Munich Chinese Tower

Munich Chinese Tower


Famous Pagoda in the English Garden

There is no other building in Munich that is as representative of the English Garden as the Chinese Tower. The 25-metre-high wooden structure was built in 1790 in the style of a Chinese pagoda and was only opened to the public in 1792 as part of the official opening of the English Garden as a viewing platform. It was hit during an air raid on Munich during the Second World War and burnt down completely. It was not until 1952 that the Chinese Tower was reopened after reconstruction. After the tower was closed in the 1970s for safety reasons, it may now only be entered by the brass bands that regularly perform there.
