Nymphenburg Palace, Munich

4.5
While millions of tourists flock to the city for its world-famous beer festival, few find their way to the tranquil Nymphenburg Palace. Renowned architect Agostino Barelli designed this sprawling, 200 hectare (490 acre) garden oasis, which was completed in 1675. The palace once served as the summer residence of Bavarian kings. The facade was redesigned in the French Baroque style in 1716, and now is about 700 m (2,300 ft) wide. You can visit both the gardens and their several museums. The most notable one, inside the former royal stables, contains one of the biggest horse carriage collections in Europe. Regular guided tours aren't available, but you can pick up an informative audio guide at the site's entrance.

  • The entrance hall of the palace is simply stunning and great one to see. I suggest sticking with the simple version of the ticket that allows access to the basic and main part of the palace and not getting the upgraded one that is for the chariots, porcelain exhibition. It's not an extreme difference in pricing but adding up 2-3 tickets it is a substantial one. Enjoy your visit in any case
  • The palace itself is OK but oh boy the park... We walked all over the palace and saw it from the other side and it was breathtaking. It's a bit too clean but beautiful scenery, animals, and very calming. Wasn't really crowded either. The tourist attractions are a bit crowded but the park itself was amazing.
