Oktoberfest 2009: Guide to Munich Englischer Garten

Englischer Garten

The "English Garden" is Munich's green space. It stretches for five kilometres through the city. As mentioned above, the Eisbach flows through the English Garden. And there are several beer gardens, such as the Chinesischer Turm and the Seehaus, enticing you to stay a while. Tip: we recommend you visit the Chinesischer Turm. There's live brass band music, Bavarian beer, crispy spare ribs and fresh chicken. Special tip for sporty types: the best thing is to hire a bicycle to explore the English Garden.

Bicycles can be hired from:
