Hofgarten, Munich

(4.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Munich vacation trip planner makes visiting Hofgarten and other Munich attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A gem, directly adjacent to the city centre. Boule players watch, listen to lap the fountain. Unfortunately since 2017 without the venerable Tambosi restaurant but it sure new gastro there will be.

  • A small garden which offers seating on benches, in front of the beautiful fountains, with the rest of the garden. A dome under which, on sunny days, some playing musical instruments, offering passersby a big smile. Sometimes dancing tango, salsa and other dances. The old gentlemen playing boules without creating noise or nuisance to others. A place of peace and silence at the center of the city.

  • Just behind the Munich residence and great place for chilling out and relax. If you like, grab a beer or have some food nearby.

  • A nice park with beautiful flowers and scenery all around. You will often find a musician playing in the center. Take a break and enjoy the park.
  • Lovely park near Munich's city centre. I was there during the summer, and the park was beautiful. Colorful flowers, neatly trimmed bushes, and shade providing trees made for a wonderful walk in the afternoon.
  • Very nice formal garden right between Residenz and Englischer Garten. There is a little temple where people play live music and dance Salsa on weekends, old men play boule, kids are strolling under the chestnut trees, and families lounge in the Tambosi Cafè garden. Super relaxing.
  • Beautiful french garden right in the middle of Munich. Great to just have a break and enjoy, also great spot for amazing backdrops on your pictures.
  • Beautiful garden for a quiet afternoon... even when the fountains are covered and the flowers gone in readiness for winter!
