Having your own garden is rather rare in Munich. But that's not a problem, because the city has some beautiful green spaces to offer, where you can make yourself comfortable alone, with your partner, best friend or family.
The English Garden, the Poet's Garden, the Court Garden and the Old Botanical Garden is a household name for every local and tourist, but what is behind the gardens, the statues and what makes the gardens especially interesting in winter?
The 7 kilometer long and wintry tour through the gardens has a lot to offer. In just under two hours of pure walking time you will certainly learn some new information about Munich.
