Water Body
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.

  • One of the most beautiful parks in the world with nearly 1000 acres to explore, the English Garden is breathtaking year round. Quite busy in the summer months (and the nude sunbathing area might come ...  more »
  • Of course, there's a lot more to see and do in the English Garden, after all is one of the biggest Park of Europe. But without doubt the most curious is the surf in rio, with super artificial waves. Too cool!

  • Now in particularly glorious spring. Everywhere grows the wild garlic and other herbs. When the sun shines, you can put on the meadows. On Sunday, intense activity in the ISAR was at 25°. The Nacktbader facilities close tightly and jumped in the water. Grilling - clothed - was also difficult. We ran a few kilometers of RI. Thalkirchen and next and could return with the special bus.
