Castles & Palaces


“Favourite palace of the Bavarian kings and former summer residence of the Wittelsbach dynasty”

Located in the western part of Munich, the palace had originally been planned in baroque style, but was later modified in the style of Rococo and Classicism.

The palace along with Nymphenburg Park and the small Park Palaces forms a unit. As one of the largest royal palaces in Europe, it is home of many famous attractions, for example the Gallery of Beauties.

The palace is home of several museums:

Marstall Museum / Museum of Carriages and Sleighs

The Nymphenburg Porcelain Museum

Museum Mensch und Natur /Man and Nature

Erwin von Kreibig-Museum



The Amalienburg is one of the most exquisite creations in the European Rococo style. The individual rooms are differentiated according to the precepts of French court art.


As a bathing pavilion, the Badenburg belongs to a long tradition dating back to the opulent baths of the Roman emperors and with a temple of Apollo at lake Badenburg.


Was used by the nobles as place of retreat and rest, exquisitely and exoticly arranged and furnished of the 18th century’s China fashion.


The Magdalenenklause was conceived as the living quarters of a hermit and stands in a small, “overgrown” wood.


The entrance of the park is designed in a strict French style, the rest is an English style landscape park. Placed with small streams, canals, cascades and bridges, his path network and artificial lakes, the park appears like a “fairytale forest”.
