Hofgarten

The Hofgarten is a public garden situated in the heart of Munich, Germany. This Italian Renaissance style garden was constructed in the early 17th century by order by Maximilian I. The Hofgarten features a series of well-manicured paths that are flanked by statues and sculptures from different eras. Hofgarten was destroyed during WWII and rebuilt using a combination of elements from a 19th century landscape garden with some of the original formal elements of its 17th century design. Now Hofgarten is one of the prime meeting places in Munich and a popular place for locals to hang out.

  • Take the path to the centre of Hofgarten to the pavilion built in 1615 to honour the goddess Diana, one of the most interesting pieces of historical architecture in Munich.
  • Check out the arcades in the west and north of Hofgarten and you will find a series of interesting wall paintings that tell the story of the history of Bavaria all the way up to modern Munich.
  • Visit the sombre black granite memorial to the White Rose Group, whose members staged a non-violent campaign against Hitler and were eventually executed.

Munich has some of the most efficient public transportation in all of Germany, so it is not difficult to get to Hofgarten without using a car. The easiest way to get there is to take the U-Bahn to the Odeonsplatz stop. From there you can follow the signs that will lead you through the eastern gates of Hofgarten. There are also several bus routes that pass near Hofgarten, stopping just a short distance away. Once there you can explore these magnificent grounds on foot, as Hofgarten is known as one of the best places in all of Munich to walk.
