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.

  • It is a beautiful garden, but in the winter, cold and without sunshine does not seem to be of the best tours. The grass is trimmed. Have that circular central monument, with curved roof that did not allow interior access

  • The courtyard garden is really lovely in the summer. In the winter, he seems a little bald and leave because nothing blooms
