English Garden, Munich

4.8
#1 of 1,433 in Parks in Germany
English Garden is one of the largest public parks in the world. Covering an area of about 370 hectares (910 acres), it stretches from the city center all the way to the northeastern city limits. Originally created in 1789 by inventor and physicist Sir Benjamin Thompson, the park was massively extended and improved by a series of his successors. The park's name refers to a style of informal landscape gardening popular in Britain in the mid-18th century. Wander the area to see a number of eye-catching temples, teahouses, pavilions, and pagodas. The park's main features are its meadows and ponds, which spread over a gently rolling terrain. Relax under the shade of trees or take advantage of nearly 80 km (50 mi) of biking and hiking trails. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Munich trip simple and quick.

  • Spent a cold gray morning here. Lots of open space. Loved to see the high energy levels of the joggers and walkers given the biting chill. Don’t miss the surfers— amazing commitment given the subzero ...  more »

  • Beautiful park. There's a few places to get food or drinks along the way. Great place to relax, or take a leisurely stroll.
  • Impressive park!!
  • Very nice Park where you can go also run. which is also fairly large. You not so often in the circle must run. In the summer, which is especially beautiful when everything blooms. 🌲🌿 It is also just very much go in the summer as all out want what makes sometimes seem the Park relatively full. But is a very nice Park.

  • Simply amazing place, is a green haven in the middle of a big city. The official area of the Englischer Garten is sometimes greater than the Ibirapuera Park in São Paulo and also outperforms the Central Park of New York. On sunny days, the Park is full of life, of many activities. People play volleyball, football, softball, make barbecue (in the few places where allowed), read books or just resting on the grass. Don't be alarmed if you see someone taking a bath of river without clothes. With your broader part in the city centre, the Park follow northwards, towards the villages of Garching and Freising, along the river Isar. Recommend a bike ride that can last all day in the midst of the green areas, with various locations for a bath of ice water in the Isar River and other streams.

  • 以2R公路分南北兩側,南北長6km,2R北就是一個非常大的森林,沒什麼人工建設,包括廁所。來到這你會因為找不到廁所而回歸自然。 大部分人是來遛狗、騎單車、曬太陽。 2R南,風景比較特別,中國塔是商業中心,Seehaus im Englischen Garten 餐廳的湖邊風景不錯。
