    The inside is like not many to compare. It has a huge staircase that leads to the second level, which is the grand hall and very large paintings. This is of that grand hall that was used for banquets and events. The style of ceilings is mostly Rococo and has much plastered decor.

  • Altes Schloss - overview

    The Altes Schloss (Old Castle) was erected by Duke Wilhelm V of the family Wittelsbach between 1597 and 1616. It is very beautiful outside, but it is even more interesting inside, where you can visit a museum about Preußen (Prussia) as well as an exhibition of cribs from all over the world. I don't know if this exhibition was temporary or if it is...

    The museum of aeronautics is located near to Neues Schloss. The museum is a branch of the German museum. Old planes, restoration workshops are presented in the museum. Sometimes it is possible to observe flights of retro models.

  • Altes Schloss - museum: Königsberg

    I'm almost sure that this painting portrays Königsberg, but it could also represent Danzig (see previous tip).Königsberg was one of the most important, if not the most important Prussian cities, especially from the cultural point of view. Many Germans will be proud to tell you that it is there that philosopher of the Enlightenment Immanuel Kant was...

  • Altes Schloss - museum: Danzig

    Danzig (today Gdañsk in Polska) lied on the "Amber way" and was the most important city of Preußen at the time of the biggest extension of this kingdom, under Friedrich II Hohenzollern.These photos show a bottle of liqueur from Danzig, local banknotes, the city coat of arms and a painting. I'm almost sure that it portrays Danzig, since the water...

  • Neues Schloss - the end

    My visit to Oberschleißheim is coming to its end, but let's have a look at the last Italian paintings before exiting through the many doors you see here.Auf Wiedersehen, good-bye, Oberschleißheim. I will come back one day, because I still have to visit the Schloss Lustheim!

  • Neues Schloss - Staatsgalerie (Italian...

    Here are the most beautiful paintings of the gallery, in my opinion. I don't think that because they are Italian, but because I really liked them.Most (or all?) of the paintings shown in this and in the next tip are by the brothers Carracci, Italian baroque painters who foreran the dramatic baroque of Michelangelo Merisi, called the Caravaggio.

  • Neues Schloss - Staatsgalerie and chapel

    Let's continue visiting the gallery. Look at the ceiling and the little chapel before passing to the next tip.

  • Neues Schloss - the imperial rooms

    While visiting the Staatsgalerie, you pass through the imperial rooms, so take some time to admire them. These pics show the Emperor's bed and studio, a painting by Velázquez (one of the many paintings portraying the Emperors' children; you can see more in the Museo del Prado in Madrid) and the Empress's bed.

  • Neues Schloss - Staatsgalerie: Flemish...

    The Staatsgalerie begins with a significative collection of Flemish paintings. You can easily guess that because the Flemish were famous painters of interiors and their portraits of art collectors with their collections are very known.Still, I don't think this is the most beautiful part of the collection. Go on reading!

  • Neues Schloss - the Großer Saal

    The Großer Saal, the party hall located at the beginning of the Staatsgalerie (State Gallery), is the apotheosis of the German baroque. Paintings of battles by Franz Joachin Beich are hung on the walls and the ceiling is embellished with a big fresco by Jacopo Amigoni, The duel of Turnus and Aeneas (1721).

    Please, have a break with the exhibition and admire the rooms and the furniture, such as this nice fireplace: on the top it is written in gold "MAXIMILIANVS BAV(IERÆ): DUX S(ACRI):R(OMANI):I(MPERII): ELECTOR", that is approximately "Maximilian Duke of Bayern, Elector of the Sacre Roman Empire". You may know that the elector-princes were those who...

Oberschleißheim Off The Beaten Path

  • Schloss-park ducks

    Numerous waterfowl have rendered habitable palace channels. This duck was very dissatisfied with occurrence of our dog. It expressed the discontent with loud quacking.

  • Palace auxiliary buildings

    Palace auxiliary buildings also look as palaces. The tower with the nice clocks attracts attention. Buildings look even inhabited.

  • Ehem. Pferdestall - Stable

    The stable enters into a complex of palace constructions and itself looks like a palace. Firstly we thought that it was a palace, but later we understood our mistake examining a plan of the park.

  • Kuznetsov_Sergey's Profile Photo

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Jan 19, 2013

    Favorite thing: We got an opportunity to visit Oberschleissheim in August of 2004. It was a trip to the German Shepherd Bundessiegerzuchtschau in Karlsruhe with our Asslan v Haus Schiran. It was our sixth trip to Germany with Asslan and I planned that trip with two nights near Munchen to see its sights.
    Oberschleissheim attracted my choice because it is close to Munchen.
    That’s why we can tell that thank to Asslan we visited Oberschleissheim.
    Our visits in many European cities have never happened if our dog Asslan v Haus Schiran and his participating in dog-shows in Germany.

    We took Asslan to Munchen for our first excursion and he was with us the whole day. The day before we had a long excursion along Nurnberg and Asslan hurt his legs because he wasn't used for long walks along asfalt pavings. That’s why he was tired at the end of the day and we didn’t take him to Munchen next day leaving him in the hotel in Oberschleissheim.
    But we took him in the Oberschleissheim park where he looked very tired.

    You can watch my 2 min 15 sec Video Asslan v Haus Schiran in Oberschleissheim Park out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.

    and my 23 sec Video Asslan v Haus Schiran in Zum Kurfurst hotel in Oberschleissheim out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.
