Englischer Garten Tips (99)

Munich's Central Park

we didn't have much time to wander around the gardens. We stopped by to have a beer at the Chinese Tower Beer Garden. Walking to the beer garden was very nice. There are lots of bike paths and a pretty big stream running along one side of the park.

The Chinese Tower is pretty interesting. The beer garden was not too crowded since we were there during winter, it was also close to closing time. The beer garden has tons of seating and is definitely a nice place to relax and have a beer!

A Beer Garden with an Incredible Setting

As you probably already know, beer gardens are a big part of Munich culture. On our Beer Tour we learned that there are two major rules for being a true beer garden. There have to be chestnut trees and people must be allowed to bring their own food (although not necessarily drinks). This means you can create your own picnic (we would suggest the market in town) and bring it to any beer garden to have with your liter of beer.

We especially enjoyed the Englischer garden. There was a band in the Chinese tower playing music for the enjoyement of all the customers. The temperature below the chestnut trees was perfect and the place was neat and clean. Plus, walking through the park to get there is a treat in and of itself.

Englisher Garten

The park is build by a loyalist who migrated from America after she gained independence.This is a huge park with River Issar running through it.The park has a Greek Temple mounument,Japanese Tea House and a Chinese pagoda.
The Chinese pagoda was built in 1791.However, this 5 storey wooden pagoda looks more Japanese than Chinese to me.This is a favourite meeting spot for locals as well as visitors.There is a big crowd at the large beer garden enjoying fresh 'Mass" of beer(1 Litre) while listening to a Bavarian Band,which i understand plays only on weekend.
One large secttion of the beer garden is self service .There is also another corner where you get full service from waiters but paying a higher price.At one corner ,the horse coaches stood waiting for customers wanting joy rides round the park.

Englisch Garden

The Englisch Garden is a huge green area. I think it is 10-15 km long and 1 km wide. You easily get lost, because of all the small roads, paths and rivers. It is good for walking, cycling, horse riding etc. And on the fields people play football or go sunbathing (yes, even here there are areas with nude Germans... ).

On of the most popular parts of the English Garden are the biergardens at the Chinese Tower, where a band often play typical Bavarian music.

Englischer Garten

There are many English styled parks in Germany, like the Tiergarten in Berlin, but this one is one of the best and biggest by far. It's also possibly the most English. Stepping out of the trees and into the wide open spaces of green feels like stepping out into Hyde Park in London, or any number of big parks in Britain. Like many German parks it is absolutely huge, and can be clearly made out from space on satellite photographs, snaking its way out of the city along the Isar river before merging with the countryside outside.

It has to be said the park looks absolutely fantastic in Autumn. I just couldn't stop myself going from park to park in Munich to take in the incredible colours.

Englisher Garten

The Englischer Garten is huge! It's over 900 acres and is the largest metropolitan park in Europe. That's twice the size of New York's Central Park. There's many trails to explore and you get the feeling that you're not in Munich anymore. It's so quiet and peaceful. There's lots of places to just sit and soak in the beauty of the place if that's what you're looking for. If not, it also has a livelier side. The garden is home to four beergardens: the Chinesischer Turm (which is where we stopped for a drink), Seehaus, Hirschau & Aumeister.

Englischer Garten

The Englischer Garten or "English Garden" is a large urban public park in northeast Munich, Germany and it was founded in 1789

The name refers to the style of gardening; the term "English garden" is used outside of the English speaking world to refer to the style of informal landscape gardening which was popular in the United Kingdom in the mid 18th century

Biking and Beer Drinking in the English Garten

I spent days biking, lounging, people watching and beer drinking in this fabulous place. I don't think I actually even saw the whole park. There are 3 beer gardens in this park, with the Chinese Towers being the largest. A must do!!

Visit the Chinese Tower

This was the only landmark of the Englischer Garten that we saw. We got a little lost finding it (no laughing!) because we entered to the south of where we thought we were. Well, we weren't really lost, it's just that this map was to scale, and everything else had been much closer than we expected. Anyway, finding it was lovely. We briefly admired the tower, then we browsed the choices for food and drink.

This was one of my favorite parts of Munich, I think. Very relaxed, and it reminded me of the attitude and atmosphere of Berlin. The areas just off the Garten are a bit too self conscious for my liking. I can get that right at home!

Green, beer and gathering

The Englischer Garten is one of the biggest parks of the world within a city. It is several nice spots to sit and enjoy a beer. All Muncheners enjoy the park on a lovely day to jog, sunbath, swim , drink a beer or what ever.

On the picture you see the Monopteros a neo-classic tempel built by Leo von Klenze in 1837.

Another specific buidling is the Chinese Tower, where also a Beergarden is situated. On the first floor of the tower real Bavarian Music is played throughout the day.

Garden and Chinesischer Turm

The Chinese Tower is located in the Englischer Garten - it was built in 1789 by Elector Karl Theodor to placate his citizens from revolutionary thoughts.

It is very pleasant place to sit in both the spring and summer.

Enjoy the traditional music and food.....oh and of course beer!!
