Squares, Parks and Playgrounds
Being one of the largest inner-city parks in the world, the English Garden is hard to beat in terms of versatility. Based on the diversity of its visitors it already is quite apparent that there is a recreational activity available for everyone to take a well-deserved break from the hectic city life. From a simple walk through its extensive grounds, a relaxing stop in one of the various, distributed beer gardens, sunbathing and then refreshing in the Eisbach (which has earned its name, meaning as much as “Ice Creek”), up to even surfing on the Eisbach wave are by far not all possible activities.
The lively southern part of the English Garden has become a vibrant hub for urban leisure life due to its proximity to Munich’s universities and the city center. No matter what the weather or what time of year it is, there’s always something going on here. Alternatively, the somewhat more remote northern part offers a haven of peace and a trip into nature.
Ultimately, regardless of which part of the English Garden you choose, you can discover a lot of almost magical places, even apart from sights such as the Monopteros. And as soon as your urge for exploration is satisfied, you can end your evening following Bavarian tradition in one of the beautiful beer gardens and quench your thirst with cool Bavarian beer. For example, the beer garden at the Chinese Tower might be a good pick, which is centrally located in the southern part and supports its good mood often times with brass music from live bands.
