking roast pork.

A place to meet in the village at last

The fact that the pub exists at all is owed to the people of Altenau themselves. The inhabitants of the small community in Upper Bavaria brought their pub back to life in 2014, with a lot of passion and dedication to the cause. When the building was put up for sale in the summer of 2012, after more than ten years of standing empty, the people of Altenau took action: They founded a co-operative, invested the necessary capital... and a massive 22,000 hours of voluntary work to restore the building.

Now, especially on Saturday evenings, the villagers come together for a beer or a wine, and enjoy the fresh cooking of chef Florian: The menu is short but of a very high quality. The ingredients are sourced from the local region wherever possible.

Music encouraged!

Shortly after the opening, the Altenauer Dorfwirt consciously called the pub a "music-friendly establishment". Singers and musicians are welcome; spontaneous singing and music-making is encouraged. The village hall, which lies next door, has been given a new lease of life with theatre productions, concerts, balls and family parties.

The inhabitants like local life. People greet each other as they pass; visitors soon feel welcome. The landlord Spiegelberger smiles as he explains: "Sometimes our guests sit in the beer garden... and whilst the adults enjoy the cooling shade of the old horse chestnut trees, the children go to the neighbouring tables. They play with other children of a similar age, watch the cows. And yes, they also want to help out on the farm."

It is no surprise that lots of city dwellers keep coming back to the Ammer. After all, life is good there!
