Waldwirtschaft literary means Forest Inn. The beer garden with its 2,500 seats is located in Großhesselohe on a plateau overlooking the Isar valley below. The beer garden is well known having bands playing live jazz music daily when the weather is good.
In 1995 the beer garden fought succesfully against the closing time at 9pm. The so-called beer garden revolution allows Waldwirtschaft to play music until 11pm. Due to the music the beer is a bit more expensive than elsewhere and already by lunchtime on Sundays the beer garden is usually packed. A Maß Spaten Hell costs on a plateau in 7 Euros. The weißbier is Franziskaner. For those who bring their own food, the beer garden offers a BBQ station where steaks and sausages can be prepared by the guests themselves.
