Schwabing, Munich –
Named for the tall, centuries-old Chinese pagoda rising at its center, Chinese Tower is reportedly the second largest beer garden in the world and can accommodate up to 3,000 guests.
Situated in the middle of Englischer Garten, the outdoor bar features row upon row of picnic tables that are regularly flooded with a mix of locals, students, business people, and travelers.
As is true of most beer gardens, everything is self-service, so patrons have to line up at the various counters for drinks, food, and snacks before weaving their way to a table under the trees.
On the weekends, a traditional brass oom-pah band entertains the crowd from its perch on top of the pagoda, creating an even livelier atmosphere for the crowd relaxing in the sun over liters of Bavarian beer and plates of Nuremberg sausage.
Mix of business people, students, and travelers of all ages.
Live oom-pah band or German oldies.
Traditional Munich and Bavarian dishes including their famous Nuremberg sausages with sauerkrautsalat.
Menu €4–€15. Drink deposit token €1. Beer €6.90/liter.
All the tables are outside, so this is the place to be on a nice evening.
