A Renaissance Garden

The Hofgarten was first built between 1613 and 1617, commissioned by Duke Maximillion I as part of the Royal Residence. The Garden is constructed in a Renaissance style, centered around the garden pavilion built by Heinrich Schön the elder in 1615. From the Pavilion, eight pathways branch off in diagonal lines sectioning the garden. Unfortunately, during WWII, most of the garden was obliterated. When it was rebuilt, the garden took on styles from both its original design from the 17th century as well as newer landscape garden qualities from the 19th century style. Today, it is opened to the public to explore, relax, and enjoy.
