The best way to watch the World Cup, maybe even better than being there in person, is from under a chestnut tree in a Munich Biergarten with a nice cold mug of "Helles" blond lager beer.
And if the Biergarten in question is the Hirschgarten, you'll know the beer is good, because it is either Augustiner (considered by many -- including yours truly -- to be the best Munich has to offer) or Tegernseer (brewed at the Ducal brewery in Tegernsee, a resort area about an hour south of Munich, in the foothills to the Alps and just about a mountain valley away from Austria).
However, in order to get that liter mug of beer, you'll have to go to where the washed empty mugs are stored, behind the place where the beer is sold, select a mug, rinse it in the running water tank to get rid of any dust that might have accumulated, and take it to the Kellner who is dispensing the suds (and oh, you'll have to pay for the beer, too, but it's not that expensive).
There are plenty of seats (it's the largest Biergarten in Germany, and can seat 8,000 people, but it's still comfy), and you can watch the World Cup games on a large projector TV screen.
If you get hungry, you can buy food at the Biergarten, including some great Haxe (pig's knuckle), or like other traditional Munich Biergaerten you can bring your own food (but not drink) with you. You'll see lots of families that bring a picnic basket and make a day's outing of it. And there are even some deer to look at (deer = Hirsch; thus Hirschgarten).
And if there's no World Cup game, it's still a great place to just sit back and relax on a summer's afternoon.
