MUNICH TRAVELOGUE – DAY 3 – ON OUR WAY TO ENGLISCHER GARTEN

by Antonio Gil February. 20, 2021 377 views

The "Englischer Garten" (English Garden) is one of the largest urban parks in the world. The layout has undergone constant change for centuries as new buildings and green spaces gets added time and again.

It all started in 1789 when Elector Carl Theodor ordered that a public park be established along the Isar River.

The park was given the name Englischer Garten because the layout is in the style of an English country park.

Today, the Englischer Garten offers numerous leisure time activities. Cyclists and joggers train on the 78-kilometer-long (48.5 miles) network of paths, and amateur soccer players meet on the fields for recreational games.

#1 reminds me of something from the future in a movie. This is a great set :)

Thank you Russel. I agree with you on #1. It looks like a Sci-fi movie from the 70's

What  a wonderful place to recreate! If I lived close by there, I'd be there every day! I wonder what a weekend day looks like  during these pandemic times??? I can't imagine social-distancing there, especially in the beer garden! Love your photos & fantastic YouTube video!

And the English country park was based on the ideal Italianate landscape paintings as imagined by French artists Poussin and Lorrain. To complete the circle we now need some Italians to build a park based on the German Ideal of a British French Italian landscape.smile
