Munich's answer to New York's Central Park is ideal for a sunny day. On a local friend’s advice, we took the bus to the bridge over the Isar at the English Garden. Here the Isar has been narrowed into a channel, forming a standing wave. Surfers on short boards zigged and zagged back and forth across it, skillfully avoiding crashing... More

Don't miss this iconic Park. There is something for everyone, from sunbathing, to biking, walking, even surfing! Don;t miss the picnic near the Chinese Temple, its a Beergarden but you are allowed to bring your own food, or just order food right there. Beautiful garden very large you can jog or walk here for hours.

It was nothing special and it is a long walk to get to it. It's main attraction is the river surfers which you can see without actually getting in to the garden.

The backyard of all Bavarians. A great place to go and do anything you would do in your own backyard. From swimming to biking to playing ball games to listening to music. It is a must do in Munich! You can even go surfing 😃

It seems funny coming all this way from London to view a park called English Garden. It is in fact a very large park extending for miles on the edge of the city whose main feature is the vast waterways of fast flowing water that thread their way through the park forming ponds and lakes as they go. The southern... More

A pleasant walk and a fun thing to do. The river surfing is fun to watch, and the occasional nudist is worth seeing and not too weird. We would not have made a point of taking the kids there but our tour guide took us and I was glad he did.

Hire a bike and take a ride to the beer garden. It's fun watching the surfers and we wished we had joined the river current floaters! Great place to relax and experience local life also. Would reccomend the Osterweld beer garden for food!

Just great to have such a nice park in the middle of the city. Well worth a walk and a good break from the busy centre. Interesting to see surfing in the fast flowing water in a city.
