    The Monopteros offers a view over the southern English Garden and the skyline of Munich city center. And on snowy winter days, it is especially the youngest of the tobogganists who cavort here. Freshly renovated, the round temple was returned to the public at the end of September 2016 after a year and a half of general renovation.
    Leo von Klenze built the round temple in the Greek style at the behest of King Ludwig I in the first half of the 19th century. The filigree building rests on a mighty, 15 meter high brick foundation, which is elegantly concealed by an artificial hill.

    Located in the middle of the English Garden and is worth a visit.

    The Monopteros is a popular meeting place for old and young. As a cyclist you have to cover the last few meters on foot. The view towards the Frauenkirche is worthwhile. Especially in the early morning, or before sunset, here is a soft, warm light. In autumn, fog often sets the mood.

    A nice place to watch the sun set on balmy summer evenings.

    Rotunda with columns, which, according to modern usage, unlike Tholos, has no cella - a closed interior. In Greek and especially Roman antiquity, the term could also be used for the Tholos. In ancient times Monopteroi served as a kind of canopy for a cult picture.

    Probably the best known motif in the English Garden.

    Anyone in Munich must have been here once. Lying on the meadow in summer and taking in the atmosphere. Or up and enjoy the view / sunset from the Monopteros.
    Then a cold beer at the Chinese Tower ;-)
