The great outdoors and big-city culture come together seamlessly at these beautiful parks.

Englischer Garten, Munich

11 of 29

City officials had the foresight in the 1790s to set aside more than 900 acres of prime real estate for the Englischer Garten, one of Europe’s largest. You can rent a bike to explore trails that wind past green lawns and bridges toward a central lake with paddleboats. Warm weather brings sunbathers (some known to strip down to nothing), surfers, and plenty of thirsty locals and tourists alike, who head for the Chinese Tower, where the beer garden has room for 7,000.
