I know that this park is probably unknown to many locals, at least those who don’t live in the north part of Munich. For many this park may look like any park but: it is indeed a very unique place.
Created in 2004 over a highway tunnel, the Petuelring, which is part of the busiest highway of Munich, this park has dramatically improved the quality of life for the people living around it. It is an oasis of tranquility, a place to relax, despite the huge amount of cars underneath it.
It fascinates me to walk towards the park and see the highway with all its cars, noise and pollution disappearing under the earth and leaving space to a quiet green park.
For those who find the way there, Petuelpark hides a surprise: it offers the possibility to go back home with a photo of two of the most famous buildings – symbols of Munich (the Olympiaturm and the BMW Headquarters) both in the same picture! Choose the late day hours and you will be also compensated with a beautiful sky with the most amazing sunset colours!
