There is a reason why I’m currently not keeping up with my blog: It’s summer! Which means that I spend my days at one of the many lakes close to Munich (my favourite is Tegernsee) or at the Isar doing barbeque with my friends. And if I’m not at a lake or at the Isar, you will most likely find me in one of the many Biergarten (Beer Garden) Munich has to offer. Yesterday for example I spent my afternoon at the Muffat Biergarten close to Isartor, which offers organic food.
Here are some Biergärten I can recommend to any visitor of Munich – these are easy to integrate in any sight seeing plans:
- Chinesischer Turm
Located at the Englischer Garten (Munich English Garden). Best way to get there by doing as many checks on your sight seeing list as possible: Enjoy a nice walk from the Hofgarten heading to the Surfing Spot at Eisbach, then passing by the Japanese Tea House and having a walk at the English Garden including a short visit at the Monopteros so that when you finally arrive to the Chinesischer Turm, you deserve a cold beer. Highlight: An old Marry-go-round hidden in a corner of the Biergarten.
If you don’t want to have a seat at the Chinesischer Turm already, just continue your walk until you approach a small “lake” where you can have rides on a boat, but also have a rest at their beautiful Biergarten next to it.
After visiting some of the Museums nearby (Lenbachhaus, Glyptothek, Pinakotheken etc.) you can head for a beer to the Löwenbräu Biergarten.
4. Biergarten at Augustiner Keller
Not far away from Hauptbahnhof, you’ll find Munich’s oldest Biergarten. Definitely worth a visit.
Of course there are many more options, e.g. the Aumeister or the Waldwirtschaft (latter one with a nice view of the Isar and Live Music), but the above ones are really easy to reach. Note: While you are allowed by law to bring your own food to the Biergarten – you cannot bring your own drinks/beer! Makes sense, right?!
