Schwabing's English Garden counts among the world's largest city parks and is popular for walking, boating, ice-skating, sailing, cycling and even skinny-dipping in the river. Visit the Chinese Tower beer garden and the classical Monopterus pavilion for magnificent city views.
The garden was first established by the American physicist Sir Benjamin Thompson, better known as Count Rumford. He turned this area of Munich into military gardens, which were later landscaped into a park by Sckell in 1808.

The park boasts a lake where both rowing and sailing boats can be hired. There is also a beer garden where you can relax and take a break from the everyday hustle and bustle of Munich.

The Japanese Tea House and Chinese Tower in the park are landmarks in their own right, the Tea House being a gift from Japan's emperor. The Chinese Tower is a restaurant and beer garden which serves mainly German cuisine.
