Nymphenburg Palace

There's a summer place…

Out west of central Munich in the Neuhauser district, the summer palace of the Wittelsbach rulers of Bavaria is an amazing Baroque pile designed by Italian Agostino Barelli, also architect of the Theatine Church. It was inaugurated in 1664 during the reign of Ferdinand Maria of Bavaria and his wife Henriette Adelaide of Savoy. The estate was originally not as enormous as it later became - it was renovated and enlarged up until the early 19th century, when the spectacular formal gardens were renovated and enlarged. One highlight within the palace is the Carriage Museum, with all the splendid conveyances which hauled the royal family around from the 17th century onward.
