Party Earth Hirschgarten Review

The Scene

Hirschgarten in Neuhausen-Nymphenburg, Munich is a beautiful park & one of the world’s biggest beer gardens. Park it in Munich with Party Earth.

Less than a mile south of the famed Nymphenburg Palace, tree-lined Hirschgarten is a testament to duality: a simple but beautiful park arm-in-arm with one of the largest beer gardens in the entire world.

Harkening back to its former incarnation as a hunting ground for noblemen, deer still roam a feeding area near the original hunting lodge, itself converted centuries ago to an eponymous restaurant with outdoor drinking space for eight thousand happy stein hoisters.

Customary to a facility this size, visitors will find all types tucked under Königlicher Hirschgarten’s many chestnut trees – from packs of college kids toasting loudly to ratty backpackers to moneyed older couples quietly reading in the shade – but just about everyone has a glistening liter of Augustiner or Kaltenberger on the table.

Crowd size can surge at random intervals throughout the day, and summer months are unceasingly busy, but even when the outdoor projection screens tune in a big game, finding a seat is rarely an issue. Beer munchies can be quelled quickly with traditional Bavarian grub, especially during the restaurant’s nightly all-you-can-eat buffet.

When the weather cooperates, weary tourists in need of a post-meal nap take to the ample expanse of grass, while those in need of a little more action to burn off their hops hit Hirschgarten’s nearby skate park, grinding out their calories with hard flips and pop shoves.

Tip from Lucas:

Just like back in the old days, you are responsible for your own stein. Grab one from the big racks outside, wash it in the fountain, and then hit the keg for a top off.

  • Crowd

    Diverse mix of college kids, soccer fans, savvy tourists, skaters, older moneyed locals, and traditional barrel-chested Bavarians with magnificent mustaches, 20s to 60s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Special events held regularly in the beer garden, including traditional Bavarian bands during holidays and other big celebrations.

    Large projection screens in the beer garden for sports viewing.

    Skate park and a deer viewing/feeding area.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Menu of traditional Bavarian grub in the Königlicher Hirschgarten.

  • Prices

    Grub €5.50–€19. Beer €3.50–€8 .

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual is the norm, though well-to-do locals tend to err on the upscale side.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any sunny day or any time a big soccer match is on the projection screens.

  • Close By

    Schloss Nymphenburg (“Nymphenburg Palace,” Schloß Nymphenburg 1) is the largest Baroque palace in Germany and features an adjoining park and nearby botanical garden. Backstage (Wilhelm-Hale-Straße 38) is a sprawling complex with both indoor and outdoor spaces for drinking, live concerts, movie showings, and club nights.

BEER AND DEER!
Amster M. Nov 18, 2012
YOU MUST GO HERE! The most adorable slice of Bavaria is the biggest beer garden in the world. Biggest means it's never crowded, AND it's outside the center so the beer is cheaper. And you get to DRINK BEER, WITH DEER! Not exactly with them, but they're all around you, and it's crazy. I love this place so much that I make sure to stay within walking distance when I come to Munich in the summer. It's low key, no oompa bands, but no cheesy tourist trinkets either. Just as cool as the Chineese Tower, but I think cooler because it's local. Go!
