Garden · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
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.

  • Very English looking garden with a lovely spot that has the White Rose Memorial (the student resistance against Nazism)  more »
  • We came by the Odeonplatz so we saw the entrance from there. We had a break in the Starbucks nearby which happened to have a door that led here. The garden is quite large with a few ornaments around.....  more »

  • This a beautiful location in the middle of a garden. If you come and visit you may see random artist playing the Piano, Violin. This location is also hear restaurants, other attractions.. a gorgeous garden of roses and other flowers. They also have public restrooms. Lots of seating area. You won't regret it!
  • A beautiful park, full of many different buildings and gardens. You really need time in order to walk arround everything, but it's absolutely worth it. A must go place while in Munich.
