What is probably Munich’s smallest museum with a high experience value offers its visitors an amusing glance at the history of the legendary coffee castle from its opening on January 1, 1888 to the end of World War II. With its 20 splendid festive halls, the palace cafe attracted guests from all over the world until December 1944. Historical documents and passed-down stories surround the blaze of glory of the grand coffee house era with boulevard cafe, world-renowned musicians and “the Dance on the Volcano”.

The entrance to the museum is located in the palm tree garden of Cafe Luitpold.
