Mo to Su from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AMFacing Residenz Palace, the Hofgarten (royal garden) was commissioned by Duke Maximilian I and built between 1613-17. All its paths converge on the dodecahedral pavilion in the center, which is crowned by a statue of Diana, one of Bavaria's most recognizable symbols. The Hofgarten is enclosed on two sides by a series of arcades which were originally decorated with murals. The only surviving painting is Peter von Cornelius' fascinating depiction of the story of the Bavarian royal family.
