Really big Biergarten in Englischer Garten. It’s an expensive self service place. You take what you wish from the desk of the bar and go through counter and pay. Then you take it at a free table, if you can find one. Only a few Hofbräu beers available but the food was decent. A band was playing some german oompah tunes at the Chinesischer Turm. Basically it’s a huge tourist trap but still quite ok because of the ambiance.

Visited October 2011. Huge Biergarten that serves HB beers. Great stop on a visit in the Englischer Garten. Efficient buffet service.

Huge biergarten offering a wide choice of food and beers from Hofbrau. Live music played by a traditional bavarian band. Great ambiance. Worth visiting.

Revisited this hustle and bustle, and often confusing biergarten late last year and for the first time it seemed relatively quiet and serene aside the traditional Bavarian band pumping out ’Vaterland’ classics up in the Chinesischer Turm itself. Beer comes fast and furious with three beers and a radler for choice this time around, the prices average for Munich. Food is typical authentic fare but substantial in portions and delicious. Watching the Hofbräu draught horses pass on by is a bonus. But the best part of this place is the ability to continuously move about the park and return once thirsty. The surrounding grounds with the Japanisches Teehaus, inland surfing, the Monopteros and Steinerne Bank, the Kleinhesseloher See and the Hirschau with its two smaller biergartens. The Schönfeldwiese is a bit of an eye-opener, though, with some Bavarians preferring the all over tan effect by sunbaking nude. Overall I love the whole of this urban parkland, and the Chinesischer Turm just makes it more fun for adults for want a bustling bevvie or two watching nature pass them by.

Immense biergarten in the sprawling Englischer Garten, which itself is a nice place to hide from the summer heat. This biergarten serves beers from Hofbräu München and may have an out-of-season special brew available while the Hofbräuhaus in the altstadt has moved on to the next seasonal. LOTS of people gather here to have a snack, a brew and a conversation. Quite an impressive sight.

A decent biergarten, but was there during the off-season so wasn’t terribly exciting. Usual Hofbrau beers, and good Bavarian food. Decent place, would love to go back during warmer weather.

If you’re walking around at English Gardens, and want a nice, cosy, quiet place to have a drink or lunch, you should come here. If you’re a beer lover, you will find nothing here. The staff is polite, but they didn’t give us the menu, and when we said we wanted to drink beer, he brought us Hofbräu Original, not even asking which is the beer we wanted (!?).

Nice place, nice scenery, nice music, nice beer (slightly above average, but the HB here is a gem compared to Spaten and Löwenbräu!!). Nice for a detour......

This place is my favorite place to be on a summer night in Munich. The beer is just average (or slightly below average when compared to other Munich breweries) but the food is delicious, the music is awesome, and the scenery can’t be beat.

It’s one of the more tourist-driven of the Munich beergardens, but the Hofbrau is very tasty (although the service can be snide and rude - I get the impression staff hate the tourists) and the background Tower provides what in the era of Film was called a "Kodak Moment". I’ve been here many times, and have always enjoyed it. Having said that, the locals will tell you it’s not the BEST beergarden in the Englischer Garten and they are correct. On a sunny afternoon, however, while on a stroll through this beautiful huge park, it’s a beautiful piece of the world. People in this city really know how to live, I think. On weekends and some evenings, a brass band will entertain you from their stage inside the Turm (tower). I suspect it’s a better gig than the ear-splitting Hofbrauhaus!
