English Garden, Munich

4.7
#1 of 1,617 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.

  • With friends, a couple with children, parents, with a dog, here you can have a good time in any company. Many trails for walking, are good places for photos. In the Centre of the park there is a large Chinese Tower, around which the beer Street bars.

  • This Park is very large and very spacious. We were 18 ´ in the summer here, as well as in March. In the summer, there was a boat rental service. The Great Meadows used to lie down and play. Again many trees in places like a little forest. Beer may not be missing too. Lots of nice people, all very relaxed.

  • I stopped by when the city had been experiencing some chilly weather, thinking the park would look beautiful in the snow, but I was wrong. It was rather barren instead, even a bit sad, I have to admit...  more »
