A Pleasant Park

The Old Botanical Garden is appropriately named—it's been around since 1814 and was commissioned by King Maximilian. The garden was originally dedicated to exotic flora, as well as local plant life from Munich, but when the Nazis rose to power, all foreign flora was removed from the garden, which they eventually transformed into a park—complete with a fountain of Neptune and a cafe (both of which we recommend checking out). The park was heavily damaged during WWII, but has since been refurbished and become one of Munich's best-loved open spaces. Swing in to catch some Bavarian sunshine or grab a coffee—whatever you end up doing, the history-rich space here is sure to be a welcome addition to your Munich trip plan.
