Nymphenburg Palace 1

Our return flight from Bavaria to the UK wasn’t until the evening, so we decided to spend a few hours at the magnificent Nymphenburg Palace which is conveniently situated on the Western outskirts of Munich on our route back to the airport.

Schloss Nymphenburg started life in 1664 as a modest villa, but over the next century or so it developed into the summer residence of the Wittelsbach’s, the ruling family of Bavaria. The Baroque masterpiece we see today sits about 5km from the centre of Munich surrounded by lavish gardens and parkland. The shots below are all taken from the front of the building as we approached the main entrance:
