JGarden Description:There is not much of a garden here, mostly a waterfall and small landscaped space near a Japaense tea house (or teehaus). The pavilion was donated to the city to commemorate the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. Tea ceremonies are held here hourly on the weekend. The Englischer Garten is really one of Munich's jewels. It is one of the oldest English-style landscape gardens on the continent and one of the largest municipal parks in Europe. Although perhaps best known for its nudists, the park is popular with all types of people all year round. Other features include a Chinese pagoda with adjoining beer garden, the Monopteros Greek temple, a river and a boating lake.

Take the U-Bahn 3 or 6. Get off at the Universitat station. 




My lodge is at the foot
Of the Moon Waiting Hill -
Almost I regret
When the shortening hill shadow
At length disappears.



Waga ie wa
Tsukimachi yama no
Fumoto nite
Katamuku sora no
Kage oshizo omo.
