To call this palace beautiful is probably an understatement. The interiors and the grounds are gorgeous. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The number 17 tram from the centre of Munich stops right outside the gates.

We spent two hours here. Arrived via gray line hop on off bus. We purchased a combination ticket. This only covers part of the displays. This was not made clear or I am stupid. The coach section was amazing. The porcelain section was beautiful but unfortunately most of the written information was in German. In retrospect I would suggest the... More

The castle is huge and my favourite room was the Great Hall. Could have stayed there for hours. We paid for the commentary but it's actually not necessary as the info boards in each room give you enough information. The cafe is well worth a visit there too. You'll need around 2 hours for this attraction unless you want to... More

I could possibly spend a week here at Nymphenburg and still want more. The Palace and Coach Museum are both worth seeing. Just strolling the park is relaxing and beautiful. There is no charge for access to the park.

We didn't go inside but the area outside was a good walk and visually appealing. Can walk the park without admission

This place is great for a nice walk and to see the gardens, but over all it was very similar to Schönbrunn in Vienna which has nicer winter gardens and more to see outside.

Easy to reach from town center. Huge area for walking around. The palace is like all others in Europe, worth visiting.

King Ludwig had a stunning home. It was lovely visiting this Palace in Winter but I can imagine how much prettier it would be in Spring/Summer. The Palace itself is breathtaking - it also has Carriage Museum that will blow your mind! The homes that surround the Palace are simply beautiful as well. Worth visiting. A must see.

Disappointing that the palace is not open during the winter, and even the café is closed on Mondays! So we can't comment on the interior, and on a winter's day the palace presents itself as rather drab and uninteresting. Much of the garden ornamentation is covered over during winter, to protect from frost and there is no winter planting in... More

The grounds are expansive and very peaceful, with many gardens and ponds. The interior is also extravagant and gives insight into how royalty lived. The self-directed audio tour is well done. We had the benefit of traveling off season in October so crowds were sparse.
