The Waldrestaurant and beer garden Bergl lies hidden in a forest in Oberschleißheim. The location has a farm-like feeling with stables and horses grazing on an enclosed field behind the restaurant.
The Bergl is one of the oldest inn's of the area and the building has a great history. In 1599, Herzog Wilhelm V, ordered a chapel to be built in honor of Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuitenorden (The Society of Jesus). Nearby a Klause, an isolated residence for the members of this society, was built. From 1702 the location was used by the Franziskaner monks for confessions and as a meeting place. In 1802 beer and food was sold outside, which is when the restaurant and beer garden history began. In 1884 the great-grandfather of the current Innkeeper took over the management, as he preferred this beer garden over his previously owned beer garden Menterschwaige. Unfortunately, the large beer garden from those days has been much reduced over time.
The Bergl beer garden has 500 seats outside and 150 in the restaurant building. The charming serviced area is located in front of the building. Guests of the self-serviced area can decide whether to sit at tables either on the grass lawn or on traditional gravel ground. The beer served is Hacker-Pschorr which costs €6.40 p/Maß (April 2013).
The beer garden is open from 10am until 11pm and closed on Wednesday and Thursday. The owner closes the beer garden for about three weeks holiday in August.
