The main building of Hirschau opened under the name of “Zum Hasenstall” (meaning to the rabbit cage) in 1840, at which time it served mainly workers of a nearby wood factory. As over the years more and more locals discovered the inn, the name changed to simply Hirschau and the beer garden was opened.
The beer garden with its 2,500 seats is located in Hirschau, a quite park area of the English Garden in the centre of Munich. The beer garden is a popular location amongst families and visitors of the park. Besides a few chestnut trees large sun umbrellas shade the wooden tables and beer benches. On sunny days fresh Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick) can be bought at the entrance. Live jazz bands perform Wednesday and Friday from 5pm, Saturday from 2pm and Sunday from 1pm. Major football tournaments are shown a large screen in the beer garden or, depending on the weather, in the “Kaisersaal” inside the main building. The beer served is Spaten and a Maß costs €6.90.
The beer garden is open daily from 11am until 1am.
