Final Stop: The English Gardens
The English Gardens are one of the must see stops in Munich. At more than 910 acres and stretching from the city center to the city limits, it is one of the largest public spaces in Europe. On a sunny summer day, this is the place to be. The southern half of the park is popular with sunbathers and pick-up soccer games. The northern half of the park is more peaceful and is even used as pasture for sheep.
The park has numerous attractions to include a Japanese tea house, surfing, and many monuments and historic structures. Keep a sharp lookout during your exploration, certain parts of the gardens are open to nude sunbathing so don’t say we didn’t warn you if this offends! The gardens are also home to a few beer gardens. The second largest in Germany is located in the garden at the Chinese Tower. Stop here for a refreshment or two as you wander about the garden.
So that is it, One day in Munich! If you bought your train tickets correctly for an evening return trip around 7 or 8 PM you can head back to the Haupbahnhof and catch your ride home. After a long but fulfilling day you will enjoy the ride and probably spend it sharing your new photos and memories with friends on Facebook.
