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.

  • Beautiful scenery walking through the English Garden Park. It's a joy to see families having fun and spending quality time outdoors together. The individuals who have the "Adventure Spirit" took advantage of the warm Saturday to "ride the current" in the river that runs through the park.
  • 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
