Nymphenburg Palace (Schloss Nymphenburg), 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 (Schloss Nymphenburg). 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.

  • This is amazing and very big palace in München, it was light raining in start which become snowfall after few minutes so we enjoyed the view of turning green into white. inside this palace is very beautiful and can't be explained in words or pictures, walking inside will take you in history. i will appreciate palace management who preserved history very carefully. closing time in winter 4:00 PM. i am not sure about other season but if you want explore whole palace you better be there in morning. gladly well organize public transport system of München you can go there by Tram and bus.
  • This is a historic site. The gardens are beautiful. Great place to have a stroll or even jog through. Entrance to the gardens is free but you have to pay to enter the castle. There's a souvenir shop present. There are a few restaurants nearby. Cool place to take pictures.
  • The gardens are majestic. It is easy to miss many grandiose scenes it you only stay with along the promenade. Instead follow it to the end and marvel at the state, then turn left with the castle in your back and explore this area. Next find a map and try to locate the botanical garden and then the cafe
  • Beautiful interior, was expecting for there to be more rooms to see in the apartment museum based on the size of the palace, however still good, particularly the room you first enter and the collection of "beauties". Large garden freely acsessed through gates to the sides of main entrance.
  • Took a walk there on 20th of October 2017 (I didn't enter in the interior of the palace, I've just visited it from outside). It was the same day with the Long Night of Munich Museums. Maybe that's also a reason for why there are so many young people on the stairs. Really nice, it's worth visiting.
