The Gutshof Menterschwaige beer garden is located between Harlaching and Grünwald on a plateau above the river Isar. The historically listed former royal estate is one of the oldest beer gardens in Munich. Gutshof Menterschwaige is a popular resting place for bikers and hikers during their excursions along the Isar.

Gutshof Menterschwaige was first documented in 1012, about 150 years before Munich was founded. In 1632, during the Thirty Years War, the estate was destroyed by the Swedes. Elector Ferdinand Maria passed the remains of the estate onto Count Maximilian von Kurz. For the years to follow the estate served as the Royal Household of the Wittelsbacher family. In 1803 the estate was extended by the building of an inn, which soon became famous, especially amongst artists and noblemen.

The beer garden has about 2,000 seats under large chestnut trees in the self-serviced area. Guests can sit either on regular tables or beer garden benches. The roofed, wooden terrace in the served area has 150 seats. The food stalls of the self-serviced area offer Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick), meat and sausage specialties grilled over beechwood and sweet delights such as crêpe and Auszogne. A Maß Löwenbräu Hell (lager) costs €7.90 (May 2016). Every Wednesday a Maß beer and a portion spareribs cost only €17 (July 2017) - but only when the weather is nice.

A small house situated next to Gutshof Menterschwaige, the Lola Montez House, is full of history. It was the location of the smallest royal blacksmith and a place where King Ludwig I was hiding his mistress the dancer Lola Montez.
