English Garden

For over 225 years the Englische Garten has been providing the people of Munich with an oasis of tranquillity.

English Garden

Cycling, jogging, roller-blading or walking – the park has over 78 kilometres of paths that make the Englische Garten ideal for sporting activities of all kinds. Covering a total of 3.7 km2 the Englische Garten is larger even than Central Park in New York.

There are plenty of beer gardens offering delicious snacks to spend a pleasurable hour or two. Some of the most popular spots are the beer gardens under the Chinesische Turm and by the Seehaus. The very best views of Munich can be enjoyed from Monopteros that is not only a popular meeting place but also a symbol of Munich’s cosmopolitan flair. Don’t miss out on a visit to the Japanische Teehaus.

Even in winter the Englische Garten has plenty to offer. How about a little sledging or donning your skates and enjoying a little ice skating on Kleinhesseloher lake.

One thing you must do is watch the surfers on the Eisbach. Attracting spectators from all over the world, the surfers are there all year round surfing the man-made wave.


By the way, our Kempinski The Spa is just perfect after a busy day of sporting activities.
