As the pub was mere steps from the Marienplatz right in the heart of the tourist district, I expected to pay through the nose for my drink. What a pleasant surprise it was to be presented with a bill for just three Euros. When I told the lovely serving fraulein that a pint of crap lager cost six Euros in Paris she simply smiled and said "Here in Bavaria everything is better. And the beer is the best." I was really starting to like this country.
