Maybe you're more lucky than I was - the beautiful garden was closed when I was there although according to the signs/information it should have been open.
Anyway, while the interior of the Franciscan monastery and church was destroyed (or removed and sold) by the communists the garden was restored in 2002 and is more beautiful than before. It was originally an orchard and vegetable garden of the Franciscan monks.
On the Franciscan monastery: The buildings burned down in 1270 and were quickly reconstructed in Gothic style. In 1285 the new church was consecrated by the Bishop of Regensburg in presence of German King Rudolf I. and other aristocratic officials and ecclesiastic dignitaries of the Empire. Vitus II of Bohemia and King Rudolf's daughter were married here four days after the consecration of the church. What a history!
Directions: southwestern part of the old town
