Nymphenburg Palace – Munich

Picture: Nymphenburg Palace

To celebrate the birth of their son and heir, Elector Ferdinand Maria and his consort Henriette Adelaide of Savoy appointed architect Agostino Barelli to build them a summer residence west of Munich. The simple cube-shaped building, begun in 1664, was enlarged under Max Emanuel and Karl Albrecht from plans by Henrico Zuccalli and Joseph Effner.

The massive Great Hall ("Steinerner Saal") was decorated in the Rococo style by Johann Baptist Zimmermann and François Cuvilliés the Elder under Elector Max III Joseph. A famous feature of the palace is the "Gallery of Beauties", painted for King Ludwig I by Joseph Stieler.
