Schloss Nymphenburg, Munich
You can get the park by going behind the castle. Feel free to enter as it is free. It is a great place to walk around and also have a rest. If you have your own light meal, it is the place to make a stop and enjoy your snack in a hot summer day. Take a sit on those benches under the trees.
Fondest memory: I like Munich parks!
... before I went to Munich I looked at several Munich pages on VT. Mostly there were pictures with swans on it. So for me now swans are synonymous to Schloss Nymphenburg.
And guess what my first picture at the Schloss was? Of course a swan!
The Nymphenburg Palace is one of Europe's biggest royal palaces. Surrounded by a huge baroque garden and landscaped park, with flowers, fountains, lakes and other small palaces.
This masterpiece of Baroque architecture was built in the 17th century and was home to many of the Bavarian royals.
Go see Nymphenburg Castle. It has beautiful gardens and all you want to say is, 'it's good to be the king'. I am not sure if a king lived there but some really rich guy did with awesome taste in architecture, and there's even an entire room with nothing but paintings of lovely women (probably all his dates). It's next to the Munich Botanical Gardens and you can spend a wonderful day seeing both.
Fondest memory: Catching a Picasso exhibit the we happened to come upon and shopping for anything made with hazelnuts. We were with friends who live there so we got to eat at out of the way places. The best Greek food I ever ate was in Munich. Imagine that!
Fondest memory: It's a wonderful castle, which you can visit inside or just walk through the wonderful big castle park. Beside of this park is a botanical garden, which is by itself already worth a visit.
Favorite thing: We visited this castle while we were in Munich, but just quickly...we didn't get a chance to go inside. Nymphenburg Palace was one of Ludwig's many homes...
