West Park is located in the southwest of the city, just about 20 minutes by public transport from Marienplatz. Once the weather warms up, it has much to offer visitors. There is a BBQ area near the lake, a Japanese style garden, a Thai temple, and an outdoor cinema in summer.

You can bring your own picnic to the park, but you don't have to. There’s a beer garden right in the park. There you can also try steckerlfisch (spit-roasted fish), a traditional dish of Munich. Steckerlfisch is made of mackerel which is in season during the summer months.
