If you want to experience a true Bavarian beer garden without the tourists, this is one to visit. About a 20 minute walk from the S7 train stop, it offers an indoor restaurant as well as a large outdoor garden with self service food. We enjoy the hot sausages, ribs, chicken, and just about all the entrees. The 1 liter... More

Biergarten in a very nice place, but the food is just sufficient. Only the bier is good. Prices above the average.

I've been coming to this place since I was a child. The beergarden is great in the summer because they have live Jazz music and awesome Bavarian food (I particularly recommend the spare ribs with extra sauce and a large Breze and the Steckerlfisch). The restaurant is nice if you want to have a more formal meal with service. The... More

This beer garden which offers outdoor and indoor seating is a nice place to enjoy the Bavarian specialities. I tried the pumpkin soup, the pork steak and the duck and they all tasted lovely. Service is efficient and welcoming. Although a bit far from the city yet a visit to said beer garden is recommended.

A friend who has lived in Germany for many years and near Munich for quite some time has always liked the beer garden at Waldwirtschaft. He calls it the Jazz Beer Garden. Anyway, he asked me to arrange a dinner for a number of his friends because he will be retiring early next year and is returning to the States.... More

The "Waldwirtschaft" has been around since 1981, with the building itself being dated back to 1830, and is as popular as ever, particularly in summer when the "Biergarten" (beergarden) is operational. During the beergarden season there is Live Jazz Music which makes this place unique. You can sit in the self-service area or in the waited area, which is rather... More

One of the most interesting Biergärten in Munich, the Waldwirtschaft (or "Wa-Wi" as it's known to the locals) is situated in a beautiful woods overlooking the picturesque Isar River. You can get there by S-bahn (S-7 to Grosshesselohe then about a ten minute walk). If you have a bicycle, or can rent one, this Biergarten can be a good destination... More

We took the S7 to Grosshesselohe and walked here, not the easiest place to find, we were served beer by a real character from Argentina, wanted to settle down but the pesky wasps were massing for attack, in the 15 minutes we were there 3 people were stung, left our beers and walked back and had a better experience at...

I only can say that this Biergarten is still the nicest in Munich. Sure Hirschgarten ore Chinesischer Turm are also nice this one is still number one.
