Came here based on a few recommendation and definitely wasn't disappointed.
This is a huge biergarten with lots of chestnut trees, hundreds of tables and benches, tons of food options, and a fairly good selection of beers as well.
Given the name, you have a pretty good idea of what beers are served here. Unlike some other Augustiner spots, this location serves up the Edelstoff...which is a nice change of pace and equally as good as the normal helles. In addition, they also have the weiss (which looks like a dunkel weiss, FYI) available, however they're poured from bottles. I don't think Augustiner does draft versions of that beer. The dunkel and helles are both missing, but that's typical for most gartens. It's pretty rare to find an entire line-up. I'm not 100% sure, but I think they might have the bottled pils as well.
Food is available at a series of stands. Pork knuckles, pretzels, obatzda, leberkase, frites, ribs, etc. are all available and the prices aren't too bad.
It's only a few blocks from the central station so if you're only going to be in Munich for a couple of hours, this is easily the best option.
For that matter, even for a weeklong trip - this spot's great just because it's the prototypical biergarten.
Plus, supposedly there's a lot of Bavarian political clout at this spot. People watching can be a lot of fun.

This place was "ok", this being said i got there late and it was cold so no one was there really. The beer is whatever, Augustiner is kind of weak compared to the other german beers. I would have enjoyed it more if the place was crowded. It was strange seeing a sea of empty benches and imagining the mayhem that would occur if those benches were full... I wanted that mayhem.... my parents went to the inside part and said it was the best place ever.... but I can only vouch for what i experienced

This ended up being my favorite place to drink in Munich during my trip. Location is nice, just enough out of the downtown to miss the worst of the masses. Very nice outdoor area that even features a projector for soccer games, can get quite crowded and rowdy during nice weather and big games. Didn't go to the indoor area as the weather was awesome. Standard Munich beer selection and standard Munich tourist prices. Standard beer garden self serve. Food was slightly better than the hofbrau and slightly cheaper.
My favorite of the beer gardens.

Some friends and I stopped in here after having spent a few days at the Oktoberfest. Ive had their brews in the US and knew they were close by to where we were staying. A small uphill walk, with trees overhanging it to the front door. This appeared to look like a traditional German restaurant. We were seated in the room to the left, where we found out was a huge bonus. It was wooden clad, sort of dim, with lots of tables packed tightly, almost looking like a hunting lodge. Before we even sat down we heard and saw what seemed to be a party going on. Accordians, singing, swaying, clapping. The whole room was into it. We recieved our litres promptly and soon joined in the festivities. There were people from all different countries, all there having the best time. The food was outstanding and had the home-made taste. Baskets of warm soft pretzels served with obatzda cheese spread and many litres of beer to follow. Their Marzen was crisp, and sweet and ever so easy to drink. We stayed for a couple of hours enjoying the great beer, delicious food, and amazing atmosphere. Ill never forget this stop.

stopped here during a work trip to germany last week and was very glad I did. very typical german brauhaus with good beer. the restaurant takes up almost an entire block since there is a hug outdoor area. sadly since it is winter nothing was happening outside but I can imagine what the summer and octoberfest must be like.
as you enter the brauhaus there are three smaller rooms in the front and a huge room in the back. we went to the large room in the back at about 5:30 with almost no one there and by 7:00 it was packed. beer was good although as expected there were only 3 or 4 beers and the food was fairly good as well.
overall i would definitely recommend it if you are in munich.

Headed here after visiting the very busy Braustuben, on the evening of 02/10/2010, in search of some urban paradise relaxation.
The main feature of this place is obviously the biergarten with round tables and seating aplenty underneath the chestnut trees.
There are 2 service areas, as you walk in toward the lefthand side, there are chickens and masses of edelstoff being dispensed and a larger self service area ahead on the other side of the biergarten next to the restuarant building. This area serves a lot more food and some other bottled beer offerings if memory serves. We made do with a huge pretzel which i think is the best i have ever had in Munchen! Shame they were not serving the Marzen from the wood, only the Edelstoff
Even in the dark of the evening underneath the spotlights in the cool October evening, it was till plenty busy with revellers but easy enough to find a free table. I can just imagine this place being the perfect spot on a Sunday afternoon, bringing some food and enjoying a mass!
Didnt look into the restaurant building so cant comment on that. Only prob i had, was the toilet was so far away, and after a few mass, its definitely an issue but it is a huge biergarten!
A wonderful experience in a true mecca to good beer, a must visit in Munchen, day or night!

Went here one day when the fest was too crowded. Really nice authentic biergarten right outside of the fest. A mass was only 6.90 euro which was a good deal considering. Everything is self ordered at the bars where beers were filled. Really nice authentic German family outing was experienced here. Great weather plays a role as it is all outdoors. The biergarten is shaded with chestnut trees and is right outside downtown Munich. Really great place to take I. Your travels over a beer or two. Highly recommended.

I have been to this place on a hand full of occasions including my recent trip to Germany and I really love it. You walk in to this huge beer garden with loads of ancient chesnut trees and you simply gasp. Their are several kiosk food booths where you can choose from chicken, sausage and a few other selections. The highlight, though, is the beer. There is a huge German filling one liter mugs from a barrel.
The beer is wonderful and the food is very good as well. This place is a must see if ever in Munich. It is only a short walk, or tram ride, from the train station.

This is a very popular place in good weather for beer and food, both waiter service or self service. As usual in German Beer Gardens, tables with table cloths have waiter service, those without are self service.
We went on a Wednesday evening around 7pm, and it was very busy, but managed to find a table for waiter service OK near the Stube entrance.
Service was good in the area we sat in, and the beer was excellent. In fact, I would say the Augustiner beer tastes better here than in the Grossgaststatte on Neuhauserstrasse, though not sure why that should be.
We really enjoyed our couple of hours here, the food was good and reasonable price for Munich, and the atmosphere was good - lively and friendly without getting too rowdy! Would definately visit again.
Just a 10 minute walk along Arnulfstrasse from the Hauptbahnhof, just past the BR Radio Station Buildings.

I was in Munich over the 4th of July in 2006 and watched the World Cup semi-final between Germany and Italy (or was it France?). The place was jammed packed with people and while Germany lost it still got rowdy and fun. I didn't eat food, but the beer was so good I kept staring at it in amazement instead of watching the game. The service was good in spite of all the people. My beer was delivered promptly without fuss. I was a little put off my the 6 euro per mass at the time, but in retrospect it is a deal. Give me a break, I was 19 and backpacking. Either way, I love the place and can't wait to go back.
