English Garden München (Munich)
From early morning till late in the night the park is filled
with joggers, horse-back-riders, bikers, baby carriages, dogs
and lovers. Especially on sunny days, the southern part of the
garden is full of life: sunbathers make themselves comfortable
on the meadows alongside the brook, the "Eisbach",
or refresh themselves by taking a short swim.
In the south, surfers train on - and in - the cold water. One
can watch the lively scene of musicians, ice-cream-sellers,
ball- or frisbee players, Brazilian Capoeira dancers and jugglers
on foot, in a horse drawn carriage or on a Rickshaw-tour.
The small round temple "Monopterus" stands out. Further
to the north one can enjoy a "Maß" Bavarian
beer to the sound of a brass band with tourists and inhabitants
beneath the Chinese tower. Those who prefer a more elegant atmosphere,
can visit the beer-garden at the "Seehaus" or feed
the swans, geese and ducks from a rowing boat.
The northern part of the English garden is more peaceful with
better possibilities for those who prefer to simply take a quiet
walk or to relax upon the grass.
