The lovely Englischer Garten is one of the largest public gardens in Germany. Being stretched from the center of Munich to the north-eastern limits of the city, the garden was created in 1789. Sir Benjamin Thompson, who later became the Count Reichsgraf von Rumford designed the garden, and his successors, Reinhard von Werneck and Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell have extended and improved the park.
The Englischer Garten covers an area of 1.4 square miles, or almost 1,000 hectares, exceeding the surface of the Central Park of New York. It was designed, as the name implies, in the English style, an informal landscape gardening. The garden now lays on the land owned by the last Wittelsbach ruler, the prince Maximilian III Joseph, as he died in 1777 without having children.
