Why This Page Is Password Locked

The page is just for us Beer Gardeners on bg@mailman.berklix & Organisers on bg-org@mailman.berklix
  • To refer to when choosing & announcing a beer garden.
  • For long term group memory, ease of tracking.
  • In standardised format, to compare one BG with another.
  • For mouse pasting Directions into announcements.
  • We don't want marketing gloss.
  • We want negatives too, eg: persistent short measures, unfriendly staff, TV noise or whatever.
  • In our English language, not local German.
  • German indexes to German pages of individual beer gardens don't provide that.
  • Obviously anything that's wrong author & Organisers welcome corrections for.
  • But we organisers have NO time to check if things are still true, better or worse. We need beer gardeners to mail us change reports. We've No time to check, We're not Paid to check, There's no adverts to pay us,
  • I regret the page is locked against public access, years back it didn't start that way, but I don't have time to waste archiving proof of every negative, against the chance some operator of a beer garden might object to some negative being listed, or might claim we should regularly check unpaid whether he's fixed some previous problem. We don't want lawyers wasting our time. Corrections are welcome from members, send them to bg-org@
  • The login & password are automatically included in footer of each bg@mailman.berklix list posting for ref. by current members of closed groups bg@mailman.berklix & bg-org@mailman.berklix. They may be changed at any time without warning. Do not give password to others. Tell them to join Beer Gardeners group if the want the info. Do not put password in body of any list mail where they may show up in archives.

Names That Are Compound/ Concatenated Here Have Spaces.

If you use search engines you may want to try variants with & without spaces & hyphens.
(Most Germans don't spell place names (or other compound nouns) with spaces. Instead, they unfortunately ram words together, discarding spaces, making things harder to read, especially for foreigners guessing where to split words up, prior to looking up words in a dictionary. (Sometimes Germans put a dash/ hyphen/ "-" in, followed by a space). No need to perpetuate foolish removal of spaces, ( It took the Quebecois to fix French numbers over 80; it takes Non English native speakers to iron out irregularities in English; Don't wait for Germans to realise German could use a simple easy fix. At the last Rechts- Schreib- Reform Germany dithered over triple S etc, changed the rules, then changed back after lots of new dictionaries were sold, but were too daft to just do the simplest obvious fix: Put the spaces back.)

Other Indexes. Maps

Beer garden indexes on line (in no particular order), Mail the organisers which is best index & we can list it first): To find beer garden locations on maps try
  • Web Maps.
  • A paper map
  • Muller bakeries sell new beer garden guides for 5 or 6 DM in 2001.
  • Ludwig publish "Die Schoensten Biergarten in Muenchen und Umgebung" ISBN 3-7787-2131-3, Mine is 2. Auflage 1993


This list does Not pretend to be complete, or to be PR / tourist info. hype. Here warts are mentioned too.

U-Bahn numbers

Since the MVV annoyingly renumbered what was the old U 8 plus another line too, it has not been possible to blindly trust U-Bahn numbers from older maps & books, without checking year of issue, against year when MVV caused avoidable confusion, so always check U numbers yourself.

Bus Line Routes

These of course are even easier to change than U-Bahn numberings, Example: Details in the 2003 MVV book weren't correct for for Hinter- bruehl by 2006. That's why I include Year & Month next to many Bus numbers.

Publishing Dates

: Only clue to publishing date in the MVV 2003 book came on the last para. of the last inside page, talking about a Kombi Karte price.

Walking speeds

Be dubious about walking times as they may have derived from slow walkers eg inc MVV guide, or fast walkers such as Author. Look at a map, decide the distance, & make your own estimate.

  Alter Wirt Ramersdorf

Alte Wirt Ramersdorf
Aribonen Str. 6
Augustiner beer. 600M from U2 Karl-Preis-Platz.
800 Seat. Fallback inside exists. Service area near door exists. Further away may be self service.
Another beer garden: Zar Bar is nearby.

Maps. Page Top


Arnulf- Str 52, 80335 München S-Bahn Hacker- Bruecke is nearer than S & U-Bahn at Haupt- Bahn- Hof.

2019-04-26 Note from Paul: the self service area at the back coming from the main entrance in Arnulf Str is, I was going to say, being renovated but in reality its being completely renewed. The area is a building site which means when I was there 4 weeks back only one small self service area just inside the main entrance and also the seating area is reduced. I can't see it being finished in time for summer so maybe best give it a miss this year or at least check it out before going there!

Shadey big beer garden. Augustiner beer, Hellas & Weissbier & Alk. Frei etc from outside, (& wine of a sort ;-), Dunkles from inside. You can legally bring own food, eg, donner kebab, or pizza from take aways on route or something worryingly healthy from home or shop. Bavarian food sold there inc.: Stuck fish, lots of pig, `gummi- adler';-) & large Brezen.

2009.07.31. Significantly short measured dunkles twice. 1.5 cm or more. Didn't bother to complain as so inflexible not even allowed to buy Dunkles direct from bar, only from waiter who moves it 1 metre from barman to cash till & if you don't pay a tip what chance of ever buying a 2nd beer ? ;-) Told waiter add +.30 tip for the 1 litre, he claimed to misunderstand me offering .30 cent tip (for 1 litre) as wanting to pay 7.20 + 3.8 + 2.0 tip, offering change of 20 - 13 = 7.

No Dunkles sold outside. Watch the inflexible service. Watch the short measures. Watch your change. The short measured beer tasted good !

2012_05_28: Dunkles Mass 7.2 EU. (+10c cos to pass it a metre from barman to waiter at the bar, the waiters expect a tip). Short measured beer, at least 2cm short of a litre. (bought from inside as usual, cos they are too inflexible to sell it outside) New barrel was put for my beer, the man who did that was not busy, but of course the beer came with a big head, & he was too lazy to wait for useless foam to settle (or scoop/ run out) & add beer. I didn't even ask this time, tired of frequent arguments & lies from beer gardens about foam = beer, which is just a lie. Too used to being ripped off in Munich I guess. The previous dunkles mass in a country beer garden on a walk earlier in the day was a full litre, from 2 bottles. Typical.

A load of cycle repair tools wired to a fence to repair bikes, & the 1st & only bike inner tube dispensing machine I've ever seen, I think tubes were 7.5 Euro from machine, & 5 in a shop, but if one is on the track with a flat, what a boon !
Beware on a hot summers day, loads of rafts tie up there, the place gets swamped. 2015 we hot thirsty thirsty hungry weary 3 to 5 cyclists abandoned attempt to purchase food & drink, & got up & cycled on elsewhere.

Brunner- garten

  • With outdoor seating and a small restaurant attached. It's in the middle of the garden plots (Schreber- garten), but is a public beer garden! . The area is nice and green, you can cycle through the park or walk from public transportation. Lowenbraue. Not tried yet, but we will.

  Chinese Tower / Chinesische Turm (Hofbraeu)


  • Brewer: Bayerische Hofbräu since 2002 (before that it was Löwenbräu for 120 years).
  • Watch out for the black Dunkles beer, they often only have Stark here instead, though they usually warn you. Stick to yellow Helles if you don't understand the difference ! (Stark has names ending in Tor eg TriumphaTor, Stark is 50% stronger than Dunkles, Dunkles is stronger than Helles, German beer is stronger than British beer, & British beer stronger than American beer, so if you are a visiting American, be careful ;-)
  • Don't lose or forget your Deposit token (Pfand Mark), take it & your glass back it at the end to get your money back.
Pre formatted for email:
Our usual area within the beer garden:
North East end. From beer & food vending stands, walk North (sun behind
left shoulder) towards kids play area (tends to be more space, less smoke).
Directions: Several ways there, Look at a map:
In the park: "Englischer Garten", one can walk from many starting points.
By bike is ideal; Or
Bus: 54 or 154 (Tell me if bus number changed).), Stop: Chinesischer Turm. Or
Tram: 17, Stop Tivoli- Str; Or
U-Bahn: U3 & U6, Stop Gisela- Str.
Take the stairs at the front of the train coming from the city centre.
Next level turn right and then stairs to the right. Above ground the bus
stop is behind you in Martius- str. Take the 54 Bus (Tell me if bus number changed).) to Chinesischen Turm.
Or walk down Martius- str. straight on into Thieme- str. then again
straight on into the Englischer Garten. Follow the road (South East)
till the bus stop then turn right. About 1km. Or
Car: Entrance over Tivoli- Bruecke, to Parking for Restaurant guests
(presumably not for Beer garden customers ;-) GPS: "Tivoli- Str:
There's even a horse carriage: +49 89 180608
  • You could take a frisbee before, or a volley ball, (We have occasionally. Traditional place for that is South West of beer garden & West of the Monopteros (the stone statue on a hill, the West front of slope [used to be] called the Drogen- wiese by sarcastic Muenchners, but perhaps that name is now obsolete, as in 2010 Munich TV reported the number one drug exchange was Sendlinger Tor, (Where they make deals on the pavement, then walk North across Lind- wurm- Str to exchange drugs & money
  • This beer garden is Big. It's a bit rougher & livelier than See Haus. Like any place with thousands of people, it can on occasion have a spot of bother.
    • Years back the beer garden hired the Schwarze Sherrifs as security guards, perhaps the lesser of 2 evils, after Munich council in 1988 terminated the Sherrifs security guard contract for the MVV ([underground] public transport, after some Sherrifs back then got convicted of beating people up.
    • Now they may have other security guards.
    • While the beer garden is busy, there's often a police car available North East of the beer garden, then East of the bus stop. Cyclists advised to cycle properly there :-)
  • The next beer garden North is See Haus

@2009 : Taken over, became a Greek Taverna. They still had self service & served areas at 2009.05.19 Picture of sign on web shows Lowenbraue & Franziskaner.

Spacious, shaded, & un-crowded: No rubbing backs ! Beer a bit cheaper than Taxis- Garten nearby. Self service so you can also bring your own food. Small, so you can't miss us;
To be checked if still true: Not busy, some less frequently ordered foods get cooked to order. Large room in Gaststätte under same management adjacent if it suddenly rains, (no problem about running in wet with drinks, & ordering more from waitress later). Big kids play area under trees, optically near enough for parents, but acousticly offset for non parents ;-) Ideal for midsummer, plenty of shade.

Isarauen 1, 81379 Munich. Tel 7232677

2022-08-17 Flaucher beer a rip off: Loewenbraue Dunkles 5.2, Versus Bavaria Park Augustiner 4.3

2011-07-08 Friday EXPENSIVE

  • 0.5 litre of Dunkles & Alkoholfrei 3.6 & 3.7 Eur & 3.7 & 3.6 for Weissbier then Helles
  • Expensive, presumably to quickly repay for renevations for the Gaststaette, (which was due to re-open next day apparently), & for rental of mobile beer serving stand on wheels & temporary extra food shed.

    The normal outside Schanke (vending area) was closed. There was no seating laid out at the back of the main building (cinema/TV area sometimes). No seating in the park (Used to usually be some the other side of gravel cycle track/path/road). So extra costs distributed over less seats.

  • Big rectangular slot hole in roof of beer garden umbrella (big square one covered Eastern of the 2 mobile cash tills + brezen sales area + our table, The hole a nuisance during thunderstorms. Another umbrella seemed similarly afflicted, too far to be clear. Several looked old. Should have been more & in better condition for beer at that price.
Not perhaps the easiest of places to find, so here's copious information:


  • Near the left (West) bank of the river Isar (Left bank is conventionally looking down river. River flows to North East).
  • South (up stream) of where the Mittlerer ring (south side of city) crosses the river. At that point the Mittlerer ring is called Candid- Str
  • West of the North end of Flaucher- Steg.
  • East of Schinder Bruecke.
  • South end of "Isarauen" (My map from RV GmbH 1985 merely shows the street in the park called Isarauen, but does not name or index it).

Getting There

  • Bike: Through Isarauen toward Thal- Kirchen. See Below
  • U-Bahn: U3 Bruder- muehl- str or Thal- Kirchen.
  • Bus: 54 (Tell me if bus number changed).) along Candid str, Alight at Schaeftlarn- Str. May also be one at Bruder- muehl- str
  • Car: Schaeftlarn- str, Hans Preissinger Str, Schinder Bruecke.

Getting Back

When It's dark, you may want a torch, to go blundering about in the bushes trying to find Schinder Bruecke. (not sure the path is lit or not) Or with no torch walk along the lit wide path, either down stream to Candid str (= Mittlerer Ring), then left at the ring to Bruder- muehl- str; or up stream, over canal, & up the canal to Thal- Kirchen U-Bahn.


Cyclists who remember annual trips South, up (as in up-stream along) the West bank of the Isar to Grosshesseloehe, may remember a beer garden half way there, that sprawls across the cycle track, & into the park, ... that's Flaucher ! Shortly before you've been cycling through trees, curving right with the park on your right. If you overshoot, you arrive at the junction of the long Flaucher pedestrian wooden bridge across the river.


They do films outside occasionally, round the back.
Good kids play area.

  (Zum) Grünen Baum

Verdi Str. 47, 81247 München
2012 The BG is still there.
We avoid this place. The word is (@ 2010) that they will build houses in the beer garden. A sad loss of a beer garden, but good riddance to the repugnant landlady & landlord, a pity they didn't sell out to a less hostile landlord.


  • On South West corner with Frauen- Dorfer- Str.
  • S-Bahn: Obermenzing station on S2 line, (10 mins. from Haupt- Bahn- Hof). 100 metres South West from station, walk back (opposite direction to train arriving from city), slightly down hill, across Verdi Str, heading into the sun.
  • Busses: 143 and 162. (At August 2009) (Tell me if bus number changed).).
  • Bike: Head towards Autobahn A8 : From Haupt Bahn Hof, West North West along Arnulf Str, under Mittlerer ring, to Rot- Kreuz- Platz at Nymphenburg, then North along Menzinger Str, curving West around park on left, past end of park, under S-Bahn up, then left across road junction.

  Hirsch- Au (Augustiner, Hofbraue & Koenig Ludwig & 2016-05-25)

Tel.: 089 - 322 10 80 Fax: 089 - 322 10 819 Spaten & Franziskaner beer @ 2012, (Jim reckoned their bottled better than draught).


2022-06-04: Dunkles price a rip off 9.70 Euro / litre. When I didn't pick up the Mass, & they sked why, I said I was leaving it there so it could settle ... (unstated: to show they were serving short measures & see it topped up). The frequent normal Munich hostility at being caught serving short measures ensued: Snide instruction to me if I wanted more beer I should just say so. As if I the customer was wrong, greedy, & troublesome expecting a litre.
Pre 2022-06-04: Self Service. Own food allowed. Cooked food there. Also sells Dunkles & Weiss bier etc, not just Helles. Sells halves as well as Litres. Long narrow-ish beer garden, North-South. High trees to West. Jazz band stand, middle of West side. Kids play area, big well equipped fully fenced, at North end. Tennis Courts & car park East beyond servery. Coffee Mug deposit 3 Euro (for boring plain white mug!), don't forget to return mug!

Old Owner Gone - Good !

Owner was daft enough to send all 8 external beer garden staff home Fri 2003.06.06, after a spot of rain, leaving about 3/4 internal restaurant staff to struggle: Time consuming queue to buy beer resulted. One responsible deputy manager did his best to handle the flood of trade & problems his landlord had dumped on him. Later visit 2003.07.25 they were serving as normal. Friday 13th August 2004 Again they were closed outside, & we were fetching beer & food from inside, - it had been somewhat windy & cooler earlier. That seemed a frequent pattern, fortunately, 2006.06 I'm told there's a new owner. That's good news ! Another beer garden guide completely dropped entry for this place then restored it with new owner. Tel (089) 3120550 (from web other index) or 3221080 (my 2003 book).

Bad Weather Fallback

    Normally we start looking for a table on the South East corner,
    near the park, kid's carousel end, remember there's a 2nd area round
    the back, North West toward the deer.
    Tram 16 & 17 from Sendlinger Tor, NW on Arnulf:
    Alight at stop Kriem- hilden- str,
    turn left= South West on to footpath (Esso is now on your right),
    First left = South into Herder- Str, past Koenig- Bauer- Str into
    park; veer Right = West South West, bearing 230+ ;-) diagonally
    across park to B.G..
    Or alight earlier at Steuben Platz immediately after passing
    Mittlerer Ring, & veer left a bit = West into the park. Walk
    West (with the sun a bit more in left eye than right).
    For trams, when leaving you don't have to walk through the park
    in the dark (and less distance than to S Bahn). The trams are very
    frequent up till 22:00 & then still every 10 minutes. 16 mins to S. Tor).
    OR S Bahn Laim, On "Stamm- Strecke" (central section), so nearly all lines.
    Station: Laim Not Hirsch- garten ! Laim is nearer. Hirsch- garten
    is new, opened in 2010 or so. (We reckon it was given that name
    to help sell new blocks of flats).
    From S Bahn Laim: Walk North through tunnel under railway, along Wotan
    Str,; Right (East) into Winfried Str; Left (North) into De La Paz
    Str, Right (East) into the park, then veer Left (North East)
    through park; curving a bit left, (to North); Past largely Turkish
    etc family groups barbecuing & playing with footballs & kids
    etc,; Carry on toward beer garden. The Deer park is now on your
    left. At the Steckerl Fisch stand (Fish on sticks over a grill),
    turn 90 degrees Right (East) & walk toward the open grass.
    (If you'r worried you'll not find it through the park, you could
    always continue along De La Paz Str, Turn Right (East) into
    Koenig-bauer str. then Right (South) into beer garden, then down
    the far (South) end, on the Left (East)).
  • Cyclists tip:
    If you'r running late, & cycling fast from the city heading West on the cycle track, be careful on the track on the North pavement on Lands-berger Str, West of the Mittlerer ring. There's sometimes quite a number of camper vans & cars etc with prostitutes there. (I've heard regulation is less strict outside the Mittlerer Ring, so one tends to see higher density just outside. I've nothing against them, except I do Not want the knuckles of my hands on the handlebars to be smashed, when they suddenly fling open their door to discuss business with a potential customer on the pavement. (It's nearly happened to me, & elsewhere on a Munich cycle path (in less salacious circumstance) a friend got hand impacted by a car door). They have little comprehension there might be a Bike at speed, & they should look first, before only slowly opening their steel door outward to obstructing the long straight, thus fast, cycle path. Male customers on the pavement walking toward female in car, are an additional but somewhat lesser hazard: sometimes with more peripheral vision as standing free on pavement, not sat in a vehicle facing forward, when Bike is coming from behind, & & walking man is potentially softer than a steel door to crash into, though I don't fancy trying ;-) If you'r a fast cyclist, its safer to cycle on the road IMO, (it's a quiet trade road parallel & adjacent to the real 2 x 3 lane high speed road adjacent. But on road 'll probably be forbidden under German law as a cycle track there. (The cycle track is also on small paving stones. The road is mostly smooth tarmac over periodic cobble stones. After the prostitutes end of the street is passed, the next set of people drifting around on the cycle track painted on the paved stones, are private 2nd hand car trade, they at don't tend to present quite such sudden hazards, & may be a bit more spatially aware. The laws of kinetic energy are Never subservient to human law, despite many locals behave as if they were ;-)
    Another safer option can be to cycle North on Frieden- heimer- bruecke, then West into park at Seidl-hof- str or Arnulf- str.
  • There's a lot of football screens at this Beer garden, & no area is free of the cursed things.
  • If it thunderstorms, you'r doomed to get wet.. 1 little gast- statte has no chance to take all those people on a warm night.
  • Re. Racks of glasses: They do wash them. Its just traditional some customers rinse them too. It harks back to the days when customers paid a direct price for the beer, and the rest, the food and plates were your own problem.
  • Beer Measures: At least 3 of us have had heated arguments with the Schanke over short measures. Was OK last time (2008?). In 2009 Report of some personnel taking delight in issuing short measures at one Schanke.
  • View into park on East side. Evening sun over deer park on West side. Maybe biggest beer garden in Munich.

2015_05_25: Beer Garden closed as cool. Street tables all taken, full. I still don't like this place (any more, used to), was better before `renovation'. Expensive, limited food, & normal stupid Munich trendy menu: (ie smaller fonts, & italics, non useful words, not on white paper but yellow-ish, + poor light, harder than necessary to read, distracting from listening to friends).
Price (self service) 7.0 Eu/litre @ 2009.04.15
At 18:00 14.04.2009, only 2 tables left in Sun, (early season, sun low).
Lots of shade. Damn expensive ribs (10.5 Euro @ 15.04.2009, just a few years back was good value at 5 DM ! Full range of beer, including Dunkles, Weiss, & an unusual deliberately cloudy house brewed Helles, but other beers too etc. Good fallback indoors if weather turns nasty, though loud inside in winter, & somewhat expensive.) Great place if announcing a future event in unknown weather: They just switch staff between beer garden & outside, depending. Used to be good deal on spare ribs (better value than eg Hinter- bruehl, even though Kapuziner is a central venue ). Some years they convert more beer garden to high priced waiter service (no cheap ribs there., The Koenig Ludwig Biergarten Erlass allowed these places to sell beer on the understanding citizens were allowed to bring their own food. Cant bring your food easily if not enough space to sit & drink, 'cos all the self service is taken ! Most of the self service now extends round the corner toward road, so if you don''t see us walk round corner. No football world cup screens on Wed. 28th June 2006 :-). If weather is bad, it might be more crowded/ noisey within sight of copper brew vessels, so also check the likely quieter back room near the beer garden.
2013-08-19 after renovations: Front room was as horribly noisey as ever. Coat hangers on North wall have gone. Brighter/ whiter so easier to read menus. Menu cluttered with lots of irrelevant words, & tarted up with pointless heavy felt covers. Beer a horrendous 4 Euros for alkohol frei. All meals over 10, except Kase Spaetzle 7 EU.

  • 2014-05-24: Short measured twice on 2 x 1 & 1 x 0.5 litre dunkles beer. Then they polluted their beer garden with noise from their giant TV, broadcasting the mindless soap "Berg Doktor" 50 mins before some football match we also did Not come to watch.
    Management too foolish to leave TV Off until just before football, too foolish to have tested their offensive TV in the morning when no one there, & management too absent to be found despite 2 complaints. This author tossed his beer on the ground in disgust, & we all left the beer garden.
  • 2010 name: Kongress Garten
  • 2009 name: Gast- Haus- Alte- Messe


  • 2022-05-14: Maybe they are renovating the normal outside sales counters on the West of the building, so we had to go inside to buy dunkles bier, & then a small tip to waiter/ress. The West side seating under trees has been removed, they've put more seats on the North side, on the square, nearer the snail.
  • Large served area outside the front (West), Green tables of 4 to max 6.
  • Largish self service section of benches for 8 to max 10 West & South.
  • Spacious outside mostly no back rubbing.
  • Can bring own food or buy there.
  • 2012: Their menu, PDF English, shows Augustiner beer 2.9 EU, & Weiss & Dunkles 3.1.
  • Lots of room inside if weather turns suddenly bad.
  • Beer Garden extends into park, across path, park is a good place for a frisbee.
  • Funicular railway engine near Transport Museum nearby, next to paved area where one can [mono] cycle, roller skate etc.
  • Tons of room outside for older kids to run around & explore
  • Play ground fenced in for young kids.
  • I've always had decent measures there. But R.G. 2009.08.01 reported short measures & arguing & waiting twice to refill same Maas before it finally came to the line. (Perhaps from some 2nd Schanke, not the one by Kids area?). 2 changes of owner since then.

Innere Wiener Straße 19 81667 München Tel: 089 / 45 99 25-0

Central area, crowded, can smell of smoke, as too sheltered by high buildings & doesn't get enough wind, & Germans smoke too much, so we sometimes sit on North West corner, where it's less crowded (corner with cocktail bar on one side & park on other side). Has a walled kids play area. Have to go inside to buy Dunkles beer. Can bring own food. They sell hot & cold food outside. They stop selling at 22:00 (2006.08 staff informed us, walking round). They have to close outside by 23.00 as overlooked by flats. Big inside area if it rains. Non smoking room. Probably the best (only) kids play area inside I've seen (acoustically out of range of front rooms :-) High ceilings typically Bavarian/ Muenchen. Food inside used to be sometimes on special, smaller fixed portions at (back then) 5 Euro, They make up for the loss of profit with expensive beer:

2023-07-14 Russen 1 litre 10.90 Euro + 2 Euro deposit plastic token, Grosse Brezen 5.70 Euro, Hofbreau 1 litre 10.50 Euro

For a proper litre measure had to return beer back twice on 2006.08.18 ! 3.50 per half Bill calls it Dunkles Gold. Dance hall or some such in cellar, (for older people I'm told). Few minutes walk south from U-Bahn Wiener Platz. Tram stop outside North corner.

@2009, inside now has electronic measurement, at least on Dunkles, so no more short measures at least here ? :-) Still beware most of the rest of Munich
Possibility also to picnic in park outside nipping in to beer garden for facilities & for anyone who arrives empty handed.

2013-06-17 Annoying repeated flashing of lights on & off by Beer Garden management deliberately to annoy customers to make them leave at end of evening. (Flats on North side want quiet).

Beergarden Description (extended notes, not for announcements):

Beer: Lowenbraue (which means Franziskaner for Weissbier, (which Jim doesn't like). & 2 Maas of Dunkles tasted foul to me 2008 07 04, Chucked much of both on the stones. It was a fresh lively barrel, foaming like crazy, & was not old, did come fresh from tap. Perhaps it was washing solvent on the glasses, insufficiently washed off. Normally dunkles there OK. But often from bottles, or dunkles draught from inside (was closed for renevations). Currently they have both draught & bottled Dunkles outside.

Long narrow beer garden, running East-West, Parallel to Nymphen- Burger- Str.. Enough sun in summer. particularly at West end in Summer 2008 as building site adjacent to so shadow. Better than an edge of town beer garden on cool days. Low level is sunny, higher is shadier. Can sometimes be noisy from the road. Can be damn noisy occasionally if some rotten radio station invades, bringing `Schickeys' (Posers) im tow, recruited by radio, penalty of any central convenient location.

@ 2008.05: Dunkles on sale outside from bottles (so you get a full measure, Even their Helles was a full measure @ 2008.05 Somewhat unusual for Muenchen ! )

@ 2008.07.04 they have completely gutted the inside, raw concrete & steel, so no wet weather fallback at all for next several months.

[The cellar ?] is another traditional place for Stark Bier Fest, substantial entrance fee then though.

Big Chicken wings and scampi etc. deep fried and tasty. Watch the trucks carting away the logs of the Isar rafts for the next day. Food from the woks can be spicy if you ask nicely / insult the cook enough. Chilli spare ribs were excellent after they had been jazzed up a bit.

2014-06-06: A review of
Useless web: guff flowery prose, drop down menus, & pointless pictures to set a mood, but doesn't name their brewery ! or their range of beers, or outside prices. or what food they sell in their beer garden. nor mention they have an ice cream stand too, nor did I see their fenced kids play area mentioned, nor that they install a monster TV to impose football on all-comers when the football watching season arrives.

  • Beer garden
    • Can be (if wind from West, but Munich doesn't get much wind) a pleasant view over the escarpment & into beer garden.
    • Crowded seating during the rebuilding after the fire.
    • Rebuilding complete @ July 2003, now has all the recti-linear architectural attraction & interest of an old Butlin/Pontin's holiday camp ;-)
    • In the back corner along the side adjacent to where where the Kids Play Area (KPA) was, they've put low level toilet block, & a new bandstand further down.
    • Exactly where the KPA used to be is now a pathway to the large bus car park, they didn't sacrifice any of that parking space, they sacrificed the beer garden.
    • They can now bus in hordes of eg USA BMW businessmen 2003.07.11. We were then stuck between the awful racket from the lousy `Lampion' band (some north of Munich music type ?) on the new bandstand, & the different Americanised Bavarian music from the halls.
    • We complained to management, cashiers subject to even more noise right opposite bandstand complained too, Forget any hope of a quiet relaxing beer garden unless you sit well away from halls entrance, nearer to the escarpment.
    • If you want to go, check what band will be making too much noise too close to you. They have a timetable.
    • Beer schanke too inefficient / slow though lots of staff & some quite surprisingly friendly, they'll probably get more efficient by 2004.
    • It takes a certain `skill' to manage to not pour the full content of 2 half litre Alkohol- Frei bottles into a litre mass glass, but they managed it, (the place used to regularly short measure on Helles & dunkles `vom fass' (on tap) served by the older man from the South Schanke (S. Schanke now gone) before the fire).
    • The KPA has grown, but moved down right by the main entrance, much easier to have your kids run off or be stolen from the new KPA, than the old South East corner location with high fences. Even this non kid owner noticed that was daft.
    • Amazingly a local tabloid (`yellow press') paper (TZ or AZ maybe, but not SZ), claimed lots of their readers like it ! Maybe they used to, hard to believe they still do.
    • Sad that it isn't what it was before the building were burnt down (about which some cynics after a beer have been heard to ask each other rhetorical questions about the convenience of loose matches ;-)
  • The Stark Bier Fest: Traditional start point for the fest. Televised live. Politicians do their ponderous bit here. Some say if you enjoy that, you've been here too long, some say if you can't understand it, you'r not a local. Whether one Wants to appreciate it is debatable. I've been here too long ! 'Cos I've enjoyed the televised Bavarian humour at times.
    • The 2003 Stark Bier Fest: (Return from the tents down by the Auer Dult) Short measures & tight fit tables bolted to the floor. Tedious rubbing of backs with next table tight packed close. A waitress tried to steal the substantial change due my female neighbour - I put my arm across to table opposite, grabbed it, & the fat old waitress bounced off & couldn't escape without paying back what she had attempted to cheat. She knew full well, she was just trying to cheat the young American female customer who was trapped on the tight bench, & couldn't get her money back. I left in disgust shortly after, I finished drinking my first & only Stark bier there outside.
    • In the front building, it used to be OK even during Starkbierfest time, it was more of a civilised restaurant in the area that led off from the left side, just before where you paid for entry to the `garden' & halls.
    • Stark beer is seriously strong: There used to be a reputation for good number of fights at Starkbierfest zeit. Men seemed more casual after leaving the premises to go home, & vaguely wandering across the road to urinate above the escarpment beyond, but more surprising one year was to see 2 young women, trousers down, squatting in the gutter urinating about 4 meters from the entrance, couldn't even be bothered to walk up or across the road, let alone to the grass beyond ! Strong beer, & things happen. Another traditional place for Stark Bier Fest is Löwen Bräu Keller @ Stigl- maier Platz
    • The 2010 Stark Bier Fest: Still very short measure on beer. Signs saying to get measures topped up at the Schanke are worthless, deceptive public relations, because all the beer is collected from there just by waitresses who have not the slightest interest in taking it to customers, & being sent back to top up when it is inevitably short. Our waitress was typical: An over age, seriously fat, very grumpy mercenary granny. She told us she wouldn't let people from another table who had already bought beer join us, bluntly told us she wanted to _sell_ beer. (She obviously considered selling refills was insufficient). Didn't have the politeness to say Danke for tips, unless fat tips. Argued back when I said I wasn't prepared to buy the shortest measure she presented, I grabbed my money back & slid her her beer back to her. Only then did she agree to sell me one less short measured (but still a way short measure). At O'fest & stark beer fest they habitually sell the shortest measure to the first sucker. Nock-herberg continues to use the so called stein krug, where customers can't check for fraudulent short measures.

      On 18th March 2010, we noted times of "Ein Prosits" played by the band. (The word is at O'fest it's in band's contracts to encourage customers to drink, so probably the same at Stark Bier Fest.) We might have missed writing a few, but these were the times (& intervals in brackets). 16:52 (30) 17:22 (29) 17:51 (37) 18:28 (45) 19:13 (14) 19:22 (31) 19:53 (13) 20:04 (26) 20:28 (42) 21:20 (30) 21:50 (31) 22:21

Spring/ Early Summer 2006: Weird reconstituted potato type things outside, sort of like chips but spongy, & tapering to pointed ends, came swimming in thin gravy with some meat. I immediately poured my gravy on ground. Frankie didn't & was very queazy later.
Lousey service inside, their very friendly helpful manageress tried to sort it, but couldn't make that much progress with such bad staff, two of whom should be sacked as more interested in Not working, &/or chatting behind bar to their friends in front. (& also smoking behind the bar I recall, (but won't swear to, memory not guaranteed on that event), (Illegal BTW in UK, unless you wash hands after: saliva = health risk!)) One can speculate with 2 versus 1, who will leave first, & if service will improve.

Warning: We Avoid Here During football Season

  • Next : 07.06.2008 bis 29.06.2008 EM LIVE
  • Their web claims to have largest screen in a beer garden,
  • Most of our group does not like pervasive football noise from loudspeakers.
  • We won't pay extra high prices for degraded environment.
  • Note the mobile number of the mail list announcer, for in case they impose football noise on us, & we leave, & you need to find us by mobile phone, as happened 02.07.2004: Rip Off football Pricing With No football !
    Beergarten Aus- Schanken was closed, due to bad weather. The small area next to cafe was open as usual, but had been extended, partly railed off. They'd put a large projection screen outside, possibly so they could show something, maybe a film or something I thought, but it was off, no signs of any sort, no tickets, & they were serving beer outside as usual, & it was quiet, largely deserted on arrival, so OK. After beer arrived, we asked for menus, but only one ordered food, as too expensive & a bit weird for the price. I saw the waiter looking very carefully at backs of all menus when he collected them from us before selecting some for next table. Elke paid first, for a single Weiss Bier: 3.90 Euros! We complained, & refused to pay more than normal. Found that some but not all menus had football logos on back cover, with rip off prices inside. Cafe manageress was insistent she must rip us all off @ 3.90 Euros for beers instead of their normal 3.30, for non existent football we didn't see & didn't want. She rolled out the usual Munich excremental excuses: That it was owner's orders, & owner of course wasn't there, & so she had to rip us off, & we had no choice but to be ripped off ... & that if we didn't pay their enhanced rip off prices, it must come out of the waiter's pocket - the owner would rip him off instead. We refused to be ripped off: there was no football showing, & I added I hated watching football & would Not have been there if they were showing it. She said she'd turn it on (to retrospectively justify the prices, now we wanted to leave!). I warned her not to extend the attempted fraud, by falsifying evidence, & turning on football TV just before police arrived (if called). I didn't trust her at all. I demanded she show me my 3.40 change due from a 10 Euro note on 2 beers, before I'd even give it to her. I was certain she'd short change me & the rest after otherwise. She continued arguing with us. She rushed off briefly at one point, to harass the technicians to immediately put on football, any, even a recording, they refused, saying there was no point. The waiter accepted normal pricing, & I finally got my right change from him. Then others paid & left. After group had left, last organiser reported she was still telling technicians to turn on the large screen & show football - & they were saying No, none available!

  • 2015: Augustiner beer.
  • 2010_08_13 Prices: Weissbier 3.9 Euro, Alkoholfrei & Dunkles 7 Euro, Helles 6.8 Euro.
  • 2010_08_13 Still no halves sold, (except Weissbier & Apfel schoerle) Beer Garden at Sat 18:00 was quiet, & mostly empty The regular man at the Schänke was under worked, presumably bored waiting for customers presumably, but was still too typically awkward & inflexible to sell half a litre. Despite taking & translating for physically small purchaser who did not need or want a litre, who had to buy Weiss instead of Helles. Typically awkward Muenchner/Bavarian, thought both the elderly polite purchaser & this author.
  • 2010_08_13 Loud speakers (PA) not noticed. Perhaps cos they had so few customers, & food pre cooked, no waiting & calling needed ?.)
  • Pre 2010_08 Obtrusive loud speakers (public address amplifier system) over most of beer garden, with un-intelligible gibberish from a Bavarian female, until towards end of evening. Best sit right down the end & then loudspeaker's not so bad, near the children's play area at the back next to the railway. Jim noted 2011_08: "We were there one lunchtime and they were announcing when food was ready for collection. It's not so noticeable in the evenings."
  • 2015: still no halves of beer 'except weiss.
  • Tables well spaced, embedded in ground, as are bench seats, longer than the normal ubiquitous yellow 10 pack portables. However, very high, difficult for short & older people to climb on to middle (but I think there's lower seats too on other tables, just we tend to go for the high fixed ones, a change from the ubiquitous norm).
  • Bad weather fallback exists: Row of wooden open sided shelters, on North edge of the tables, open to the South, + 4 rooms inside the buildings,

  • Cooked Food & Can Bring own.
  • Spacious - They were forced to reduce seating numbers some years back, after noise complaints from neighbouring residents. They grassed over a barrier border on North side. 2018 on North side, East end, part of the border has been gravelled & tabled again.
  • GeyerWally (ex Concordia) is nearby, but lesser known, smaller, quieter than Taxis.

    Easiest to just turn up on time :-) But if you know you'r coming,
    & as some tables are green 6 seaters, & they reduced total number
    of seats some years back (noise complaints from neighbours), feel
    free to tell us <bg-org@mailman.berklix.___> to try to collar enough seats.
    Nearest U-Bahn Gern U1 only 6 mins from Haupt- bahn- hof.
    Take the stairs at the back of the train coming from the city centre.
    Then on next level the stairs to the left.
    Above ground do a U turn then right at the Hypo- Vereins- bank.
    Walk down Tizian- str and at the end of the road is the beer garden.
    Only 300 metres.
    Report from RG, Sun 22 Jun 2014
    Yesterday we went to the Taxis beer garden and they stopped serving beer at 8.15PM (because of the football there were not as many people there as usual). So we all had to pack up and go home but before we left at about 8.25PM PC and myself wanted to go for a pee and as we came to the toilet we saw the manager locking the door. When we ask him whether he could leave the toilets open until at least most of the customers had left (after all they have to pee somewhere) he said in German "If you don't want to drink we don't want to open the toilets". I had eaten a meal and drunk 3 beers, PC. had eaten a meal and drunk more beer than myself!
    I think this is a case for crossing this beer garden off our list.

  Tollwood General Location
Spiridon Louis Ring /Willi-Gebhardt Ufer.
Where we meet:
Andechser Zelt Location: On South-East Corner of Festival Grounds 1. Enter "Main entrance" (from Spiridon-Louis Ring) 2. Stay Left. Walk along left periphery. 3. Continue until you see the Andechser Tent. It is one of the circus tents with a blue roof and blue-white sides. see pictures Ringed around the Andechser Tent there are many Beergarten tables. 60% have blue sunshades. 1. On the LEFT of the tent entrances are tables facing the grass. Also near the racket from the free band adjacent. 2. On the RIGHT of the tent entrances is an area of tables adjacent to the "Andechser Lounge" (Right / Left as you face the tent on your arrival)


Yes some (Not Us!) annually pull out their Hippy gear to cruise (& man) the stands here. There's nothing too weird not to be on show as junk for sale at high prices here.
Beer Measures:
The hippy pseudo peace & light atmosphere does NOT extend to beer sales. As per usual Munich attitude they'll try & rip you off on short measures, I had the normal argument over measures last year, from the lounge bar then, & this year got ripped again by the bar between lounge & main tent. A pity we don't have some UK style Weights & Measures Inspectors in Bavaria to close places that regularly defraud on volume. ( See other refs to eg Muenchner Verein Gegen Bier Betrug, & The Oktoberfest tax authorities institutionalising rip offs by charging more than 100 tax units per 100 "Mass" ( not equal to a litre) sold)

Cycling To Toll- wood.

Sure there's Bus, but nothing beats a Bike IMO. However there's still laws to obey, eg:
On a hot hot crowded night, ~20:00 Tues 21 Jun 2005, 3 police in a row were fining 3 cyclists under the trees heading towards Toll- wood. North East of the junction with Dachauer Str, heading North East on Schwere- Reiter- Str, on the North West side of the street, rather than using the cycle track on the South East side of Schwere- Reiter). There were numerous more cyclists heading in to be fined next. There were many pedestrians in both directions, & cycle path was not wide, so if the cyclists had swerved, they could have endangered pedestrians.

  Zar Bar (ex Zic Zac) (Suggestion from Barbara J., not been there.

Now Zar Bar. Rosenheimer Str 240 It is on an island in the middle of the Rosenheimer Str. directly opposite the Alter Wirt (co-ordinates where the Rosenheimer meets the Inns-bruecker Ring). I like it because it is modern and non-Bavarian. If you go through the bar you come out at a beer garden at the rear, maybe a little bit smaller than the Alter Wirt, with a small play area. The ages and nationalities are mixed. The Bus stop (very close) is Ramersdorf, Bus 95 and 96 (Tell me if bus number changed).), U-Bahn Karl-Preis-Platz with a 5 - 10 minute walk south according to one's condition (!). Alternatively U-Bahn Inns-bruecker Ring - walk along the ring towards Salzburg Autobahn and turn right into Rosenheimer Str. I think the food is o.k. as I don't l like Bavarian food, but maybe it comes out of a freezer ? Don't know what a beer costs, but can't be too expensive, cos the youngsters go there!

Stout, Irish & Guinness pubs

  • Beer Types:
    Note from Jim 2010.09:
    Unfortunately the only Irish pub I know which doesn't sell that beer which I prefer not to mention is the Shamrock in Trauten- wolf- strasse. The problem is that I seem to remember that some time ago Spaten did a deal with Guinness and this is the reason that everywhere you tend to find Guinness you find Spaten. The Shamrock is of course out of the question because it's very noisey and I doubt that it's possible to reserve a table.

  • Killians Frauen-platz 11, 80331 owned by the same guy as the Shamrock and also has live music and Augustiner
    + Next door in same cellar: Ned Kelly's Australian is for sport although Saturday would be ok but the place is very popular and not just with sport fans. Crowds flood in.
    IMO the place is a fire risk if crowded, I Julian do Not want to be there then,
  • Molly Malones - Keller- Str. 21, Haidhausen
  • Ryan's Muddy Boot Schlör. Str. 10 80634 Munich Neuhausen, Too small for us. Augustiner beer
  • Outlander Australian Pub Weissen- Burger Platz 3 81667 München

Indians with outside seating

Notes on a few Indian Restaurants with outside space:
  • Maharani 2, Balde-platz, Has a side garden away from the road. Lots of foliage adjacent, may be risk of mosquitoes some times ?
  • Noor Jahan in Kaiser- str 80M from Leopold- str.
  • Taj Mahal on the corner of Nymphen-burger- str and Landshuter Allee. south side of Nymphen-burger Str, just East of the Mittlerer ring has a shadey front garden well back from the road.
  • Maharani 1, Rott-mann- str. 24, 80333, near Stiglmaier Plz has tables on a pavement widened over a converted road.
  • Haveli Nymphenburgerstr 193, 80637 Muenchen. Terrace toward road. U Bahn: Rotkreuzplatz U1. 53, 62, 63 bus (Tell me if bus number changed).) and 12 tram to stop Neuhausen.

  • J.W. = Augustiner
  • H.B. = Herzog-liches Brauhaus Tegernsee. not Hof Brau Haus
  • More ?
Caution: Directions posted for each event are often not checked since last time, so will go on being wrong, till someone mails me to correct them.
