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 best spots to visit especially if the weather is sunny. Rent a bike to take tour and spend as much time as you can !

  • Great park where you can do a bunch of activities like playing volleyball, having a pick nick, swim in the river that cuts across it, even surf on it! Can be too crowded at times but worth visiting or spending a day chilling
  • Really Beautiful park and Place for relax. Peaceful spot in the big City. Green lungs of Munich. We hired bikes and road them around as it is quite long. The river runs through part of it and you can get in the river too (although only waist height as the current is strong). There is a bar too which is handy. Would highly recommend. I love to chill there.
