It is a true park of the people and ideal for sports, walking, playing music or simply relaxing in one of four beer gardens. The highest point in the park is a hill, on which a circular Greek structure, Monopteros, was built in 1836. From atop this hill, you will enjoy a remarkable view of the city’s high structures.

25 metres in height, the Chinesischer Turm (Chinese Tower) was erected in 1789/1790. With seating for 7,000 people, the beer garden beneath the tower is the second-largest and arguably best-known beer garden in Munich. During Advent, there a small Christmas Market here.
