In summer this is propably one of the most relaxing places in Munich to have a beer and some traditional food. No service, just self-service. There is a traditional brass band playing from time to time. Although it is always crowded and they only have pretty boring Hofbräu beer, I still always enjoy my stay. Not recommended as a place for good beer, but as a place for enjoying the Munich summer in a classic beer garden.

Visited April, 2013. Huge biergarten near the Chinese pavilion. Tremendous number of people. Only one beer available that day, a helles. But combined with the atmosphere under the trees, the music, the friendly crowd, it was a great time. Recommended for the experience, if not for any particular beer.

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.

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.
