A biergarten is something typically German. A biergarten is an outdoor area in which beer, other drinks, and local food are served. Biergarten originated in Southern Germany. The most common beer is Bavaria. Biergartens in Germany were developed in the kingdom of Bavaria in the 19th century, during which dark lager beer was predominant. The term "beer garden" (Biergarten) has become a generic term for open-air establishments where beer is served. Many countries have such establishments. The characteristics of a traditional biergarten include trees (no sun umbrellas), wooden benches (no plastic garden chairs), gravel bed (no street pavement), and solid meals (no fast food). The largest traditional biergarten in the world is the Hirschgarten in Munich, which seats 8,000 people.
The Hotel PrincesaSofia pays homage to these German terraces to bring the most traditional Bavarian flavour to everyone in Barcelona. They play live music and serve typical Bavarian dishes. The garden is decorated in German style and the waiters and waitresses wear traditional costumes. All this makes it the only terrace in Barcelona that recreates an original outdoor biergarten like they have in Germany.
With the slogan 200% German, the biergarten celebrates its eighth season. All the products they serve are imported. This means you get the best beer, real sausages, the original wienerschnitzel and much more. Because of this, more and more people come to the biergarten.
When you are not German is it also nice to visit this place. You can try dishes from another country. It is a real experience when you haven´t tried it before. Also when you are a sport fan, this is a perfect location to go to. They broadcast many games, for example the champions league, the Olympic games and more.
The Biergarten is open every day from April to October, from 1 pm until midnight.
