Now take Marsstraße to Seidlstraße and then to the southern border of Olypiapark. Past the historic sports facilities, the path takes you north through the greenery. From the northern edge of the park, follow the tracks west to the north marshalling yard. From there you have a great view of the grounds and the Bavarian Alps. Continue on to Ferchenbachstraße. Follow this road north for about 2 km until you reach the Feldmochinger See lake.

Continuing north along small roads and paths between numerous fields, the path leads you under the A99 motorway to the Eishüttenweg. Follow this path through the green landscape past the Regattaparksee lake to the actual destination - the Olympic rowing regatta course.

Regatta course Oberschleißheim

The Oberschleißheim Regatta Course, also known as the Olympic Regatta Course, is a rowing regatta facility that was built in 1972 on the occasion of the Olympic Games. Half of the facility is located in the city of Munich and the other half in Oberschleißheim, in the Dachauer Moos, and covers an area of 850,000 square metres. In addition to rowing regattas, the facility is used for canoe races, canoe polo, swimming competitions, running events, cycling races, triathlons, corporate events and beach volleyball. The more than two-kilometre-long pool of the regatta facility is also open for bathing and swimming in the approximately 500-metre-long area in front of the mighty grandstand. The asphalt track around the course, where coaches and fans can accompany the races by bike, is also a popular training area for inline skaters and racing cyclists.

Right next to the regatta course is the Regatta Park Lake with sunbathing lawns in the north and west sections. Here you will always find a sunny or shady spot. The lake is 15 hectares in size and up to 15 metres deep. The shore is mostly shallow, which is ideal for families with children.

A short drive of about 12 minutes takes you across the fields of Oberschleißheim and the A92 motorway to Oberschleißheim Castle.

Schleißheim Palace

The Schleißheim Palace complex is located in the municipality of Oberschleißheim in the district of Munich. It is a complex of three individual palace buildings of the 17th and 18th centuries, which are axially connected by a spacious garden. The New Palace was built at the beginning of the 18th century as a new residence for Elector Max Emanuel.

The gardens are the only Baroque complex of this size in southern Germany that has been preserved in its original state. In addition, the palace grounds have a historic orchard in which a huge gene pool of almost extinct apple, pear and plum varieties is being preserved for posterity. This fruit can also be purchased from September to October in the " Blauer Kurfürst -Laderl" in Freisinger Str. 18. In the castle's own distillery, the fruit is also processed and distilled into "Schleißheimer Schlossbrände".

You can also discover many rooms in the palace that are worth seeing and give an impression of courtly life: for example, the spacious staircase, which together with the Great Hall forms a unique baroque synthesis of the arts, several magnificent banqueting halls and the large parade flats.

From the palace grounds, you continue eastwards along small roads and cycle paths to the northern foothills of the English Garden. On your way you pass numerous fields and smaller settlements until you finally turn south and reach the actual northern edge of the English Garden. There, the Aumeister offers the possibility of a stop for refreshments.

Aumeister in the English Garden

The Aumeister beer garden on the northern edge of the English Garden is a popular pub with an adjoining beer garden among Munich residents. Located in the middle of the Isarauen meadows, the Aumeister is a retreat in the middle of the big city. The traditional beer garden is the ideal place to enjoy a cool beer and Bavarian-Mediterranean delicacies under the shade of chestnut trees after a bike ride or a long walk through the English Garden.

The beer garden offers all the Bavarian classics: From crispy grilled chicken and homemade Obazdn with oven-fresh pretzels to coffee, fresh Auszogne and various crêpes and strudels, everything is here. Of course, Steckerlfisch fans also get their money's worth here. Even outside the beer garden season, the Aumeister inn is always worth a visit.
