  Schloss Nymphenburg
by Paul2001

The Schloss Nymphenburg is the finest Baroque palace in Bavaria. Designed in the manner of an Italian villa, the palace was begun in 1664 by Elector Ferdinard Maria. Like so many such palaces, there have numerous additions over the years so that the building that you see today actually was not completed for 150 years after it was begun.
The interior of the palace seems rather overdone in the rococo style but should thrill fans of this sort of design just the same. Most of the frescos deal with Greek mythology. I personally was more pleased with the grounds outside of the museum. Actually a park that spans over an area 500 acres in size, it has canals, English gardens and several interesting pavilions that you can explore on a guided tour. I enjoyed wandering around the park until it decided to rain on me.
The Schloss is open from 9am to 6pm daily except for Thursday when it is open until 8pm. The admission price is 7.50 Euros

Address: Schloss Nymphenburg 1
Directions: 8 km northwest of the city centre. I reached it by U-bahn to Rothreuzplatz and then took Tram #17.
