English Garden, Munich

4.7
#1 of 726 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.

    Right in the heart of Munich is larger than NY's Central Park. You could find nudist visitors here. Good visit.  more »

    So much fun in this beautiful park. Sunny days brought good food, music, beer and adventure going down the canal in the river and watching the river surfers.  more »

    Immense gardens, perfect meadows and water channels where you can enjoy and relax strolling or sunbathing (if you leave). It is very large and we toured only part time. We hear a band, but we never got to find it. To take it calmly. Very busy.
