    English garden and beer garden
    Large park with extensive grounds well worth a visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of Munich. Easy to get to from Munich centre. It is walkable if your fit but we took tram 16 to Tivolistrasse to get to a midway point for a good walk around Kleinhesseloher See and back to the beer garden for lunch. It was busy at the beer garden but easy enough to get served. You enter a central area through a turnstile and pick whatever food you like ( there is a lot of choice) and pick up your beer from the bar hatch. You proceed to pay at a kiosk for food a drinks. Glasses have a 1 euro deposit which is reclaimed at a separate hatch once you’ve finished. There is a great atmosphere here and worth the stop.

    Germany's most beautiful park
    The English Garden is in the heart of Munich. I was there during summer for the fifth time and it is a perfect place where you can spend the hot summer in a big city. You can borrow a bike and discover the huge park by bike. Many tourists visit the English garden because of the artificial wave, where surfers can have an amazing experience! I stood close to the wave for a few minutes, and it makes so much fun only watching how the young people surf. But the real reason for our visit was the swimming in the “Eisbach”. Summer in Munich can get very hot, so it is helpful if you can jump in cold water. But attention: the water is really cold! Most of the people jump in the stream and drift along until they reach the Tivoli-Bridge. There you can take the tram and drive back to your place and swim again. If you underestimate the drift, it can be very dangerous. I was surprised how big the park is but this is nowadays actually very good because you can keep enough distance from each other when you go for a walk with a friend during the Covid19-Pandemic. I would be glad if we can travel as soon as possible, so I can visit the park this summer. It is the best place for enjoying the summer, eating ice cream and meeting friends in the evening! A must-see in Munich.
