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).

Seems very popular with the locals. You can get a meal there if you wish, great for people watching.

Need a little downtime away from the mass of people, attractions, etc? This garden has a restaurant, benches, historic landmarks, and green grass. I like to take a piece of shade under a tree, remove my shoes, and enjoy the sounds of the birds. Great...More
