The Hirschgarten is the largest beer garden in Munich (and therefore, quite possibly, the largest in the world) with a capacity of 8000 guests over 2 hectares. Originally setup in 1780 as a hunting park for nobility, it is today one of the most popular parks in Munich.
The park itself is much bigger than just the beer garden. At over 40 hectares, it has plenty of space for sports or relaxing and escaping the city.
The translation of Hirschgarten in English is "Deer Garden", and it has been named after the deer that are kept in the park. They can still be seen here, and even fed at the petting zoo in the park.
The beer served in the beer garden is either Augustiner or Tegernseer. Like was traditionally done, you are required to get your own liter beer stein from the rack, wash it yourself in the fountain and then take it to the beer keg to be filled. Typical Bavarian food like a half chicken or Schweinshaxen can also be bought here.
The closest U-Bahn to the park is Laim, which is about 5 minutes walk away from the park.
