Munich’s Beer Gardens: Königlicher Hirschgarten

Munich’s Beer Gardens: Königlicher Hirschgarten

By  Thursday, 5.5.2016, 13:37    Breweries & Beer

The Königlicher Hirschgarten beer garden is the biggest of the city and probably also the biggest in Europe. It offers seating for 8,000 people under the crowns of chestnut trees and is located at the rim of a park at the Munich district of Nymphenburg. The Königlicher Hirschgarten (Royal Deer Garden) was founded in 1791 and served as a hunting lodge for the Royal Wittelsbach family. The meadows surrounding the Hirschgarten are the reasons why many families with kids love to visit the beer garden, as do many dog owners. The beer served comes from the Augustiner and Kaltenberg breweries.

During the beer garden season our guest can marvel at the daily rituals of the tapping of 15 l, 30l, 50l and 200l wooden Augustiner beer casks. The Augustiner Brewery is the only brewery in the city that has continued to deliver wooden casks of beer to the present time.

An absolute highlight for the children is undoubtedly the wildlife reserve right next to the beer garden with its 30 deer, which is free of charge. Of course, the carousel, the stand with lots for prizes, and the toy stand are sure to make their hearts beat faster. For the kids the sunday outing will be a big adventure, while for the parents, it will be a day of rest and relaxation in the beergarden.

Table service is only available at one part of the huge beer garden, but there are sufficient self-service points at which you can buy your Augustiner Maß (€6.90), non-alcoholic beverages, Hendl (€6.90), Pretzels (€3.40), cake any many more traditional beer garden dishes.

If you happen to be in Munich during this year’s UEFA European Football Championship, the Hirschgarten will be a lively place to see the matches live on 5 large screens.
