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.

One of the most beautiful parks I’ve visited. Wide open spaces aligned with narrow forest like paths. Great for running!
Amazing park in Munich and easily recommend spending a day exploring. In the summer, the water is warm enough to swim and there are plenty of spots to stop in for a snack or a drink. Easy to rent bikes using the local app and relatively inexpensive as well.
