Create an itinerary including Nymphenburg Palace
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. Arrange to visit Nymphenburg Palace and other attractions in Munich using our Munich day trip site.

  • we were looking for something easy to visit after coming off a red-eye into Munich. We had a rental car and, where we parked about ½ mile away and walked, it looked like there may be free parking...

  • This is second time I visit this palace after 12 years, and this time with my kids. The Palace tour is impressive for the adults, but not for my kids. The garden is nice and good for walk, but not very impressive. There are a lot of parking space outside the palace. So feel free to drive to this place and have a good walk outside the palace.
  • Very neat place to visit. I thought it would be more exquisite on the outside as far as manicured. Everything was still fun to see. The inside had some major things to see that you just wouldn’t imagine being anywhere except a museum.
