Brilliant in winter and spring

We have now visited in spring and in winter and both times this is a lovely place for a walk. It is wonderful to have such a large park on the door step of the city.

Great for people watching, strolling, running, and biking around. Big draw are the surfers who surf year round. In the summer time the Garten is full of sunbathers and is really a festive place to be. During soccer season huge screens are set up for public viewing. To really connect with the German people this is a must do. Food... More

Excellent place to chill out and go for a walk. I suggest the chinese pavillion area to eat, excellent food stalls with good prices. Don't forget to see the "river-surfers", it's a funny experience

I was just walking around doing some sight seeing, through the English Garden, when I stumbled upon this. It was about 28 degrees and I see about 8 guys waiting their turn to surf this "wave". Kind of funny and bizarre, but cool to see.

Wow! We took our dog here and it was fantastic. Lots of walking around and tons of people, but there was so much space to roam around that we didn't feel cramped or disturbed. It was a nice stroll!

Headed out to watch the Champions League Final in which Munich played. The game was shown on a big screen in the beer garden, very crowded but lively and festive. Great beer and food.

It is a nice place to take a walk or enjoy the sunshine during the weekend. You can find some yound people surfing in a river near the English Garden. It really amazed me when seeing them surfing in such a smal river. The Chinese Tower was ugly by Chinese standard. But it seemed to be an important spot for... More
