English Garden, Munich

#1 of 1,717 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.

  • English Garden is very nice by its self but you easily get lost in it because there is not enough signs or direction! You go for a walk and you don't really like to check navigation every 3 minutes!
  • What a wonderful spot! This garden is extremely big, I have a feeling that I didn’t walk even through a quarter of it, however i also feel like I gained a complete sense of how locals spend their free time. I had an opportunity to observe people and a beautiful nature.
