Create an itinerary including English Garden
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.

  • We did only a small part of the garden. But it is nice, there really is a lot of space. We were there on a public holiday and it was sunny; there was a lot of people, but we did not have the feeling.....  more

  • English garden is really a nice place in Munich. People enjoy the beautiful summer in Munich in this park. You can play, swim and can have picnic in this garden. There is also a beer garden inside this. Really a nice place to walk, enjoy, sit and have a picnic in Munich. Recommended place to visit.
  • These gardens are some of the best relaxing places in Munich you will find...there are a number of eating and beer gardens in these gardens...the beers are good and the food is not fine dining but good snack foods... There are no flowers etc to view but lovely forest trees and wonderful grass areas for picnics etc... A stream runs through the park for hot summer days...
  • Beautiful scenery walking through the English Garden Park. It's a joy to see families having fun and spending quality time outdoors together. The individuals who have the "Adventure Spirit" took advantage of the warm Saturday to "ride the current" in the river that runs through the park.
  • Great park where you can do a bunch of activities like playing volleyball, having a pick nick, swim in the river that cuts across it, even surf on it! Can be too crowded at times but worth visiting or spending a day chilling
  • Really Beautiful park and Place for relax. Peaceful spot in the big City. Green lungs of Munich. We hired bikes and road them around as it is quite long. The river runs through part of it and you can get in the river too (although only waist height as the current is strong). There is a bar too which is handy. Would highly recommend. I love to chill there.
