Text:
“So lang dadrunt am Platzl no’ steht das Hofbräuhaus

(So long as the Hofbräuhaus stands there in the square
the hospitality of the people of Munich will last.)

Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Münchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city.
