Classic Bavarian beergarden tradition with passion and heart

The Schwabengarten in Leinfelden

Beer garden specialties with vacation feeling right on your doorstep

On beautiful summer days, it`s so much fun to go on a relaxed outing to the beer garden. With traditional tasty beer garden food, such as grilled ham hocks, curry sausage or R20;Brettljause" (typical Austrian mountain dish) and in good company, you quickly forget the day and simply relax and go with the flow. The Schwabengarten is also an excellent location for special entertainment events, with its unique mix of events, live music ranging from jazz to rock, and even German beer garden music. All through the season, visitors can expect a varied program to suit every taste and every age.

A real beach, a rustic Alpine meadow, and an adventure playground for children and parents

From April to October, the Schwabengarten is an ideal destination for the whole family. A beach with real white sand, comfortable beach chairs, and ice-cool drinks served on the paradise-like Schwabenstrand (Swabian beach) give you that real vacation feeling but without the jetlag. Kids can play around on the large adventure playground which is covered with mulch to reduce the risk of accidents. While they play, parents can enjoy a relaxed beer garden ambience in the pleasant seating areas and keep a watchful eye on their offspring. The rustic Schwabengarten Alm (Alpine meadow hut) has a unique architecture, providing an inviting location to enjoy relaxed company, or an après-ski atmosphere when the weather is not so sunny.

Tasty food and beverages from the best beer garden tradition

Whether you are looking for delicate or savory dishes, light or dark beer, the rich menu of the Schwabengarten cuisine has just the right thing to suit your taste. Enjoy tasty draft beers in the open air, or choose from many savory dishes, such as a huge ham hock with cabbage (from local fields), and dumplings; or original Bavarian white sausages; or a Brettljause (Austrian mountain dish consisting of various cold sausages and pickles with bread); or curry sausage, and much more. There are also plenty of small snacks, for example pretzels fresh from the oven, beer garden radishes, or an O´batzdem (soft cheese dip) with freshly baked bread. We also offer freshly picked salads, vegetarian or traditional Flammkuchen (type of pizza from Alsace), delicious desserts, cake, and from Monday to Friday, a tasty lunch menu.

A new culinary highlight this season is Viennese schnitzel with an original Austrian breadcrumb coating.

Cozy, mountain feeling in the rustic mountain hut, no matter what the weather

If you are longing for a mountain feeling and après-ski atmosphere, then you`ll find it at the Schwabengarten, even without the mountains. The cozy Schwabengarten Alm, with its typical mountain hut architecture, is almost a surefire guarantee for good humor.  It's always worth visiting the Schwabengarten as the Alm offers a protective roof whenever the sun disappears behind a cloud. And if necessary, the Alm is even heated. But when the sun shines in a blue sky, there`s no better place to relax than on the superb Alm terrace with its giant parasol.

Back-to-nature children`s playground with pleasant seating areas for parents

The owners of the Schwabengarten have several children, so they know just what children love - and what is important for those watching over them. That is why the large adventure playground was extended for the new beer garden season and the ground was "padded" with bark mulch to prevent nasty accidents. Now our little visitors can romp and frolic to their hearts`  content and try out their skills on the swings and slides, or in the sandpit, or play with the large  wooden Mikado and other play equipment during the summer months. Parents can keep a watchful eye on their darlings from the comfortable seating areas directly next to the playground and enjoy the culinary benefits of the beer garden.

Relax on the Leinfelden beach and watch the sunset

The newly designed beach area, with its real white sand, beach chairs, and straw umbrellas, give you the feeling you are really on vacation. When you are holding a chilled drink in your hand, wiggling your toes in the soft sand, and enjoying the soft breeze in your face, you'll just melt into the relaxing feeling of a summer's day here as never before. And without the stress of traveling. It`s all here, right on your doorstep. If you want even more vacation pleasure, the Schwabengarten barman will mix you an exclusive specialty of the house: Kessler sparkling wine on ice in small white stone jugs, or Kessler Rosé in a stylish glass. This refreshing drink not only looks good, it stays cool in our exclusive Kessler Lounge on hot summer days.
