The Hofgarten of the Residence Palace

The Hofgarten of the Residence Palace was designed to include the massive Baroque-era ramparts which mark the area’s eastern border to this day.

In the late 18th century, court gardener Johann Prokop Mayer (1735-1804) was commissioned with designing the garden. Mayer skilfully divided the grounds with their difficult layout into autonomous symmetrical parts. Fully in tune with rococo taste, he furnished the garden spaces with a wealth of trimmed fruit trees, tub plants, flower beds, shrubs, trellis structures and pergolas.
