English Garden

Munich's Prettiest Park
English Garden, located on the Isar River in Munich, opened in 1789. This large public area was named "Englischer Garten" because it was designed and landscaped in the style of a classic English park.

It is one of the world's largest urban parks, bigger even than New York City's famous Central Park.

The garden, while beautiful year-round, reaches its full splendor on a summer weekend. In addition to nearly 50 miles of running and biking paths through the lush green meadows, there are soccer fields, a bustling beer garden, an elegant Japanese teahouse, a sheep pasture, a small amphitheater, a children's carousel, a man-made lake, a Greek temple, a surfing wave, and an area for nude sunbathing. Whew!

Take a break from the crowds in Munich and get lost in English Park—you will be enchanted!
