If the names of Karl Valentin or Liesl Karlstadt mean something to you, then I probably wouldn't have to explain who Alois Hingerl is. And this is the crux of this story. It is steeped in Bavarian, or even Munich folklore and its humor does not reveal itself to the uninitiated. Bavaria is more than Lederhosen, Bier and Pretzels. "Ein Münchner im Himmel" plays with the quirks and idiosyncrasies of the Bavarian native, displaying them for all to see and laugh about. For as those who understand the culture will find themselves reflected in the story. It is a classic that is a must for those who truly know Bavaria and Munich.
