This is a very large Palace, the summer home of the Bavarian electors and kings, approx 20 minute tram ride from the centre of Munich. The Palace is extensive, still in good condition and has some beautiful rooms. However the visit is not restricted to the palace, there is a well treed parkland with hunting lodge ( Amalienburg) which is a 20 minute walk, most enjoyable on a hot day as the paths are shaded. Further on is the Ladies Bathhouse (Badenburg) which is well worth a look. It contains a very deep indoor heated swimming pool, and for the 19th century this would be rare. The supervisor explained how the water was heated, the engineering was well advanced for the time.

You should visit the Marstallmuseum which is a large building containing the royal coaches, horses, weapons, paintings etc from the period. The coaches alone are worth the visit.

Admission tickets can be bought for the complete attraction or specific sights, eg the Palace. We bought the complete package and were there over 3 hours, cost Euro 20 per adult for all attractions, less if you do not take full package.

See my Munich page for Travelogue on this Palace, many photos
