English Garden, Munich

(4.7/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I loved this park! I walked around during winter and it was white and so many things to see! It's a good place to relax  more »
  • Park in any city is great! It is primarily the lungs of the city. A place where you can take a walk, enjoy the geese in a pond, jog and cycle paths, play with the children. In my opinion, it would be possible to equip the Park more toilets. Even paid! And yet. Everywhere in the Park installed booths with a plan (scheme) of the Park. Only not listed on them point "you are here". Nonsense, of course. But for the tired tourist, whose head spin, lack of toilets and not exactly intuitive orientation in space Park, is a significant disadvantage.

  • An amazing massive park in the city. Here you will find spaces for all activities. There is a fantastic beer garden with food and drinks in the center, many trails, open areas for just relaxing and having a picnic. People will be out riding bikes, running, walking, floating and playing in the river, hanging out naked (yep, there is a nudist area) and over all just enjoying being outside. Also at the southern end of the park there is a surfing wave in the river where the locals practice their surfing.
  • The largest park in Munich, a fascinating and beautiful green oasis with lakes and various interesting places. In one part of the park there is a Chinese turm near that you can eat traditional Bavarian food and drink a beer at a good price. Also, in other part of the park you can see surfers on the river waves. You can rent a bike and tour the entire park. Beautiful.
  • Lovely for a walk. I cannot think of anywhere else within walking distance of a city where folk can swim in rapids and surf. Wonderful on a summer's day.
  • Loved this super large park. Was full of college students having pick-nicks on grass, drinking wine and socializing. Great atmosphere reminded me why Europe towers over the US culture wise. At night there are multi colored bike taxis running around giving the park a surreal feel.
  • Picturesque walkways with lakes, brooks and fields. Everything from swans walking around to secluded sunbathers and Bavarian beer. I spent a memorable afternoon with a group of elderly locals who were playing classic rock at a restaurant-side.
