The 5 most beautiful parks and gardens in Munich

Your oasis in the capital of Bavaria

Fancy a break in the green? In the heart of Munich you will find beautiful parks and green spaces that invite you to linger. In addition to relaxing on the grass, you can also enjoy cultural and sporting activities. Here are our top 5 parks and gardens in Munich.



1. Nymphenburg Park – simply fabulous

Do you love castles like Neuschwanstein? Then you should take a trip to Nymphenburg Park. The 18th century baroque garden is the largest in Germany. Lakes, ponds, fountains, bridges and beautiful castles will make you want to stroll around. With the app "Schlosspark Nymphenburg" you can explore the park with historical facts.


2. The Old Botanical Garden – tropical flair

North of Nymphenburg Park, the Old Botanical Garden welcomes you with tropical flair and lush flowers. Located between the Central Station and Stachus, it is a welcome oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. On hot days, cool your feet in the Neptune Fountain or relax on the lawn. When it gets cooler, the warm greenhouses with butterflies and exotic plants are your sanctuary. In a wooded area next to the Neptune Fountain, you can view contemporary art projects in the Art Pavilion.


3. English Garden – Munich lifestyle

When you visit Munich, you can't miss the English Garden. With 375 hectares, it is the largest green space in Munich, even bigger than Central Park in New York! Munich's lifestyle is best experienced in the many beer gardens and events that take place during the summer months. The Chinese Tower and the Monopteros Temple are popular meeting places. Especially cool: the Eisbach wave, where you can surf! And how about a horseback ride on the 12 km long bridle paths?


4. The Olympic Park – sports & culture

Munich's landmark and center of attraction for sports enthusiasts and festival goers: the Olympic Park. On 85 hectares, joggers, tennis players, rowers and skaters can enjoy themselves. The Tollwood Festival, concerts, open-air movies and fireworks also attract culture lovers to the Olympic Park. In the hilly terrain, you can hike up the Olympiaberg or climb the Olympic Tower – restaurant included.


5. The Hirschgarten – oh my deer

Between Nymphenburg and Laim you can feed and pet real deers! In addition to the deer enclosure, Munich's largest beer garden - possibly the largest in the world - invites you to visit. Sunbathing lawns, barbecue areas, playgrounds and a small skate park make for a great day out in Munich.
