2 NYMPHENBURG PALACE

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

Take a 10-minute taxi ride south­west and ar­rive at Nymphenburg Palace. Com­pleted in 1675, the build­ing was a gift from Prince Fer­di­nand Maria to his wife. The com­plex was a fa­vorite sum­mer res­i­dence for the rulers of Bavaria, and later – up to the present day – a home for the House of Wit­tels­bach. In­side the palace, some spa­ces have their orig­i­nal Baroque decor in­tact. Many or­nate rooms are open for vis­i­tors, in­clud­ing the Stone Hall, the Queen’s bed­room (birth­place of King Lud­wig II) and King Lud­wig I’s Gallery of Beau­ties, dis­play­ing por­traits of 36 beau­ti­ful women from all walks of life at the time, and all with sto­ries to tell. Don’t get too close to the swans in the small pond out­side the palace; they may look ma­jes­tic but they’re also ter­ri­to­rial. Open daily 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM from April 1 to Oct. 15; 10: 00 AM – 4:00 PM from Oct. 16 to March 31; Reg­u­lar ticket € 6 ($6.85); Schloss Nymphenburg 1, 80638 München;
