Riem Park

A view of the flat expanses of Riem park in the east of the city. It's built on the site of the old Munich airport and seems to have been designed to replicate some of the shapes and patterns of an airfield. I have heard some people criticise it for being too uniform butI like itssimplicity.

Thanks Arnd. This is one of my favourite parks, just because it is so open.
