The biggest fire tongs punch of the world
On Friday the 6th of December the largest fire tongs punch of the world began at 11:00 clock. The walls of the Isartor are then used as a screen for the ever-popular Dr. Pfeiffer, aka Heinz Rühmann, who gets to know the effect of the fine winter beverage in the cult film "Die Feuerzangenbowle". While " The Feuerzangenbowle " is projected as a silent film at the Isartor, while the biggest fire tongs punch gets prepared in the courtyard.
It is always a very special moment when the first sugar is burned in 3.5 meters height, in the courtyard of the Isartor. Soaked in the finest rum, the sugar melts, caramelizes and enters the hot red wine in the boiler. On the 6th of December at 17:00 clock, it was time again : The audience enjoyed the sight of the glowing red-gold flames on the tank and a little later the first sip from the largest fire tongs punch of the world.
From then on for four weeks (until January 06, 2014) the fire tongs punch is prepared in the nearly 3.4 m tall, red-gold copper kettle. Christmas food, a nice atmosphere and the finest fire tongs punch in the nostalgic ambiance of the Isartor!
