Heimer Enten- und Hühnerbraterei

The home of delicious Heimer duck

In 2017, after 40 years at the Oktoberfest, the Heimer chicken stall announced a few changes: a new location, its own beer garden and Paulaner weissbier as a refreshing alternative to the Hacker festival beer. This is the perfect quiet spot to sit and relax without music.

What’s special: traditional family business

Heimer’s has fostered Bavarian cultural traditions for over 40 years. It is the home of the delicious Heimer duck and other Bavarian specialties. “Daheim – da Heimer” (“At home – at Heimer’s”) it says on the menu and above the door, and it’s true – the duck roaster has long been a second home for many regular guests at the Wiesn. After a modernization, Heimer’s now has a heated outdoor seating area with seated and standing spaces. The interior design of the traditional business has recently been pepped up, and the heated outdoor area now has a beer garden for visitors to enjoy.

The audience: families and long-standing locals

Heimer’s places enormous value on a personal and familiar rapport with its guests. It’s no surprise then that there are many regular guests who have stayed loyal to Heimer across the generations. You will meet families there, as well as long-standing Munich locals and business people. Since there is no music at the duck roastery, it is relatively quiet. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the food and a short break before diving back into the Wiesn festivities with renewed strength.

The menu: roast duck and chicken made following the family recipe

The Heimer duck roaster is particularly well-known for its crispy roast duck and chicken. This is prepared following the secret family recipe and freshly cooked on a spit. It is served with homemade sauce and typical Bavarian side dishes: potato dumplings and red cabbage. For those who prefer something less traditional, the menu also includes a selection of other poultry dishes. Vegetarians will also find themselves well-catered for. And for younger guests, there is also a kids’ menu. Alongside the Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest beer, Heimer’s also serves Paulaner weissbier.

Only here: Heimer spit-roasted duck

Landlord Ignaz Schmid thinks of the stall as “the last real duck and chicken roaster”. That’s because the poultry is not roasted in the oven, but on a spit. From there, it goes straight on the plate and is served with homemade sauce and side dishes. That’s what makes “Heimer duck” so famous in Munich and beyond.
