Hofgarten Tours

star-4.5
297 Reviews
Hofgarten
The former court garden of the Residenz Palace, Munich’s Hofgarten was originally laid out in 1613, characterized by its mulberry tree-lined walkways, ornamental fountains and fruit orchard. A large portion of the formal gardens were restored or redesigned post-WWII, but the central pavilion survived, a domed temple designed by Heinrich Schön the Elder in 1615 and topped with a bronze figure of Tellus Bavarica, the symbol of Bavaria.

Today, the Hofgarten remains one of the city’s most tranquil spots, providing welcome respite from the sightseeing trail and making a popular picnic spot for both locals and tourists. Flanked by 19th century arched arcades, the garden retains much of its Italian Renaissance style, with colorful flowerbeds, manicured lawns and painstakingly restored water features. The gardens also benefit from their strategic location, with the lively Odeonplatz square to the west, the Royal palace to the east and the German Theatre Museum to the north, as well as featuring a café, beer garden and boules pitch.
Address: Odeonsplatz, Munich 80593, Germany

Paul's Private Tour: Third Gender in BavariaCity Packages

Paul's Private Tour: Third Gender in Bavaria

The third gender is not a theory and not a lifestyle. On the other side, religion and religious morality are theories, ideologies and yes, they are lifestyles. With this perspective, we walk through Munich and discuss LGBT-issues with society and also the Nazi-Era. It may be surprising that Islam already had homosexuals integrated into their history. The Catholics also have blessed knights and their fellows. So, what happened with society? "I would rather be a cold warrior than a warm brother," said Bavarian Prime Minister Franz Josef Strauß. Sad but true. Unfortunately, this says a lot about the history of the third gender in Bavaria. Prejudices came through belief, fear or politics and even with the difficult progress, we are far from the freedom that we enjoyed in our society 2000 years ago. In my tour of Munich, I talk about some issues related to the persecution and acceptance of homosexuals in Bavaria.

Your city guides bring you close to the English Garden: Bavarian rulers, famous landscape architects, but also industrial barons have left their mark here. In addition to the well-known sights of the English Garden, we also look at its hidden corners, from the history-steeped beginnings of the park to the weir on the Isar to agricultural use. We start at the MilchHäusl and visit the Hofgarten, the surfers on the Eisbachwelle and the beer garden at the Chinese Tower. We drive north across the idyllic Kleinhesseloher See through the diverse landscape shapes that characterize this park - after all, one of the oldest and largest in the world. Via the Maffeiwerk our path leads along the Isar to the orangery and the stone bench back to the bike rental.
