The schnitzel house

Weißer Hase on the Moritzplatz in Augsburg

Traditions are infinitely valuable and enrich our fast-moving times with ideas and warmth. The history of the city of Augsburg goes back over 2000 years, and you can feel and experience it everywhere. And our restaurant on the Moritzplatz, the “Weißer Hase”, is part of this history.

It opened 200 years ago as the “Däumlingsches Kaffeehaus” in the Annastraße; later it became the “Café Schachameyer”, in 1989 it changed to the pub “Weißer Hase” and later received even more names. After its takeover by the Seferi brothers in 2011, the restaurant is now called by the name that links it to the famous Augsburg beer: “Weißer Hase”.

In 2016 there was a kitchen fire, followed by the opportunity to resettle the “Weißer Hase” in the heart of Augsburg. The Weißer Hase found a new home in the rooms of the former Capitol, right in the historic centre of Augsburg.

No sooner said than done. After extensive renovation work we can now welcome you on the Moritzplatz, right by the Merkurbrunnen fountain. Enjoy our traditional Bavarian cuisine and the best beers in town. In addition, we place a great value on sustainability and an individual gastronomic experience. In order to maintain the quality of our menu, we always work closely together with producers and suppliers from the surrounding area. And you can taste it!

An address with over 400 years of tradition

Weißer Hase in the Capitol – Schnitzel House

The history of the city of Augsburg shows that our house on the Moritzplatz was a desirable property a good 400 years ago. Jakob Fugger the Elder sold it to a brewer who probably also served food. Up until 1851 it was the home of the “Goldene Löwe”, the brewery was then moved out.

From 1902 the pub was known as the “Gambrinus-Keller” and later did indeed move into the basement, while up above modern shops were the new feature of the inner city.

After the First World War, the cinema age began. The whole of Augsburg was attracted to the silver screen under the “Palast-Lichtspiele” logo. After the end of the silent film era, this city centre cinema called itself “Capitol”.

The cinema enchanted people up until 1999, and then it was all over. The name remained, but instead of James Bond and Julia Roberts you would now find a gastronomic mix of steaks and vegetarian dishes.

Today the Weißer Hase continues this old and honourable tradition – with genuine Augsburg Hasen Beer and classic treats: classic in style and yet quite contemporary.
