Englischer Garten or the English Gardens in Munich is a large public garden, larger than that of Central Park in New York! Here, you can enjoy a relaxing stroll through the gardens, have a tea at the Japanese Tea House or just chill with your buddies at the Chinese Tower (aka Chinesischer Turm).
What to do at the Englischer Garten Munich
Japanisches Teehaus or the Japanese Tea House is a place in the gardens where regular tea ceremonies take place. Not a very good shot though.
One of the most amazing sights we saw at the English Gardens was this…
Surfers surfing at the Englischer Garten Munich!
These surfers are actually surfing in the river! Turns out that this is an artificial stream with waves produced by pumps. ONLY experienced and skilled surfers are allowed on this river. See how skillful these surfers are!
Kate and I stood there for quite a while and it started to drizzle…so we continued on to enjoy the rest of the gardens, heading in the general direction of the Chinesischer Turm…
The Chinesischer Turm or Chinese Tower is one of the main attractions at the English Gardens. The Tower itself was meant to replicate a Chinese Pagoda and it is also home to the beer garden, which holds 7000 seats – the 2nd largest in the whole of Munich!
Unfortunately, the rain started to pour and Kate and I did not have the opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere here. If you had enjoy a couple of drinks here, share your experience with us in the comments section below!
How to get to Englischer Garten Munich
As the garden is really huge, the Universitat, Giselastrasse & Münchner Freiheit U-bahn stations are close to the gardens. For the Chinese Tower, alight at Giselastrasse for a closer access!
