The art inside this building dates from the 1500's and while mostly relating to the life of Christ is very interesting and well maintained, some obviously have been restored, but it is well worth seeing. the main "ballroom" is absolutely stunning with golden framework, ceiling paintings, candelabras....just stunning.

The Palais along Maximilianstrasse was built around 1770, and it has a very nice garden, a long row of rooms with paintings, before you arrive in the banquet hall, it is just fantastic, well worth a visit. They have many concerts here, please attend if possible, the atmosphere with a small group of musicians playing music 2-300 years old is... More

It really surprise us that we are allowed to take as many pictures as we want inside. It's really a good place for photo lovers especially at the hall. We were also surprise that the entrance fee was only EUR1 unlike what we've learnt from our travel book.

If you just visit the big hall, that could be already enough. It is simple bueatiful, beetwen baroque and rococo styles. But there are a lot more, German paintings, including Dürer Fugger portrait. It is worth to visit.

for 7 euros I think it was too expensive, so many more stunning places in Munich to see, so I would not take a special trip to see this place. If you are in town maybe have a look but I would not rate it highly

This Museum has an interesting collection of paintings,particularly early German paintings including a stunning portrait of Fugger by Durer. The Roccoco hall currently holds a surprise that I'll let you discover by yourself. Very few explanations in English however.

The name for a palace seemed to me a misleading term. I was searching for a palace of a stately looking structure. With that in my mind, I missed this seemed rather ordinary humble looking white building twice, probably because the front of the building was fenced off for the surface repair. Finally I saw a wall plaque that identified... More

We liked this gallery which has some good paintings . The centrepiece is the mirrored gilded ballroom which was exhibiting a modern installation on a bed of ceramic cherries. We loved the old nunnery with its high ceilings where we saw the Durer painting of Jacob Fugger and some fine religious scenes by Holbein the Elder. The audio guide though... More

After hearing about the treasures in a magnificent baroque palace very near our hotel, we decided to invest part of our Saturday in Augsburg there. The first disappointment was not being able to buy the tickets with our credit card – another sign that those in charge of some tourist attractions in Germany are still very provincial. We opted for... More

This is a marvel directly from the time of Maria Antoinette, never reconstructed and in excellent shape. Today an top art-gallery. Do not miss the Dürer paintings after the ball hall!
