“A quiet corner near the city center”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

A lot of people want to see a beautifully manicured garden and head to the English Garden...and that's not what they get. This is what they were looking for, and it's a nice tranquil spot just off of Odeonsplatz.

“the hidden city garden”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The Hofgarten is within walking distance from Marienplatz and right next to the Residenz.

At the center of this charming garden is an octagonal pavilion. Blooming roses greet the visitors in the summer with several fountains around the garden. Although it doesn’t come with infinite green grass field as in English Garden, there are quite a few benches to relax and unwind.

I also recommend a beautiful walk from the Hofgarten to Englischer Garten.

“Nice Garden”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

The Hofgarten is beside the Residence and the garden follows the Italian Baroque style. At its center there is an octagonal pavilion and inside it are several fountains. There are many benches at the garden to relax in. Also there is a good Egyptian Museum in the Residence beside the garden.

“A peaceful place”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

If you need to relax you can sit there, just enjoy the beautiful gardens or maybe bring a book. You won't be bothered and sometimes they play live classical music
