Plantage! is located in the Freisinger Staatsforst on the northern edge of the city of Freising ??km north of Munich. Plantage! is a nice hobbit-like forest beer gardens with giant oak and ??buschen?? trees.
The restaurant has existed since ??1885??. In those days Royal hunters meet for a beer after their days of hard work. The name Plantage! refers to a fruit tree plantation that existed in at this location since 19th century. (does it still exist?)
The self-serviced area of the beer garden has 1200 seats with tables in different shapes and sizes situated partly in the forest and partly in a courtyard. People can sit on old-style fixed-to-the-ground benches, large round group tables or regular(conventional) beer garden benches.
One long food and beer stall sells typical Bavarian meals, vegetarian dishes and a wide selection of salads. Fresh Steckerlfisch is prepared on charcoal grill at a separate stall. The beer served is Weihenstephaner and costs €6 p/Maß.
On Sundays and public holidays live bands perform at the traditional "Musikfrühschoppen" from 1pm to 5pm. (usually what music??). A nearby attraction is a "Walderlebnispfad" (forest experience path) where one can learn more about the forest. Signs along the 3.5km path explain various trees and plants in the forest.
The beer garden is open daily from 10am until late ??midnight??. The kitchen is closed on Mondays (is restaurant also closed then??).
