    The Englischer Garten (English Garden) is one of the best things about Munich. It's the largest park in Munich and has rivers and a prominent beer garden at the Chinese Temple. In the summer, it's a popular place to sunbath, swim, and surf (!) in the river (even if the water is extremely cold!)

    I only had a shirt time in Munich...so it was either go to Dachau and get enraged...or go to the English Gardens on a beautiful day, lay out, people watch, and drink awesome beer out of giant steins...I choose the later...I choose wisely...

    Beautiful Park in Munich! Lots of interesting people watching, rent a bike and enjoy the numerous paths, then grab a drink in the beer garden. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

    On our last day in Munich it was actually quite hot and we wandered around this park for an hour or so to cool off. There are numerous interesting statues and fountains and there was a human statue of Beethoven, which is what we remember it by.

    Definitely worth a visit while in Munich. Easy to get to, decent food at the Zum Aumeister, and a fun atmosphere.

    This is my favorite spot in Munich. On any given day, you can hear classical cellists playing under a gazebo, see a couple giving an impromptu waltz performance, and watch Germans and tourists alike taking a nap on the grass. After walking around the city, this is a great place to take a break and grab a pint of beer in one of their beer gardens.

    nice place to relax, stroll around or enjoy a beer in the beer garden there. There is also a japanese tea house and a chinese pagoda to find. So something for everyone.

    Great for getting a quick flavour of quirky Munich - check out the river surfers and nude sunbathers (the latter not too closely).

    City officials had the foresight in the 1790s to set aside more than 900 acres of prime real estate for the Englischer Garten, one of Europe’s largest. You can rent a bike to explore trails that wind past green lawns and bridges toward a central lake with paddleboats. Warm weather brings sunbathers (some known to strip down to nothing), surfers, and plenty of thirsty locals and tourists alike, who head for the Chinese Tower, where the beer garden has room for 7,000.

    This is where Munich's inhabitants meet in there leisure time, especially in summer. It's a nice park with some beer gardens and the famous Eisbach-surfers.

    A wonderful large park not too far from the center of the city. A nice place to take a walk and watch the natives enjoy the environment. Easy to get to using the bus.

    The Englisher Garten is huge. It's not exactly a garden. It's more like a park. You'll see all manner of people here. Young, old, active, inactive, clothed, and unclothed. That's right. There always seems to be the nudists somewhere in the park that are sunbathing. Definitely check out the various beer gardens in the park during the summer. Do what the locals do and join in.

    Simply beautiful and extremely large, this awesome green space is full of walking trails, water and best of all, beer gardens. If you're in Munich, you've got to spend a few hours enjoying this magnificent place.

    Lovely to stroll around. When the weather's nice you'll encounter some amazing musicians performing. Look for the surfers -- crazy!

    This is the "central park" of Munchen. It's a beautiful park with a great outdoor beer garden where you can order a liter stein of a fresh brewed beer. I would recommend the "helles" which is a blond color beer, or the famous "weisse bier". If you want something a bit lighter on alcohol, try a "radler" mix. The "dunkel" or dark beer is very good too.

    Wonderful place to get back to nature during a vacation. The size of the park, located in such a large city, is awe-inspiring. Like NYC's Central Park, but with less crime and urban decay.

    You could spend a full day here. Walking around the park finding places to eat with restaurants and kiosks with street cart food, such as pretzels and ice cream. There are soccer games going on that you can join, and people tossing Frisbee around or just hanging out. It was a blast and a beautiful place to hang out. I would go back if I am ever in Munich again.

Description

If nude sunbathers make you nervous, you may want to put on your blinders at the Englischer Garten, as the liberating practice has been permitted here since the 1960s. The “English Garden,” located in the heart of Munich, is nevertheless popular with all sorts of visitors. As one of the world’s largest urban public parks, it features a Chinese pagoda, a Monopteros Greek temple, a river and a ... read more
