Traveling can have it’s ups and downs. Some days are all clouds and rainbows, while other days test you as a person. My favorite day in Munich was the day we had nothing planned. No tours, churches, or otherwise. We were free to roam the city.

This day we happened to decide to grab some bikes and check out the park everyone bragged about, The English Garden. Our perfect day was almost ruined as we could not find where to purchase our bikes. Unsure of whether we should even ride bikes in a foreign city we were about ready to give up when we followed the trail of bikes. Amongst the bikes we found a shop listed on the city map. If all else fails then look around for clues, you can always find what you want with a little detective work!

For just a few bucks we each were set up with our own bikes. We were ready to hit the road!

Munich is such a fun city full of booths, food, and souvenirs. Riding through the streets was a bit daunting at first along side the cars. However once we made it through there are streets just for bikes!

After hitting the streets we decided to check out ” Englischer Garten” or The English Garden, a park full of green flowing hills, rivers and even a beer garden!

We made our way to The City Center inside the park. Isn’t it beautiful?

Then since we had worked up quite the appetite we stopped at the beer garden for beer and brats!

After we filled our belly full of delicious food and beer, we then headed to explore more of the Park. We had no idea we would encounter such an amazing spot. The Garden offers surfers a chance to show off their skills. There is a dam which is set up to produce a wave under a small bridge where surfers line up and take their shot.

The English Gardens were absolutely beautiful with tons of trails for any bike rider to enjoy and bask in. If you are in Munich take a chance on a random bike ride through the city park and enjoy all the beauty it has to offer you.
