Schwabengarten – a beer garden just outside of Stuttgart

Schwabengarten in Leinfelden-Echterdingen is a typical German beer garden near to Stuttgart.

Hi guys! Even though I am Vegetarian, I like beer gardens. One of my favorite ones is Schwabengarten just outside of Stuttgart, in Leinfelden. It’s easy to reach because it’s located just behind the U-Bahn and the S-Bahn Station “Leinfelden”.

You get all the traditional beer garden style dishes at Schwabengarten, like pork knuckle, sausages, potato salad and of course beer, but they also serve Flammkuchen (tarte flambée), Dampfnudel (steam dumpling), Weißwürste (white sausages) and dumplings with a creamy mushroom sauce, which you would not find in every beer garden. Nice for Vegetarians though!! 

Well, I have to admit, I totally felt like fries today, so that’s what I got. Boring, I know 🙂

The unicorn in the background is not mine by the way! The Apfelschorle (apple spritz) though was mine indeed! As I don’t like beer (yep, how dare I call myself a German, right?!), I always order Apfelschorle with my meal when I visit a beer garden.

My nephews (proud holders of the unicorn by the way!) on the other hand ordered Rote Wurst and Kartoffelsalat (red sausage and potato salad) and thus made up for my boring decision on the food front.

Typical food in a beer garden: red sausage in a bread and potato salad.

What I like about Schwabengarten is, that they have more to offer than just the usual benches and tables: There is a playground for the kids and sun chairs for the grown ups…

It is a great destination after a bike trip, too. And if you are the proud holder of an e-bike, you can even recharge your bike while visiting the beer garden. They have their own e-bike station now! Awesome, right?!

During the season, Schwabengarten is open every day from 11 am until 11 pm. They also organize several special events every year, for example a “US-Car Meeting” on the 25th and 26th of July.
