Königlicher Hirschgarten is the largest beer garden in Munich and has about 9,200 seats and green open spaces close by. The unique thing with the beer gardens in Munich is that guests are allowed to bring their own food, which means you only need to buy drinks. Grilled chicken, sausage and knuckle of pork are reasonably priced.
Perhaps most people associate Munich with beer, and there certainly are a lot of breweries and beer halls in the city. But don't miss Munich's classic high-calorie everyday cooking. Schweinshaxe is a roasted ham hock or "pork knuckle," and it goes well with sauerkraut and Knödel, which are boiled dumplings. We also recommend Apfelstrudel (apple strudel) and custard or a Dampfnudel (a kind of cream bun with chocolate or vanilla custard) for dessert.
