ist die älteste Naherholungsanlage Münchens. Direkt an der Isar. Im Sommer ein Traum. Ansonsten schön zum Spazierengehen. Kommt man am besten mit dem Rad hin.

Hier lebt München an den schönen Sommerwochenenden! Picknick in den Rucksack und einen langen Spaziergang an der Isar entlang. Badesachen nicht vergessen!

Der markierte Punkt stellt ca. die Mitte des Flauchers da. Man kann ab der Brudermühlbrücke grillen, das ist die der Wohnung am nächsten liegende Brücke
