Green oasis according to the Italian model

On the edge of Munich’s historic old town is an idyllic place: the Munich Hofgarten. The picturesque park, which borders the Residenz and the Bavarian State Chancellery, dates back to the 17th century. Between 1613 and 1617 it was laid out by order of Elector Maximilian I, modelled on Italian Renaissance gardens. After the park was initially reserved exclusively for dukes and electors, Elector Karl Theodor then opened the Hofgarten to the public. Highlights in the Hofgarten include the arcaded walkways with their beautiful frescoes and the Diane Temple with its eight entrance arches. On the roof of the pavilion is a copy of the bronze figure “Tellus Bavaria”.
