The former Rococo garden of the bishops´ residence from the end of the 18th century contained a summer house with a grotto, glasshouses, and water features. Some elements of later romanticising adaptations survive. The 0.2 hectare garden, part of the bishops´ residence at no.4 Biskupská Street, is situated in the area of the town walls bailey at the southwest edge of the historic centre of the city of České Budějovice, near the confluence of the Vltava and Malše rivers.

The elongated space of the Bishops' Garden is divided into two parts, separated by the axis of the entrance gate from the complex of the Bishopric and the opposite gazebo with the entrance from the bank of a dead arm of the Malše river.

The southern section of the garden is an ornamental park with surviving paths, shrubs and several trees, dominated by the central linden tree; other plants here are e.g. horse chestnuts, from shrubs it is silver berry or lilac.

The southern part near the Iron Maiden gate is romanticised - the slightly elevated ground is accessible by a staircase of quarried stone, the soil under the acacia trees is covered by periwinkle.
