In Munich, the “Englisher Garten” was designed a century before the other great urban gardens of Europe. In 1789 – while the French Revolution makes European courts tremble - Prince Charles-Theodore of Bavaria decided to offer his people a magnificent public garden.

From the park’s opening, the prince had set up a casino, boats on the artificial lake and other fun activities that are emblematic of this garden’s spirit. Nobody was living on this land north of Munich yet; there was no urbanization. It was a natural space that belonged to the state. The park is divided into two parts by a road – the Isarring. It is mainly comprised of spacious lawns, meadows and groves.
Nowadays, the locals enjoy this vast 375 hectares “green lung” at the heart of the city on a daily basis; it has become a true leisure and strolling area enjoyed by everyone.
