Now take Marsstraße to Seidlstraße and then to the southern boundary of Olypiapark. Past the historic sports facilities, the route takes you northwards through the greenery. From the northern edge of the park, follow the railway tracks westwards to the north marshalling yard. From there you have a great view of the site and the Bavarian Alps. Continue until you reach Ferchenbachstraße. Follow this road northwards for about 2 kilometres until you reach the Feldmochinger See lake.

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

Oberschleissheim regatta course

The Oberschleißheim regatta course, also known as the Olympic regatta course, is a rowing regatta facility that was built in 1972 for the Olympic Games. The entire facility is located half on Munich city and half on Oberschleißheim municipal land in 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 500-metre-long area in front of the mighty grandstand. The tarmac track around the course, where coaches and fans can follow the races by bike, is also a popular training area for inline skaters and racing cyclists.

Right next to the regatta centre is the Regattaparksee lake with sunbathing lawns in the north and west sections. You will always find a sunny or shady spot here. 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 around 12 minutes takes you east across the fields of Oberschleißheim and the A92 motorway to the Oberschleißheim castle grounds.

Schleißheim Palace

Schleißheim Palace is located in the municipality of Oberschleißheim in the district of Munich. It is a complex of three individual palace buildings from 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 original Baroque complex of this size in southern Germany. The palace grounds also have a historic orchard, in which a huge gene pool of almost extinct apple, pear and plum varieties is 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 grand staircase, which together with the Great Hall forms a unique baroque work of art, several magnificent banqueting halls and the large parade flats.

Direction

From the palace grounds, the route continues eastwards along small roads and cycle paths to the northern fringes of the English Garden. On your way, you will 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 opportunity to stop for a bite to eat.

Aumeister in the English Garden

The Aumeister beer garden on the northern edge of the English Garden is a pub and beer garden popular with Munich locals. Situated in the middle of the Isar meadows, the Aumeister is a retreat in the centre of the city. The traditional beer garden is the ideal place to enjoy a cold beer and Bavarian-Mediterranean specialities 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 restaurant is always worth a visit.

Continuing southwards, your route takes you through the entire length of the English Garden. In addition to other beer gardens such as the Seehaus in the English Garden and the famous beer garden at the Chinese Tower, you will also pass historical sights such as the Monopteros round temple.

It's worth leaving your bike here for a moment to enjoy the green view of the city from the hill on which the temple is located.

At the southern end of the garden, the path leads you through the Hofgarten back into the city centre and back to your starting point.
