Nymphenburg Palace ("Schloss Nymphenburg" in German) is a Baroque palace built between 1664 and 1675. It was the main summer residence of the Bavarian of the House of Wittelsbach.
The exterior and expansive grounds are very impressive, more so than the interior, but it's still worth a visit. You can purchase a combination ticket that also includes entrance to the Marstallmuseum (carriages and sleighs) and to the Museum of Nymphenburg Porcelain which are both on the palace grounds.

When in Munich, enjoy the excellent food but also plan on seeing the Numphenburg Palace. This often overlooked European palace can be found on the outskirts of Munich in southern Germany. It's a stunning palace that will transport you into a fantasy and fuel any imagination.
The 17th century palace was a royal residence of the Bavarian monarchy for years and is amazing in its beauty. But for some reason it doesn't get the same press as Versailles near Paris or Buckingham Palace in London.
The grounds of the Nymphenburg Palace are vast so there is a great opportunity to stroll around for an hour or more. One place that you may come across is the small unusual chapel tucked away on the grounds.
