“One of my favourite biergartens in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

If the weather is nice, you can do no better than sitting at the edge of the wee lake in Maising having a beer or meal at the Maisinger Seehof enjoying the sun or watching the sunset. While the menu is not large or as comprehensive as many other biergartens, the food is consistently excellent and even includes several options with fresh green salads (a rare commodity at Bavarian biergartens). I love the Käsespätzle here (egg noodle dumplings with cheese sauce... think homemade mac and cheese, with lumpier denser pasta), which is creamy and cheesy and comes with a large tasty salad. The smoked lake trout is also great on a summer afternoon.
They serve Perger juices, schorles and sodas (a very local organic drink manufacturer), and particularly special are the Apfel-, Birnenschorle (apple or pear juice mixed with mineral water) and Johannesbeerschorle (black currant version), which are on the cloudy and sour end of the spectrum. Extremely refreshing with only a hint of sweetness. Perfect.
But while the food is excellent, the real reason to go is to sit at the lake and enjoy the quiet nature, far from any busy roads, you can even take a dip in the lake after (or before?) your meal, or enjoy a hike around the lake.

They are only open from April until mid-October, and are closed on Mondays
