Dachau Palace

Picture: Dachau Palace

Dachau Palace originated as a high medieval castle belonging to the Counts of Dachau. Under Duke Wilhelm IV and his son Duke Albrecht V it was transformed into a massive four-winged complex by the Munich court architects Heinrich Schöttl and Wilhelm Egkl (1546 to 1577).

Hall with wooden Renaissance ceiling

The magnificent wooden Renaissance ceiling in the hall, one of the most important in Southern Germany, dates from this time. At the beginning of the 19th century, three-quarters of the complex was demolished, leaving only the hall section facing the court garden, which had been redesigned in the Baroque style under Max Emanuel from 1715 to 1717.
