Schleissheim palace complex, Oberschleissheim

(4.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Every season a great place. And on the warmer Tagen☉, just a romantic place search, at a geschützem shiver sunny place in the Green and with the loved ones the ducks or the singing of the birds listen ♡

  • Location-just 10-15 minutes from s-bahn. The Park is not very big, but nice, there's where to walk, relax on benches, feed the fish in the Canal, gondola ride, feed the swans and ducks (bring a loaf). In the Park three Palace-three museums. Old Palace-exhibition about religious holidays in different countries and an exhibition about Königsberg. New Palace-rooms and art gallery (very cold). Lusthajm-the smallest Palace, exhibition of porcelain on two floors. The place is not popular among tourists, so you can take a break from the crowds and everything calmly. To save, it makes sense to buy Jahreskarten or Mehrtagestickets der Bayerischen Schloesserverwaltung.

  • 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.
  • The Schleißheim (Schleissheim) palace complex is an absolute stunning place to visit - old palace turned museum, new palace (in photos), breathtaking gardens and water features including a long canal for summer gondolas and winter curling, 3rd palace (Lustheim) AND Biergarten set under old large oak trees
  • Very beautiful location with a great garden, where a walk can get you back in those aristocratic times. Nevertheless it is quiet and intimate.
