Riemer Park Munich is designed for keeping the air fresh

Long, straight lines and strictly geometric surfaces characterize the image of the Riemer Park Munich. Straight-sided slopes and grid-like groves planted on up to 3 meters high meadows leave no doubt for visitors that this is highly artificial landscape. At every corner of the park children will find a place to play. There even is a skater park which is ideal for scootering, cycling and running. It offers something for every skill level. Because of its very “linear” design you can come here and walk for miles on gravel, tar and stone paths. There are many lonely paths and paths across the park.

The park fulfills an important function as a fresh air corridor for the people living and working in the city. Both the woody strips and the open areas run from southwest to northeast – in the current of the main wind direction. This promotes the exchange of air.
