There are tons of beer gardens all over Munich! Those are (usually traditional Bavarian) pubs where you sit outside in the "garden" and have some "Mass" of beer (one Mass = one liter!). Most also serve traditional (hearty) food.
Open all day during spring and summer time.
Daytrip to Füssen / Fuessen
Fuessen is a small town on the south-border of Bavaria.
Mainly the tourists go there in order to see the famous castles of "mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaria, who rather invested his (and Bavaria's) money into great and pittoresque castles instead of weapons...
Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are just 6 Km off Fuessen.
Füssen is also well known for its great castle - seen on my pic - the monastery of Mang and lots of lovely baroque houses in the old town of Fuessen
On the south border of Bavaria, on the road to Innsbruck/Austria
Well...I would be stupid not to mention it even if I have never been myself. Some people say it is a tourist trap, others love it. Suffice to say that it starts in mid September and goes on until early October and is held in the Theresienwiese which is a park not far from the centre. Here you can frolic with thousands of Bavarians and tourists alike. Book your accommodation well in advance.

Some German terms that may help:
Bahnhof: railway station.
Burg: castle, fortress.
Rathaus: town hall.
Schloß: castle, palace.
Most beautiful castle in Muenchen.
I should not consider this castle an "off the beaten path", but a must see activity.
The castle is located in the neighborhood with the same name. The building itself is very beautiful, specially inside.
Behind the building a never-ending garden, which is specially beautiful on fall.
A café at one side of the garden completes the visit with the opportunity of a coffe with some bavarian speciallity.
