Nymphenburg, literally the castle of the Nymph, is one of the most interesting attractions of Munich. Until 1918, it was one of the summer residences of the Wittelsbachs, after having been the summer residence of the monarchs of Bavaria. Built in Baroque style, it has had many transformations and expansions but still preserves elements of the original style. The castle is surrounded by a large park of about 200 hectares divided in two by an artificial waterway on which the sides open up to two lakes. In the park there are various wings: the Badenburg, in baroque style with a heated pool inside, the Magdalenenklause a cave containing a chapel and the temple of Apollo, in neoclassical style.
The Nymphenburg Palace is a beautiful Baroque palace which is in Munchen and was the summer residence of the Bavaria rulers. This historic building was built from 1664 to 1758. There is a two storey dining hall which is decorated... more with beautiful frescoes, a Heraldic room, and a room which is stuffed with Gobelin tapestries and a Chinese Lacquer Room. The Palace along with the park are vital economic factors for Munich.
