Like other city parks popular with locals and visitors alike - but much more classically formal than, say the Englischer Garten

Hofgarten

Just a formality

One of the factors that has always made Munich such a lovely city is its knack of mixing its urban side with large, easily accessible green spaces where locals can relax for a bit away from the hustle and bustle. The rectangular Hofgarten, right off the centrally located Odeonsplatz, is one of them, though radically different from the enormous Englischer Garten. Just north of the royal Residenz, this was built in the early 17th century as the immaculately groomed Italianate garden of the Bavarian court. At its centre is the "Temple of Diana", and along one side is the Bavarian state chancellery.
