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.

  • Stooort Castle with a very large garden with fountains. S beautiful:) We went on the tour itself, there were many beautiful adornments, huge rugs and paintings, though there was virtually no furniture (unfortunately)

  • ביום חורפי טיילתי בתוך הארמון הוא מאוד מרשים . החדרים גדולים האולמות יותר גדולים ומאוד מרשים אני מאוד נהנתי לראות את הציורים לדעתי כדי לבוא בקיץ ולטייל בגנים 
  • A total of 3 castles belonging to the plant: the old Castle and the new castle castle feel like home. The latter houses an interesting exhibition of porcelain. However, the most beautiful thing in the Palace grounds is the magnificent baroque garden. To walk here is beautiful any time of the year, especially in winter, when the channels are frozen and skaters do their rounds and ice-stick shooters compete.
