     After Napoleon demolished the Burgbastei - a bastion near the imperial palace - in 1809, the open space was used to create the Burggarten, which was for the exclusive use of the imperial family, and the Volksgarten/the People's Garden, which was open to the public. The garden was extended in 1857 when the remaining city fortifications were torn down.
