The Hofbräuhaus song was composed by Wilhelm “Wiga” Gabriel (1897–1964) from Berlin. The legend reports that Gabriel thought of the melody to the text of his friend Klaus Siegfried Richter from Hindelang in the Berlin Café am Zoo. Since the composer did not have any paper at hand, he is said to have simply noted the notes on the title page of the Berliner Illustrierte. The beginning of the melody, however, shows similarities with the Munich city anthem Solang the old Peter. Gabriel is said to have used this folk song for the composition. The Hofbräuhaus song, musically a waltz, was performed for the first time in 1936 at the Dürkheim sausage market.
