#1 of 23 in Historic Sites in Munich
Castle Historic Site
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.

  • Very beautiful place to go for sightseeing, for a jog, for some family walk, for some romantic appointment. There's a museum on the inside and several packages you can avail of depending on the amount of things you want to visit on that particular day. We paid 6 euros for our visit to the main building and the two side wings. Was worth it. There's audio guides also for 3,5€ that explain the history behind the gardens and buildings here thoroughly. Internet is available and a souvenir shop and public toilets. Feel free to take bags of any size, there are free lockers to store your personal belongings for free. This is a very ancient place, dating back to 1700s. It's baroque and rococo and late Renaissance all together, it'll be a nice blend to see during spring and summer. A beer garden and restaurant are present within the green area as soon as you enter the gardens right after the main Palace. I recommend going here. Definitely.
  • The palace was very, very big. The paintings was beautiful and if you can imagine how many years it would took to build the King's palace and how tired it was to build it. Almost everything is made out of gold and if you go to the highest point of the palace the view would be extremely beautiful.The King maybe liked ducks and swans because there was a pool for the ducks and swans to swim.If you go to the Kong's palace you would be very interested.
  • Great museum but the garden is actually more beautiful. But if you are interested in history, especially Bavarian and of the House of Wittelsbach, then you will enjoy this.
  • It's a wonderful place to go to. And the palace just looks so majestic from outside. Definitely worth a visit
  • Nice park. Good place to rest and observe fellow tourists. Lol
