Although the Taxisgarten 1,500 capacity beer garden has been at the Taxis Street in the middle of Munich’s Neuhausen neighbourhood for over eighty years, it still likes to see itself as an insider’s tip. Like many of the most popular beer gardens of the Bavarian capital, the tables and benches of the beer garden enjoy the shade that the crowns of old chestnut trees are generously spreading.
The crowd at the beer garden is a mix of families with children, old-school Bavarian traditionalists and big city hipsters. Most of them share the affinity to a Hofbrau Helles and the eclectic menu. The menu includes Steckerlfisch (fresh from the Tegernsee Lake) for €3.90 for 100 g, the obligatory Schweinshaxn (to educate yourself about traditional Bavarian meals, check out our Bavarian Food Glossary) costs €7.40, but you can also have spare ribs (€13.50) at the Taxisgarten. If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, you also have a decent choice of meals to choose from. As mentioned, the various kinds of beer come from the Bavarian state owned Hofbrau brewery and a Mass Helles will cost you €8.
If you are visiting the Taxisgarten as a group of ten or more people, you can reserve a table for yourselves, provided each person spends at least some €6 during the visit. The beer garden is easy to reach by U-Bahn, just exit at the Gern station (Tizianstr.).
