English Garden, Munich

#1 of 1,725 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.

  • We were out with friends in the English Garden. Then at some point in the beer godfather at the Chinese Tower. I think it's great there and the food isn't bad either. I only ate a pretzel, but the friends were thrilled. Beer, food, atmosphere great. The toilets nearby are kept clean. If that is, someone on the ground cares.

  • It's huge and full of interesting people. Some nude sunbathers 70+ yr old men if there were any different demographic without clothing I missed them. Nice place to spend the day if you have a long layover.
