Schloss Schleissheim, Oberschleissheim
(4.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Composed of three places set in an expansive, Baroque park, Schloss Schleissheim 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.

  • The castle is a great tourist destination just a few kilometres north of Munich. Well maintained castle with beautiful geometric planned Park. Ideally suited for a little walk, approx. 1 h. parking is on site. The Flugwerft of the German Museum is located in the direct vicinity.

  • The Castle "new" (i.e. the Baroque) is wonderful beyond words. Quality the audioguide, you need not to miss any detail (although it is quite long). The castle is full of decorations and works of art, and also the garden that opens before is really beautiful. On the other hand the Castle "old" is totally unnecessary. Features an unlikely collection of pseudo-cribs, useful only if you are experts on the subject.

  • Here is blowing... even the whiff of history through the rooms and the Park is also impressive – who wants can visit also the immediately adjacent Botanical Garden, which is highly recommended (who has time at least 2 hours for this) or the Museum man and nature - very very interesting and directly in the Castle!
