  • The Westpark is the remnant of the international garden exhibition in Munich in 1983. The system is designed with Lake, hills and interesting buildings such as the pagoda of Nepal very well maintained and varied. The West Park in sea of blooming daffodils is in spring, in summer, open air cinema will take place often. But every season, it is worth a visit. Many Munich romp in West Park. It is ideal for walking, jogging or cycling.

  • This park is a beautiful place to let your mind wander. There's great playgrounds for children, meadows for playing football, cosy corners where one can read undisturbed, beer gardens, a rose garden and much more. No matter whether there is sport, dangle makes the soul or a beer drinking goes with his friends – here everyone is happy!

  • In 1983 took place in the South West of Munich the IGA, an international garden exhibition of landscape architects, gardeners and garden artists showed their art from all over the world and I went with my school class at the time. I believe there were no country on the European continent that not in a corner of the grounds was represented and presented an ensemble of shrubs and flowerbeds, a small gazebo or gazebo; also, Thailand, China, Japan, and Nepal took part. A small narrow-gauge railway took visitors around the grounds, and everywhere there were beverage and ice cream stands, because the summer of 1983 was scorching hot. Today, only a relatively small fraction's left of the once-immense area which Highway into two halves is cut from the cooking mixer; new, quiet and elegant residential area have been created on the remaining area. If you rise up at the subway station to the surface, is the look first on the two open wing of a stylized dark green door. Through the silent small regrets road and enters the outer area of the Park, an ensemble of high great boulders draws the eyes, resembling Stonehenge or the stone circles in Ireland and Scotland. Continuously trickles water on the stone blocks down and donates walkers on a hot day a welcome cooling. The current West Park is essentially a fringed by forest hills, dappled with planted Islands lawn with a lake in the Middle, which is used in the open air Film Festival "Cinema, Moon and Star" as the intimate, atmospheric setting and to take a stroll, but not for swimming and boating. A spacious restaurant with terrace offers coffee and snack. The many small trees, grass - and flower Islands remember the Botanical Garden of Nymphenburg Palace, as well as the rose garden, which stretches over three levels and the Edelrosen exude a heady scent in June and July in their colorful, lush beauty; but differently than in the Botanical Garden, one must also pay no admission in the West Park for the walk. Also not for the enchanted dream airy-fairy Chinese pagoda garden, in which time stands still when you sit in the covered pagoda open on all sides - one waits somehow on that here every moment the soul of a Chinese emperor in floated; the meditative Japanese garden, a composition of water, stone, trees and light, which was created to provide a worthy part of the tea ceremony - here waiting for Geisha going in their flowing silk robes like flowers on two legs over the bridge, which spans the pond; She built dark wood over and over Nepal pagoda decorated with fretwork, in fact high Buddhist festivals prayers and sacrificial ceremonies take place, which aligns the Thai community in Munich; and the shimmering in all colors of the Rainbow Thai pagoda, which at the time was created by a master from a single tree trunk, which stands together with the Buddha statue in the middle of a circular pond, leads to the jetty or bridge.
