    Seehaus im Englischen Garten: Lakeside Beer in the Englischer Garten

    by travelfrosch Updated Jan 11, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are few better places to spend a summer afternoon than at the Seehaus beer garden, ideally situated by the Kleinhesseloher Lake in the Englischer Garten. The setting couldn't be nicer, with tables for the taking all the way to the lake shore. Watch the rowboats and paddleboats go by, or commune with the ducks and swans as they beg for your food.

    Favorite Dish: Beer garden fare is self-service and good. The chicken and spare ribs are tasty.

    Paulaner is the beer of choice at this establishment. A half-liter glass of Paulaner Weissbier goes quite well with the setting.

    Heide Volm, beer garden: A typical Beer Garden in Planegg

    by claudia1975 Written Jan 10, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Heide Volm is a very old traditional beer garden in Munich. It is located in the suburb of Planegg and directly located at the S-Bahn station “Planegg” (S-6). The entrance to the beer garden is a little bit hidden (in the back of the turning circle in front of the station) – but the hidden area is very bautiful. A large typical beer garden with large shadowing chestnut trees and nice sitting areas. You may bring your own food or select from the beer garden fod offered. The inside of Heide Volm is – in my opinion – not beautiful, since it is mostly window-less and somehow not cozy.

    Take the S-6 towards “Planegg” – exit at Planegg and the beer garden is right there. When you get out from the small passenger tunnel it is located on the RIGHT hand side.
    You can also come by car and park anywhere in Planegg. Planegg is located on the B-10 (main road) connecting Munich and Starnberg.

    Favorite Dish: Beer, Obadzda & Brezn, bringing own food and sitting their with friends

    Hofbräu-zelt: Home of Aloisius

    by globetrott Updated Aug 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hofbräu-tent on Oktoberfest is the favorite place of most tourists from USA and Australia.
    This tent offers 6898 seats inside and another 3000 outside.

    Seats outside of the tents will certainly hear some of the music over the loudspeaker, but the atmoshere is certainly not the same as inside !
    During the rain, most of these seats outside will be un-covered!

    For reservations call :(089) 448 96 70
    FAX : (089) 448 35 87
    (from abroad : +49-89-448 96 70)

    Favorite Dish:
    I mainly go there in order to watch the scenery...
    and of course the Hofbräu-tent is a great place to meet Aloisius - the angel who was sent from heaven to deliver a message and some advices for the bavarian governement...

    ...but he went to Hofbräu-haus instead

    Fischer - Vroni: Fischer's Vroni fischt frische Fische

    by globetrott Written Aug 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fischer - Vroni is another one of my favorite places to go for a snack, as they roast all sorts of fishes in the traditional way with char-coal, as you may see it on my picture.

    And the whole area around the tent smells really great !!

    The tent is a bit smaller, but also less crowded with 2700 seats inside and another 700 seats outside.

    For reservations call : (089) 66 10 42 (wednesday & friday)
    Fax:(089) 65 25 34

    Favorite Dish: Various sorts of fishes are roasted fesh the whole day, and you actually pay the price according to the size.

    Beim Sedlmayr: another nice restaurant

    by globetrott Updated Aug 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beim Sedlmayr is a nice restaurant in Bavarian style. It once belonged to Walter Sedlmayr and was opened just a short time before he was murdered.
    (more about this great Bavarian actor under "general tips")

    Open :
    Mo-Fr 09.00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.
    Sa 08:00 a.m.-04:00p.m.
    closed on Sundays !

    They have just 120 seats - so it makes sense to reserve a table maybe :

    Tel:089 / 226219

    Favorite Dish: This is a place where ordinary people go and sometimes even Bavarian Schiki-Mickies...
    Prices are about average and the food is fine !

    My favorite ?
    Schweinsbraten & Semmelknödel

    Chinesischer Turm: when in the English Garden

    by richiecdisc Written Nov 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the big boy of beer gardens. The most famous and biggest to boot. Located right in the middle of Englishergarten, it seats 8000 thirsty customers. The name comes from the huge Chinese Tower that is its centerpiece and houses the Bavarian band that serenades patrons on weekends. Though a major tourist attraction, it retains much of its local flavor and is surprisingly not all that expensive.

    Favorite Dish: You can bring your own food to save money as is not only a local custom but one protected by law. You can also buy any number of Bavarian specialities like huge soft pretzels, raddishes, and various pork dishes. One great aspect of this beer garden is it offers some variety of beers, all brewed by local Hofbrau. My favorite is the Ur-Bock, a strong beer with a robust hoppy flavor at 6.50 Euros per liter.

  • Steinheil 16: Another tip dedicated to Gil ;-)

    by sabsi Updated Jan 23, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Half a year after I wrote the previous tip I knew that size does matters ;-) It got bigger....

    The "Steinheil 16" is a student pub in Steinheilstrasse which is legendary for its Schnitzels. Everybody seems to know about their size and their price. Hence it's extremely busy here in the evenings. When we visited on a Tuesday night there hardly ever was a free chair in the smallish pub. Staff was friendly, funny and quick - quite unbelieveable if you consider how busy they are!

    Favorite Dish: If you order a Schnitzel here you get more than you can eat in two days! The piece of meat which buries the chips underneath it is bigger than your plate! Please remember my advise: Share one! It's definitely enough for two people! The Schnitzel comes with a salad and chips or fried potatoes and costs only EUR 8.90. Luckily you get aluminium foil when you can't finish your meal. You will have enough food for at least one more day....

    Da Michéle: Family run Italian Place in a Suburb

    by claudia1975 Written Jan 11, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This family run Italian place is a real secret tip. It is hidden in a residential area in the city of Germering. They have great pizzas and especially good salads. In the summer a small beer garden-like outside seating area under old fruit trees is open for dining. Enjoy a good eal and definitely a desert like a “Tiramisu” and a Cappuccino or Espresso afterwards. The waiters are friendly and it is also interesting to watch other people.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite is the large salad with Parma-bacon, olives and tuna. But pizzas and also Lasagne are very good. Try a typical Italian desert afterwards ...

    Hirschgarten: Wonderful Place to Eat and Relax

    by travelfrosch Updated Jun 22, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here is an experience that is quintessentially Munich. This massive beer garden on the west side of town can be described as the neighborhood's living room. Enjoy a warm evening here, and you won't regret it. This place also has the advantage of being right on the main S-Bahn line at the "Laim" stop. Any S-Bahn (except S-7, S-20, or S-27) will get you here. This is definitely a viable place to enjoy your final hours in Munich before catching a night train from the Hauptbahnhof (4 S-Bahn stops away).

    UPDATE: I was able to enjoy the World Cup consolation game with other VTers in the Hirschgarten. Set up by Richie, the happy group had a great time. Thanks, Richie!

    Favorite Dish: There are several food stands to choose from, with choices ranging from chicken to pork to fish. As for beer, the three varieties of beer on tap are Augustiner, König Ludwig Hell, and Tegernseer Hofbräu. The latter brew is tasty and refreshing -- quite a find even among the excellent beers in Munich. You can find the Tegernseer brew at Schänke 5.

    Dukatz: Dukatz im Literaturhaus Restuarant and Bistro

    by dcwizard Written Feb 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dukatz is happening spot in the old town to suit your varied tastes. You can sit downstairs for a nice dinner, or go upstairs to the bistro for lighter fare or drinks. The restaurant and bistro share a large (almost cavernous) room in the recently renovated Literaturhaus, yet Dukatz manages to maintain a nice atmosphere. I enjoyed hanging out in the upstairs bistro, with a great view of the diners in the restaurant below and out the large windows to the street outside. A good place to recharge after touring the old town. I met some very nice locals in the bistro who were in a chatty mood and had plenty of suggestions for sightseeing in Munich.

    Favorite Dish: The asian salad was not too bad, though I think all of the bistro choices looked good.

    Cafe Glockenspiel: Coffee with a View

    by dcwizard Written Feb 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to enjoy a coffee with a great view, don't miss the Café Glockenspiel, which looks above the Marienplatz. Good coffee and pastries, friendly staff, and most of all great views of the Neues Rathaus (New City Hall) and its "Glockenspiel" make this a great choice while you explore the old town.

    Favorite Dish: Taste the great view with whatever you order!

    Hippodrom: It is too late to ride the horses

    by globetrott Written Aug 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hippodrom is a bit different from the other big tents, as it has also a champagne-bar and a nice decoration with wooden caroussel-horses and a lot more !

    I still remember the time, when real horses had a small area inside the tent, where they had to go around in a circle with drunken guests riding them....

    That time is over now, and also the smell inside the tent is a lot better now :-)

    The tent is a bit smaller than others and offers just 3200 seats inside and 1000 seats outside.

    Reservations are mostly a MUST there !!
    For reservations call :(089) 29 16 46 46
    Fax : 089) 29 54 42

    Favorite Dish: When you don't like beer - Hippodrom offers also Champagne and great wines at the bar !

    BRATWURSTHERZL: another nice place for a Bratwurst

    by globetrott Written Aug 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bratwurstherzl is a restaurant close to Viktualienmarkt.

    When you go there, have a closer look at the lovely facade of the building !

    Favorite Dish: Believe it or not :
    It is Bratwurst !! :-)

    Bratwurst served with Sauerkraut makes a great snack after a long walk through the city of Munich.

    And of course you should also try a Münchner "Brezn" (pretzl) - there are the thin, hard and crispy ones and there are also the soft ones, with thick dough, that ma be cut into 2 halfs and you may have butter in between - that is called "Butterbrezn"

    Self-service-restaurant KAUFHOF: one of the best views on Munich is free

    by globetrott Written Aug 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    in Kaufhof on Karlsplatz / Stachus you may go by lift or escalators to the 6th floor, where you have a great self-service-restaurant with an excellent view on Karlsplatz,Frauenkirche and a lot more.

    What makes me angry every time I am there is the fact, they charge quite a lot, when you want to powder your nose...

    Favorite Dish:
    The food there is really great, and what is the best for the tourists - most dishes are shown with photos, so you see in advance, what to expect, even if your German is not so very good.
    Potatoes, rice etc will be ready, but mostly the meat will be prepared freshly in front of your eyes.
    They also have a great variety of cakes and icecreams in the afternoon and every day they have a cheap meal and a cheap "cake&coffe-offer"
