When visiting Windischeschenbach or Neuhaus you should not miss to stop at a "Zoiglstub’n" (a kind of private pub). A "Zoiglstern" (a wooden star) hanging from the wall of a house or over a door tells you: "Here you will find Zoiglbeer, a good and solid Brotzeit (cold platter) as well as sociability and a jovial atmosphere - the well-known "Bavarian Gemütlichkeit".Traditionally the living room and the kitchen were "transformed" into a Zoiglstub’n for one weekend to serve home-brewed Zoiglbeer and Brotzeiten (cold platters). Today a Zoiglstub’n looks more like a little pub. Nevertheless, the traditional character and the joviality and good nature have been remained, due to the fact that Zoiglstub’n are still rather small and in no way designed to attract mass tourism or to make a lot of money. Sometimes it even happens that guests find themselves enjoying their Zoiglbeer in the kitchen or another room in the house of the owner of the Zoiglstub’n, because there is no more room in the Zoiglstub’n.This results in a jovial and cozy atmosphere, which is enhanced by the fact that you can meet true Oberpfälzer originals here. It happens rather often that longtime residents of Windischeschenbach or Neuhaus take their „Quetsche“ (a kind of accordeon). Then you can enjoy – or even sing along to – true bavarian music.The fact that Zoigl is not designed for big profit can best be seen in the prices: the prices for half a litre of Zoiglbeer and cold and warm Brotzeiten are far lower than in a regular restaurant. In combination with the fact that the portions are big and that you get real specialities from the Oberpfalz, this is a good reason for visiting a Zoiglstub’n.P.S.: You think that enjoying too much Zoiglbeer could be bad for your health? Totally wrong! Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers already knew a traditional medicine: The three-day Zoigl-cure! Prost!
