Michaeligarten is right on the lake in the Ostpark, making it perfect for a nice stroll or bike-ride and beer afterwards.
The playground is great, although probably a little too tough/big for small ones! It also has the best nappy changing facilities of any beer garden, if you're bringing a very little one with you.
Mixed salads are wonderful here, and the Krustenbraten is the best we've ever had from any beer garden. Not a whole lot of tourists here compared to others. Usually plenty of tables available, even on a busy day (shade negotiable, of course). All in all, a great hidden treasure of Munich.
I really like this beer garden but 1) it's a real schlepp from city centre, and 2) they serve Löwenbräu. Two strikes, Michaeli, two strikes...
But soft! Lieth a playground in yon reach? Be we neighboured by lakey goodness? Do my eyes deceive, or doth a stage/bandstand thingy lie dead centre, that minstrels might amuse us, humble drinky peeps? YEA!
Dishware, thou art no longer my expensive, Pfand-consuming foe, for MichaeliGarten knows no such burden! Nor must one his own table clear, said service being rendered by (sometimes, usually not so) merry gentlemen (term being loosely applied, but hey, they get the job done).
'Tis a happy haven for families, and a merry haunt for friends. If you find yourself lost to the east of Munich, make rest here.
