REFRESHMENT: That's me at the Hirsch garten
This is the biggest beer garden in Munich, and most people think it's one of the best.
Up to 8000 folks can be seated in the great outdoors of Munich’s west.
The garden sits in a sprawling 40ha park between Nymphenburg Palace and the main S-Bahn line.
It's still a bit of a Munich secret as most tourists can’t be bothered venturing out to find it.
I assure you it’s well worth the effort. Delicious food and beer, an inviting atmosphere and more tradition that you can shake a stick at make this one of Munich’s best.
