With a longer façade than the Palace of Versailles, Schloss Nymphenburg was the impressive summer residence of the Wittelsbachs. The Stone Hall is particularly impressive and the famous 'Schönheitengalerie' (Gallery of the Beauties) containing the portraits of 36 local women, is a must see. A few interesting smaller palaces can be found in the park: the Amalienburg , Pagodenburg and Badenburg. The Marstallmuseum boasts a comprehensive display of carriages, sleds and crockery; the Meditationskapelle (Meditation Chapel) with its Magdalenenklause is also worth a visit.
I have visited the castle twice now and I still experince new things when I get there. The garden is very beutiful arranged. It is worth the money to go here and just look at the exterior itself. Look up at the roof when you get inside! Just this entrancehall is wort all the money you spent to get inside.
This is the place where you can find part of the history of bavaria.
Enjoy looking a potret of young women in the palace, see with your own eyes the souvernier from Napolean (table) and smell the great of King Ludwig.
The palace gardens are the most impressive aspect of the site. The ponds, fountains, and forest trails are very pleasant and worth a long visit which we were not able to take full advantage of. The palace interior is impressive but does not compare to the interiors of similar Russian palaces in Saint Petersburg. I would recommend to the Munich visitor that he make an effort to see the palace.
Best palace in Europe. Friendly and knowledgible guides. A really beautiful place from the past. Best gardens so visit during the late summer or fall. Plan a full day seeing building and grounds. You won't be disappointed
Take the time, make the time in your busy touring schedule to really see the gardens.
Truly breathtaking! There are so many different parts to see. I don't think I have seen them all yet. I plan to return to finish the project. I have actually been there several times and always look forward to returning.
This place was absolutely beautiful! The paintings on the ceilings blew me away! Be cautious when taking pictures though - no flash photography is allowed. Several people in my group were spoken to by officials when they didn't realize their flash on their camera was still on.
There is also a nature museum in a part of the castle that was very fascinating. It includes plants, rocks & minerals, animals, and the human body.
