Sendling stretches from Theresienwiese (where the Oktoberfest takes place every year) up to the western bank of the Isar river. Close to Thalkirchen, which borders with Sendling in the south west, the Munich Zoo "Hellabrunn" invites to spend time outdoors. There is the Westpark, where, in summer many cultural events and open air cinemas can be found at a small lake within the park. An ensemble with a Chinese and Japanese Garden as well as a Nepalese Pagoda is very impressive and offers the opportunity to relax in the great greenery of the park.
