Nymphenburg Palace, Munich

4.5
While millions of tourists flock to the city for its world-famous beer festival, few find their way to the tranquil Nymphenburg Palace. Renowned architect Agostino Barelli designed this sprawling, 200 hectare (490 acre) garden oasis, which was completed in 1675. The palace once served as the summer residence of Bavarian kings. The facade was redesigned in the French Baroque style in 1716, and now is about 700 m (2,300 ft) wide. You can visit both the gardens and their several museums. The most notable one, inside the former royal stables, contains one of the biggest horse carriage collections in Europe. Regular guided tours aren't available, but you can pick up an informative audio guide at the site's entrance.

  • The sight of the castles in the snow-covered Munich was real. The admission price was reasonable. You should set it, you can visit the Castle not in peace. Several tours at the same time pursued us in the Castle. You could not learn alone on the respective area, where they stood, as part the information boards were obscured by the participants of the tours. Accordingly much time and patience are needed.

  • Ancient Palace, you can take the audio guide, fairly regular inside and outside the Palace. An interesting collection of carriages. For variety, you can visit, but without much expectations. The large park around with swans and Lakes

  • Truly beautiful palace. The attention to detail in the construction was amazing. We had a great tour guide (private). But you can get audio listening devices. The gardens are amazing, and everything is spotless. Look out for the angel on the ceiling with a red cloth. No matter were you stand in the room, he always appears to fly away from you. Tickets are cheap and a nice way to spend a day.
  • Beautiful and breathtaking palace! We came out of season so 90% of it was closed! Still worth walking around. According to the signed all areas are open April-October, try to make it then. There were a ton of birds on the property, the landscaping was beautiful. The Architecture was gorgeous with several different regions and eras in one location. I want to come back just to see the inside of the buildings we missed!
  • Breathtaking and stunning . I could use more words but it's simple beautiful. You can spend hours walking around the gardens . The inside is beautifully decorated . My jaw nearly hit the floor in the main hall . Really enjoyed the museum. It's so easy to get to from the city centre . They provide lockers and also have a gift shop . Definitely a must see in Munich
  • Huge castle and park, very popular with tourists. The main area is always quite crowded in the summer. The grounds are well maintained and worth visiting. Giving a proper look into the history of Bavarian kings and royalty. Recommended! Good for jogging. Wild animals such as deer, ducks, geese, etc. so not too good for walking with dogs. Cycling forbidden.
  • One of the must see locations in Munich. You can either reach the location with underground, bus or tram. The area is simply wast and you can not explore the whole garden ad all the statues at one day. The gardens are free to enter, but you need a ticket to enter the castle. The lake in front of the castle is visited by swans and the view is simply amazing. The chambers and the furniture in the castle are quite stunning together with the stories about this Palace.
