Top parks

“The Hofgarten is a central garden next to Odeonsplatz. The Bavarian government resides next to it. The garden hosts seasonal colourful flowers. In the pavilion in the centre of the garden musicians sometimes play music, mainly with violins.”

“Alter Botanischer Garten means “Old botanical garden” (with the garden in Nymphenburg being the “new” one) and it dates back to 1812. It is a small garden that lies between Karlplatz-Stachus and the Central Train Station, easily accessible on foot. It is literally a small oasis in the heart of the city, great to relax and have a break, get some sun, enjoy your ice-cream or simply lie down next to the central fountain, the Neptun-Brunnen. I love leaving the noise of the city behind and getting lost in the “forest-like” vegetation – and being able to return to the hassle of the city centre in less than a minute. Originally the garden was a pure botanical garden, designed by the architect Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell, built in D-form with the greenhouse of the tropical plants being in the north area of the garden. In 1914, the new botanical garden close to Nymphenburg palace was built and the old botanical garden was redesigned to be the park that it is today. As a reminder of the botanical past of the garden, one can still see many exotic plants. The Kunstpavillon in the middle of the garden, destroyed during the Second World War and rebuilt, hosts exhibitions and art events, while the Parkcafé has a beautiful and relaxing Biergarten.”
