I Said Beer, Not Deer, My Dear!

One of the many claims to fame of the Hirschgarten is its deer, but this is just the beginning. The German word hirsch translated means deer, of course, but the real spectacle of the "deer" garden is the fact that it is a beer garden that seats more than 8000 people. It is Munich’s largest beer garden as well as its largest open air restaurant. It sits in one of the old hunting grounds of Schloss Nymphenburg, west of the heart of town – a 200 hectacre (494 acre) park with hunting lodges and lakes.
