Interesting Facts/Records (in own words):
The 25-metre-high Chinese tower was built in 1789/1790 according to a draught by Joseph Frey of Johann Baptist Lechner. According to the habits at that time Landschaftsgärten were divided in the English style with pleasure with buildings and monuments. The model for the Chinese tower stands in the royal Kew Gardens in the southwest of London. During the second world war the Chinese tower burnt itself down in July, 1944 after bomb attacks, in 1951/1952 he became faithfully 5-storey in wood reestablished. On foot of the Chinese tower there is the Munich beer garden second largest with about 7000 places for which the concept " Chinese tower " stands almost already as a synonym. In the Advent time a small Christmas fair is held here.
