Nymphenburg Palace Complex in Munich Hall in the Nymphenburg Castle in Munich Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich at night Castle Park at Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich in autumn

Nymphenburg is not only the spacious castle complex of the Bavarian rulers, but is also an extensive park with unique water work shows and is the home to a rich sculpture program and extraordinary park castles.
On a tour, you can take a look at the birth room of King Ludwig II and the world-famous Beauty Gallery of King Ludwig I.
The original Baroque ornamental garden has been repeatedly modified and expanded over the years. Today, it is now an English landscape garden that was designed in the 19th century. Its painterly design was created by the famous garden artist, Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell.
To visit the park castles, we recommend a long walk through the 200-hectare park. The Parkschlösschen Badenburg and its impressive swimming pool, the Asia-inspired Pagodenburg, the Madgalenerklause (which appears as an artificial ruin), and the Jagdschlösschen Amalienburg can be explored in a symmetrical arrangement.

Near Nymphenburg Palace

Elector Ferdinand Maria donated the castle of his wife, Henriette Adelaide of Savoy, to his long-awaited son Max Emanuel shortly after his birth. In 1664, the construction began. Although it is hardly conceivable today, Nymphenburg laid in the open field at that time, located two hours from the Munich residence. Today it is a green oasis for public use, located right in the middle of the city. The master builders, Agostino Barelli and Enrico Zuccalli, had originally designed Nymphenburg as a Baroque palace. Later, elements of Rococo and Classicism were added. During the reign of the Elector Max Emanuel (1680-1726), the castle was given its present dimensions.
