Nymphenburg Palace was built as a summer residence for Bavarian kings. It is a magnificent structure artistically shaped by the various Electors over its history. Exhibiting both baroque and rococo styles, the rooms are decorated with fantastic frescos and tapestries. The massive Great Hall was decorated in the Rococo style by Johann Baptist Zimmermann and François Cuvilliés the Elder under Elector Max III Joseph. A famous feature of the palace is the “Gallery of Beauties”, painted for King Ludwig I by Joseph Stieler. The 200-hectare park surrounding the palace is an attraction of its own with the canal and reflecting pool before the entrance which runs to a cascade at the far end of the gardens. This a popular recreation spot in Munich and it is quite relaxing to have a picnic by the water with the swans and ducks, and there are many hidden treasures within the park.
