In German language, a “wirtsgarten” is a waitress serviced outdoors restaurant, sometimes below trees. Unlike a traditional Munich beer garden, a wirtsgarten does not include a self-serviced area and does not have tables or benches allocated to guests who wish to bring their own meals according to Munich tradition.
There are countless wirtsgartens in and around the Munich area which arguably advertise themselves incorrectly as 'biergartens'. Wirtsgartens masquerading as beer gardens are often found in city guides as well as in local and international media featuring the Munich lifestyle. This often misleads visitors seeking to experience a typical Munich or Bavarian beer garden to some wirtsgarten instead.
