Gourmet walk through the English Garden
Anyone can go for a walk, but have you ever considered the English Garden from a culinary point of view? The largest park in Munich has a lot to offer in this respect too! We would like to introduce you to five culinary highlights on a gourmet tour through the English Garden - it makes a walk in Munich so much more fun.
We start our tour at the Eisbachwelle, the southernmost point of the English Garden. Fräulein Grüneis has been just around the corner since 2011. The disused toilet block is a popular meeting place in the park. All year round, you can enjoy homemade cakes and brownies as well as hot and cold drinks here. Walkers with a bigger appetite can also get their fill at Fräulein Grüneis. On weekdays, you can choose between three different dishes with regional and organic ingredients for lunch: a soup, something vegetarian and a meat dish. During the lockdown, Fräulein Grüneis also offers a break box at weekendsin collaboration with Heinrich Matters. The cozy café provides you with delicious mulled wine in winter before heading north to the English Garden.
Over the Monopteros to the Milchhäusl
If you turn left before the Monopteros and walk towards the two slender towers of St. Ludwig Church, you will come to the next stop, the Milchhäusl. The kiosk is famous for its 100% controlled organic food and is even a certified Biokreis restaurant. Only regional, organic and fair food is served here. In the cold season, you can look forward to various mulled wines, punches and hearty delicacies to keep you warm for a longer walk.
French fries and bratwurst at the Chinese Tower
Keep to the right on the way towards the lake if you want to pass the Chinese Tower - it's also worth it in lockdown! At weekends, you can get original ox rolls from the Ochsenbraterei, Thuringian bratwurst in a roll, ox bratwurst, ox meat patties, chips, pretzels and freshly baked, cinnamon-sugary Auszogne in the beer garden's to-go huts from 11 am. There is also a stall directly opposite with roasted almonds and sweets - Christmas market feeling included.
Farmers' market at the Seehaus
Continuing north, you will come to the Seehaus, where a farmers' market is held every Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm. Here you can stock up on fresh produce from regional producers during a morning stroll. So Sunday brunch is guaranteed!
Last but not least: Mini-Hofbräuhaus
If you still haven't had enough, you can explore the much less busy northern part of the English Garden. Opposite the entrance to the Seehaus is a bridge that crosses the Mittlerer Ring. Once on the other side, keep straight ahead to reach the last culinary stop: the mini Hofbräuhaus. The small beer garden is an absolute dog paradise. Large and small two- and four-legged friends meet here 365 days a year for a walk. But you are also welcome without a dog. Vegans have ahard time, but all friendsof hearty Bavarian cuisine will get their money's worth and the open-fresh delicacies are also very reasonably priced.
