I really liked it here. Set just off Odeonplatz, it is a peaceful place. Large and spacious it really is a lovely and plush setting. I here was here around Christmas time but it must look amazing in the summer during full bloom. Recommended.

We walked through this garden on our way from the English Garden back to Munich centre and there were a couple of buskers playing the glockenspiel in the rotunda. Obviously not guaranteed for everyones visit but it made it feel very Bavarian.

Try to sit in the Biergarten and have something to eat. Great place to sit and reflect for a while in between other places to visit. Lovely manicured gardens.

Hofgarten is the court garden just north of Residenz and one of the much needed green spaces in the city of Munich. It was built in the early 17th century. Here you will find a nicely laid out and manicured garden with an interesting centre...More
