Beer Gardens as They Should Be

One thing I love about Munich is that you can find thousands of different kinds of beer gardens. This is no exaggeration. Every beer garden seems to take on its own personality – the beer, food, setting, people, ambiance, theme, etc. One of the best is La Villa at Bamberger Haus, which is in Luitpold Park in North Schwabing. The century-old building is a perfect setting on a sunny day to enjoy an Augistiner Beer. Throughout the beer garden are casual lounge chairs that strake a stark contrast to the buildings neo-baroque building. However, this is not the only contrast. For example, inside you will find true Bavarian food, but mixed with a menu of International fare. And in the basement, you have a Cantina – serving Brazilian and Mexican food. The building, which is owned by the city of Munich, was completely destroyed in WWII, but was restored in 1983.
