Palaces and Castles in Munich

Palaces and Castles in Munich

  • Schloss Nymphenburg is in Neuhausen & Nymphenburg. Baroque palace that was the summer residence of the rulers of Bavaria. Also the 8,000-seat Hirschgarten beer garden is just around the corner.
  • Residenz is in the City Center, near to Marienplatz. Built in 1385, the Residenz was originally a small moated castle, and was gradually expanded by the Wittelsbach rulers who used it until 1918 as their residence and seat of government.
  • Schloss Schleißheim ? Not really in Munich, but you can take the S1 S-Bahn to Oberschleißheim to get there. A jewel of Baroque architechture. Built during the reign of Elector Max Emanuel, it was intended as a Royal residence, though the Elector himself was forced into exile and never lived here. Building work begun in 1701 by Zuccalli and continued between 1719-26 by Joseph Effner the Younger. French architectural features are evident in the facade and the most impressive rooms are the Große Saal, the Viktoriensaal and the Große Galerie. Worth noting is a terrific 980-seat beer garden, Schlosswirtschaft Oberschleissheim, literally on the palace grounds.
  • Schloss Dachau ? Also not in Munich. You might visit Dachau on your excursion to the concentration camp memorial anyway. Don't miss the opportunity to also check out the historic city center and the castle overlooking the area, with a nice view of Munich from the distance, and a small but beautiful flower garden. The people of Dachau will be grateful if you'll remember their town not only for the concentration camp that Hitler had built here.
