Nymphenburg Palace was built in 1675 to serve as the summer recreational palace of the Bavarian kings. It is one of the biggest royal palaces in Europe that covers almost 500 acres and sits on the outskirts of Munich. This complex features a typical Baroque façade, beautifully bedecked interiors, and remarkable gardens and lakes. Also called Schloss Nymphenburg, this commanding palace consists of Southern, Northern, and Central Pavilions and is an architectural masterpiece, strongly reflecting the regal nature of Bavarians.

Inside the palace, you’ll see the Carriage Museum (Marstallmuseum), the Museum of Nymphenburg Porcelain, King Ludwig I’s Gallery of Beauties, and the Elector Max Emanuel’s Great Gallery of Beauties. Visitors can also enjoy the gondola rides around the palace lake and classical music concerts in the Hubertus Hall. The forest walks are also quite famous among travelers in the warm weather. In the gardens, there is a Hedge Theatre, marble figures of Greek Gods, a big fountain, and the country’s 1st hot-water heating system, the Palm House.
