The Hofgarten is a garden located in the center of Munich between the Residenz and the Englischer Garten. Commissioned by Duke Maximilian I and built between 1613-17, the Hofgarten is an Italian style Renaissance garden. In the center of the garden is a pavilion, built for the goddess Diana, with eight arches from which paths emerge into the garden. The center pavilion was built in 1615 and is topped by a replica of the sculpture of Bavaria by Hubert Gerhard, created in 1623. The Hofgarten is open to the public and is very popular with both tourists and locals.
