Not amazing for our daughter since the garden was huge and we couldn't find a playground. Otherwise it was ok.

We enjoyed relaxing on the grass in the large park area and also relaxing on one of the many park benches as we walked around the park and lake. We rented a paddle boat on the lake which was fun. We enjoyed a good dinner at the Biergarten by the lake. Beautiful sunset and scenery. Nice place to take a... More

This is one of my favorite parks in Europe. When ever I am in Munich I visit the park, it is good for walking or jogging and just looking around and enjoying your day off. Special thing to see are the surfers in the narrow river canal.

Frankly I was somehow disappointed after my visit. Except being extremely large and the river and surfing people, there is nothing extremely attractive about "English garden" or may be the attractions escaped my eyes. The Chinese tower was a disappointment, nothing fancy about the beer garden, there are other beer gardens in Munich with much more charm, but once you're... More

Utterly crowded. 4,000 seats in the beer garden and none available. This would be better on a weekday. The garden itself looked perfectly ok.

We cycled through here with Lenny's Bike Tours and enjoyed watching people surfing on the river, very talented people, be prepared some of the people sunbathe nude, mainly seems to be leathery old men though. Stopped and had a large beer and pretzels in the beer garden, whilst listening to an umpah band, great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.... More

Well worth a visit to see the surfers. We visited on a lovely, sunny Sunday and there were loads of surfers and swimmers. Had lunch at the Chinese Tower beer garden which was full of locals in national dress, old guys playing cards (and falling out!) and families having fun.

The beauty and tranquillity is beyond words. Bicycle paths go on forever and is a must on any visit to the city.

Visited the Chinese Tower Biergarten on a Saturday afternoon. Loads of locals and tourists enjoying the food and beer on a sunny day and a band played intermittently from the upper floor of the tower. Nice atmosphere. Didn’t try the food but it wasn’t as expensive as I had been led to believe and the beer was no dearer than... More
