Nymphenburg Palace Tour



Nymphenburg Palace

Map: Nymphenburg

For 200 years, this oasis of palaces and gardens was the Wittelsbach rulers’ summer vacation home, a getaway from the sniping politics of court life in the city. Their kids could frolic in the gardens while the adults played cards, listened to music, or sipped coffee on the veranda.

Today, Nymphenburg Palace and the surrounding one-square-mile park are a great place for a royal stroll or discreet picnic. Indoors, you can tour the Bavarian royal family’s summer quarters, visit the Royal Stables Museum (carriages, sleighs, and porcelain), and browse a few mini-palaces on the grounds. Allow at least three hours (including travel time) to see the palace complex at a leisurely pace.


Cost: Palace—€6; combo-ticket—€11.50 (€8.50 off-season) covers the palace, Royal Stables Museum, and outlying sights.

Hours: All of these sights are open daily 9:00-18:00, mid-Oct-March 10:00-16:00—except for Amalienburg and the other small palaces in the park, which are closed in winter; park open daily 6:00-dusk and free to enter.

About the Author

Since 1973, Rick Steves has spent about four months a year exploring Europe. His mission: to empower Americans to have European trips that are fun, affordable, and culturally broadening. Rick produces a best-selling guidebook series, a public television series, and a public radio show, and organizes small-group tours that take over 30,000 travelers to Europe annually.  He does all of this with the help of more than 100 well-traveled staff members at Rick Steves’ Europe in Edmonds, WA (near Seattle). When not on the road, Rick is active in his church and with advocacy groups focused on economic and social justice, drug policy reform, and ending hunger. To recharge, Rick plays piano, relaxes at his family cabin in the Cascade Mountains, and spends time with his son Andy and daughter Jackie.
