Schloss Nymphenburg 1

Nymphenburg Palace was commissioned by Elector Ferdinand Maria and his wife Henriette Adelaide of Savoy in 1664 to celebrate the birth of their son. It was Agostino Barelli who initially undertook the design and construction of the palace. However, it was later renovated and expanded.

The palace consists of the main villa and two wings: north and south. The most popular room in the building is, without doubt, Schönheitengalerie (Gallery of Beauties), located in the south wing. In this room you can see all 36 portraits of beautiful women which were picked by King Ludwig I for the paintings.

In the third hall, also in the south wing, you can see King Ludwig’s collection of coaches and riding equipment.

If you are travelling with young children, you should visit Museum Mensch und Natur (Museum of Humankind & Nature), which is an interactive museum with displays on the animal kingdom and the human body.
