    The main room was the most impressive interior we saw in Munich. So gorgeous and breath taking. We had a great time walking around the grounds and seeing the other buildings on the property.

    Huge castle and park, very popular with tourists. The main area is always quite crowded in the summer. The grounds are well maintained and worth visiting. Giving a proper look into the history of Bavarian kings and royalty. Recommended! Good for jogging. Wild animals such as deer, ducks, geese, etc. so not too good for walking with dogs. Cycling forbidden.

    We visited on such a gloomy winter day so it wasn't as pretty. The yard was spacious but the palace itself was just a quick tour. We had more fun swan watching than the actual tour inside. This place was awesome!

    This is amazing and very big palace in München, it was light raining in start which become snowfall after few minutes so we enjoyed the view of turning green into white. inside this palace is very beautiful and can't be explained in words or pictures, walking inside will take you in history. i will appreciate palace management who preserved history very carefully. closing time in winter 4:00 PM. i am not sure about other season but if you want explore whole palace you better be there in morning. gladly well organize public transport system of München you can go there by Tram and bus.

    This is a historic site. The gardens are beautiful. Great place to have a stroll or even jog through. Entrance to the gardens is free but you have to pay to enter the castle. There's a souvenir shop present. There are a few restaurants nearby. Cool place to take pictures.
