The English Garden is one of the world's largest parks. It's the largest park in Germany and a wonderful hangout for people trying to get a break from the city stress. You can go running, biking, or just for a walk and won't ever regret.

There are numerous lakes, rivers, forests and meadows in the park as well as several beer gardens where you can enjoy some nice Bavarian style food.

Among some of the things to see there is the central lake, the Monopterus, and the Chinese Porch.

Only go there when it's nice outside, no point to visit during rainy days.
