The Bürgerbräu Keller was a large beer hall located in Munich, Germany. Opened in 1885, it was one of the largest beer halls of the Bürgerliches Brauhaus Company. The Bürgerbräu Keller was the location from which Adolf Hitler launched the Beer Hall Putsch in November 1923; sixteen years later, in 1939, the building was the location of the attempted assassination of Hitler and other Third Reich leaders by Georg Elser.
From 1920 to 1923, the Bürgerbräukeller or Bürgerliches Brauhaus was one of the main gathering places of the Nazi party. There, on 8 November 1923, Hitler launched the Beer Hall Putsch. After Hitler seized power in 1933, he commemorated each anniversary on the night of 8 November with an address to the Alte Kämpfer (Old Fighters) in the great hall of the Bürgerbräukeller. The following day, a re-enactment was conducted of the march through the streets of Munich from the Bürgerbräukeller to Königsplatz. The event climaxed with a ceremony at the Feldherrnhalle to revere the 16'blood martyrs' of the Beer Hall Putsch.
In 1939, a time bomb concealed inside a pillar in the Bürgerbräukeller was set to go off during Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch address on 8 November. The bomb exploded, killing eight people and injuring 57, but Hitler had cut short his speech and had already left.
