The English Garden

Recreation for everyone

The English Garden is one of the largest parks in the world and one of the first that everyone was allowed to enter. Since 1789, the "People's Park" on the Isar has been welcoming walkers and those seeking relaxation with its meadows and paths as well as in the teahouse, at the Chinese Tower or in the beer garden.

It is just under ten minutes by car from the HYPERION Hotel München.

Nymphenburg Palace

Nymphenburg Palace was built in 1664 by Elector Ferdinand Maria. Built in the style of an Italian villa, it was a gift for the birth of the heir to the throne to his wife. From the beginning of the 18th century, it was expanded into a baroque palace complex. In terms of width, it even surpasses the French palace of Versailles. The magnificent rooms, which are designed in the Baroque, Rococo and Classicist styles, can be visited. Today, the palace also houses the Marstall Museum, the Porcelain Museum and the Museum of Man and Nature.
