Hofgarten, Munich

4.5
#7 of 17 in Parks in Munich
For some quiet time during your sightseeing, stop at Hofgarten, between the English Garden and Munich Residenz. The Italian Renaissance garden was built in 1613, and features gravel paths, fountains, flower beds, and a cafe. Look for the Temple of Diana in the center of the garden. In the northeast corner, a square, black granite memorial is dedicated to the White Rose group, whose members were executed for a nonviolent campaign against Hitler's regime. In warm weather, you may find musicians playing in the garden, as well as locals playing boccie ball on the gravel paths. A visit to Hofgarten represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Munich day trip planning website to plot your vacation.

  • In the courtyard, I love to spend my lunch hour. You will find peace and relaxation in the middle of the city. Every tourist in Munich must have visited the garden. The gardens are lovingly maintained, clean. There are plenty of benches. On the outskirts you can watch the boccia players and there is also a beer garden
