“Typically Bavarian!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I doubt that the Hirschgarten is worth the trip out of the city (not far!, and easily combined with Nymphenburg Palace, unless you would like to see an enormous Beer Garden, and see lots of real Bavarians, having a wonderful time. This is, of course possible closer to Munich, in the Bier Kellers, and in the English Garden too.
The Hirschgarten is amazing, - the largest, and in a park like atmosphere, with lots of trees.
Quieter during the day, you can take your picnic, and just buy the beer, or try typical rustical Bavarian food. Even watching the Waitress, carry lots of the big beer glasses, without spilling any beer, is amazing.
Not being a beer drinker, I went along in a party of Germans, and had a wonderful time.
It is very noisy, and packed on summer evenings, and parking close by, is impossible.
Walking through, during the day, and enjoying watching the deer, - I loved it!
If you go out to see Nymphenburg Palace, you can walk across to the Hirschgarten in minutes.
Weekends are very very busy in the summertime, and it can be very hot, if you go in the evening, try to arrive by about 6pm latest, so you can find somewhere with tree shade!

“Good Bier!!!!!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

After many hours of reading tripadvisor and planning our trip I put this place on the radar. Wasn't dissapointed with the atmosphere. I am not a big drinker, but I did have a light beer that I truly enjoyed. We were there a week before Oktoberfest, so the major crowds wasn't there. We really liked the animal park, seeing the deer and rams. You have to go here, it is wonderfull

“Best and largest Beergarden in Munich”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Most have heard about the famous beergarden culture in Bavaria and especially Munich.
Sitting outside in the largest beergarden of Munich (some thousand seats) underneath cooling trees. enjoying great beer and food this is what you will find in the Hirschgarten close to Nymphenburg castle. It is a must see and must visit if you wanna enjoy bavarian life .

“Best beer garten”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I think this is the best beer garden in Munich. Good food, very good Munich beer. What need more!? Thanks for the Sban Hirschgarten station, its easy reach from the city center.
