The “Englischer Garten” is the largest citypark in the world with many places, which are almost magical: inviting touring paths, lawns, a temple-like rotunda called Monopteros, with a wonderful panorama view over the city; the Japanese Teahouse, situated on the southern end of the park on an artificial island in the middle of the Schwabinger Bach (stream); the Chinese Tower, a distinctive pagoda, built in imperial-chinese style; a beer garden with 7,000 spots, right by the Chinese tower; and above all, the famous Eisbach river-surfers.
