In many regions of Bavaria, a regular gathering at the inn is part and parcel of a nightly ritual. The regulars sit together – usually a group of co-workers or a society – and discuss everyday matters or their particular interests. When the conversation runs dry, they can always pick up a deck of cards, as in the Wirtshaus Osl in Bad Kötzing. A game of “Schafkopf” is a great way for regulars to spend a relaxing evening. In other places, people are entertained by typical Bavarian folk music. In the Altenauer Dorfwirt in Saulgrub, guests bring their instruments with them for a regular musical rendezvous and play on until late in the evening. And in the Schankwirtschaft Schanzenbräu in Nuremberg, guest tuck into tasty snacks and hearty roast dishes washed down with exceptional beer creations.
