Nymphenburg Palace – Munich

Picture: Nymphenburg Palace

With its unique combination of architecture and garden design, Nymphenburg is one of the best examples in Europe of a synthesis of the arts. Following the birth of the heir to the throne, Max Emanuel, Elector Ferdinand Maria and his consort commissioned the architect Agostino Barelli to build Nymphenburg Palace, which was begun in 1664.

Great Hall ("Steinerner Saal")

During the reign of Max Emanuel the complex was extended with side galleries and residential buildings designed in 1701 by Henrico Zuccalli. From 1714, under the direction of Joseph Effner, the adjacent four-winged buildings were completed and the façade of the central building was modernized in the French style: the private country house was now an extensive summer residence of absolutist proportions.

Max Emanuel’s successor, Elector Karl Albrecht, completed the complex on the city side with the Rondell buildings. The interior rooms present exhibitions and works of art from the Baroque period to Classicism. The tour of the palace also includes a look at the room in which King Ludwig II of Bavaria was born. Another highlight is the world-famous "Gallery of Beauties", with portraits commissioned by King Ludwig I.
