One of Europe's largest urban parks is full of charming corners - and one particularly kicky surprise

Englischer Garten Park

Greenery, beer & surfing

Even in a continent full of wonderful parks, the "English Garden" is a real standout. A huge and locally beloved expanse just north of the historic centre, it started out in 1789 as a "military garden" but was soon expanded to become a public park. It's full of charming little corners, such as the Japanese tea house; the Chinese Tower (with a nearby beer garden); the Monopteros (a classical-Greek-style pavillion); an open-air amphitheatre; a nude sunbathing section; and even a section of one of the park's artificial streams with current so strong it's regularly used for surfing!
