I really liked it here. Set just off Odeonplatz, it is a peaceful place. Large and spacious it really is a lovely and plush setting. I here was here around Christmas time but it must look amazing in the summer during full bloom. Recommended.

We walked through this garden on our way from the English Garden back to Munich centre and there were a couple of buskers playing the glockenspiel in the rotunda. Obviously not guaranteed for everyones visit but it made it feel very Bavarian.

Try to sit in the Biergarten and have something to eat. Great place to sit and reflect for a while in between other places to visit. Lovely manicured gardens.

This is a peaceful garden, loads of benches around the fountains. You could grab a book and sit and relax here.

This is a small formal garden just outside the Residenz. In the center is the Diana temple. Several benches to sit on and relax. Just outside the park on the Odeonsplatz there are both Men's and Women's restrooms (go down the stairs).

Basically next to English Garden, it can be a stop over if you are walking towards English Garden from the Odeonsplatz like me. The Deutsches Theatermuseum is right next to it, got some nice photos here!
