“Our favorite part of Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This garden is a must see! It is beautiful and green and quiet with a lovely river running through the middle of it that people are swimming in or dangling their feet to cool off. Be aware that a section of the part near the river is for nudists. There is a great greek looking ruin on a hill where you can walk for a nice view of the city. There is also a beer garden that is not to be missed. Our favorite part though was probably the surfers - local Germans surf the waves near a bridge (its listed on the map) and its really cool to watch them.

“Great park in the middle of Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lots to do in the park: see the surfers on the south end, check out the beer gardens, check out the nudists (although not very attractive when we were there), ride a bike through, rent a boat.

We loved the beer garden on the north end of the park, it is right on a small lake and had a great atmosphere.

“Nude beaches, good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

So, apparently, when it's hot, Germans will just take off their clothes in the park. Kind of wierd, but hey, who am I? They have a place to surf, a beach, a Chinese Tower, and bier garten. What's not to like?

“Great stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

You can't go to Munich and not stroll at the English Garden. So much to see and it's perfect walk distance to justify a beer or 2 and some sausages after! This was my second time coming here and it is worth you while. :)
