Northwest of the Alstadt, this regal palace with its lavish gardens sprawl around 5km.
The summer home of the royal Wittelsbach family, this Baroque palace is not to be missed while exploring the Bavarian city. With lavishly decorated interiors and sumptuous period rooms, this palace, though regarded as not the best form of Baroque architecture, is yet quite impressive. There are a number of attractions worth visiting here - the Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory, the Marstall Museum, two concert halls, the Museum of Mankind and Nature, the magnificent garden pavilions and the palace itself. As you explore the ground floor and first floor of interiors of the palace, amidst antechambers and apartments, what is striking is the two Gallery of Beauties, one of Max EmanuelÍs and the other dedicated to Ludwig. One of the portraits here is of Irish Lola Montez, Ludwig's alliance with her triggered the revolution of 1848. The second floor is closed for the public since the Duke of Bavaria still resides here. The Marstall museum in the Southern Wing of the palace is an insight into the history of horse drawn vehicles. The northern wing is not far behind, with the palace chapel, the concert hall and the Museum of Mankind. It is said, that the ideal time to visit the Nymphenburg palace is during the summer months, when the garden is in full bloom in vivid hues. Be sure to be devoting almost an entire day in exploring the several attractions in the palace complex or just spending leisure time in the park.
