Chinese Tower - Munich

The Chinese Tower is a pagoda that was built when the English Gardens were created in 1789. Around the tower is now one of Munich's most popular beer gardens. Often a brass band will play live from the first floor of the tower. See an image of the Chinese Tower from space.

The Kocherlball takes place here every July.

The Hofbräu hell beer served there is poured from a wooden barrel. Except the barrel never empties. It is just a pipe fed through.

Bad food and bad beer.

They tore down the playground last year to make room for the public viewing of the World Cup and have not replaced it with anything equivalent for the kids. Just two swings and a small wooden house for toddlers. What a shame, because it used to be very popular with families. We don't go there anymore.

The playground's old equipment was removed because the TÃœV said it was unsafe.
