Schleissheim palace complex, Oberschleissheim

Composed of three places set in an expansive, Baroque park, Schleissheim palace complex served as a summer residence for the Bavarian rulers of the House of Wittelsbach. The Old Palace was built as a Renaissance country house and hermitage by William V in 1598. You can still see the original central gate and clock tower, along with exhibits on religious culture and the history of Prussia. The New Palace is an important example of German Baroque architecture, with many resonant halls and galleries retaining their original late Baroque decoration, mostly focused on the German victory over the Turks. Lastly, the smaller Lustheim Palace is a 17th-century Italian-style garden villa built for Maximilian II Emanuel and his first wife, Austrian princess Maria Antonia. Lying on a circular island in the Baroque court garden, the villa contains 18th-century frescoes, as well as an extensive collection of Meissen porcelain.

  • Beautiful complex of three castles, with a huge park that makes you want to take a stroll or relax on a bench in the shade. For my taste, I like most outsiders, although there are substantial stucco in newest Castle. But the rooms are full of paintings that I have not liked. In the other I saw only objects of all kinds (miniatures, porcelain and more) I don't like one bit. Thank goodness that the cost of the ticket for all three is not excessive (8 euros) and you can decide whether and what to visit, each has its cost. The Park is free.

  • We had a great evening, with excellent explanation by classical music was played. The fireworks at the end was beautiful. Luckily the weather held. The lighting was stunning. However a few points of criticism, there is: the sound could be optimized by the speakers and also when you leave the castle the output range. When panic breaks out here, I don't want to have to go through the narrow gate! At the parking people may be made and before it travels into and must use complicated, who say that it is full. Perhaps the parking not so many cars are designed, but something must be done. Such signs could be helpful.

  • A magnificent scenery at Barackmusik in Fireworks: one of the most beautiful baroque gardens shines with the brilliance of many lights.

  • Beautiful Castle close to the city limits, just a bike ride away:)
  • The new palace is architecturally grand but I was very disappointed by Amigoni's frescoes. It's worth to see the hall and staircase: great examples of german baroque. The Lustheim Palace has the most splendid collection of fine china. The park itself can totally compete with the one from Versailles. Le Nôtre would appreciate.
  • Three Schloss in total, I came alone and the whether is cold that day, but the Schloss did not upset me like the whether. Swans are cute, they were not afraid to be close with people, but some were naughty since they seemed somehow angry, I am not sure if it was due to their hunger. I really love the splendid domes of every Schloss ! Student price is 6 euro for three sites, that's a bargain. Cool
  • This is an excellent opportunity to visit a typical Bavarian Mansion/Castle just a few miles off Munich. There is something for any age: you can walk on the gardens, visit the inside, relax at the biergarten (or have local specialties, which are excellent). And right by, you can visit the branch of the Deutsche Museum based on a WWII airfield, with planes, and activities for kids. You can make it into a daily trip. Highly recommended.
  • Incredibly beautiful castle complex. Possibly the most peaceful place in Munich on a slow day.
