Beer Gardens

In summer, Bavaria’s “liquid food” is served in beer gardens. And summer unofficially begins during Lent in March, when the breweries market their bock beers such as Salvator, Maximator, or Triumphator. No matter what you drink – ale, light beer, or Weißbier (wheat beer) from Augustiner, Löwenbräu, or Paulaner – if you haven’t sat on a wooden bench beneath the chestnut trees on a mild summer’s night and sipped a Maß (a litre) of beer while enjoying the aroma of pork sausage or grilled fish, you simply don’t know Munich.

Beer Gardens

  • Daily in season, usually mid-May–late Sep, from 10 or 11am to 11pm, sometimes later. Last orders usually 10:30pm
