The only reason I rated this a 3 star is because we didn't get a chance to really experience this place like we wanted. We didn't know that they didn't do brewery tours every day. They only do them on certain days and we went...More

A lot of reasons to visit this biergarten. Apparently, it is the oldest "continously operated" biergarten in the world. Even so, it has a pretty modern touch, and the environment is quite upscale as far as biergartens go. For a night out with friends, or...More

The restaurant has three sections: inside eating, outside eating, and round the corner of the outside eating area (still in the garden) is a walk-up window if you want to get something quicker than using the sit-down and order service. The multiple options for vegetarians...More

Lovely walk through the gardens. Great views of Freising and Munich with the countryside beyond. Must stop at the beer garden to sample a Wienstephaner beer!

The tour was all in English - You should not have any difficulty at all! We did not spend a lot of time in the town as we were coming for just the tour from Munich.
