Biergarten Mühlenpark is located in Garching near Munich about 17km north along the Isar river coming from central Munich. The beer garden is set within the boundaries of an historical lumber and corn mill property dating back to at least 1229, where farmers from around the area used to process their harvest. The mill stopped operation in 1970. The property is owned by the Bavarian state, which built a leisure park in this area and set up the beer garden in 1975. The current and second leaseholder has managed this small and often crowded beer garden since 1979.
There are 650 seats on old-style fixed-to-the-ground tables mostly shaded by large trees and some roofed areas which are part of the original mill structure. An old wooden wheel from the original mill rotates in a stream running along one side of the beer garden. Unlike most other beer gardens, there are no waitress serviced tables; only a self-serviced area. The kitchen in the food stall offers a wide selection of home cooked Bavarian meals. Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick) is prepared over a charcoal grill on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The Hacker-Pschorr beer served from the tap is sold at a very reasonable price of €5 p/Maß.
Mühlenpark is open seasonally from middle of March until middle of October everyday when the weather is good from 10:30am until 10:30pm.
