Interesting art display, nice rooms to look at - rokokosaal is lurid and a shock to see after the dark walls. Free entrance into the church next door.

This palace is something to be seen. From the outside you would not know what awaits you on the inside. Ask for the audio guide or personal guide to get all the details about the palace and it’s rooms.

I agree with all the positive reviews and won't go further into describing the museum. The palace rooms were delightful to see and nicely curated. The Deutsche Barockgalerie (German Baroque Gallery) features 17th and 18th century art work. There is practically no English information regarding...More

Called in to see the collection of German paintings but had the added delights of the architecture of the palace as well. The baroque section not as interesting as the other earlier works but some excellent portraits. The Cranach, Holbein, and Durer make it a...More

beautiful building with a lot of rooms and paintings. On the 2nd floor there was a very interesting temporary exhibition about Russia. I would highly recommend to visit.

If you want to see as many Rococo masterpieces as possible, don't miss the ballroom at this palace. The rest is mostly mediocre art except for a nice Durer portrait. The ballroom makes it all worthwhile if you appreciate the style.

Great palace to visit. The enormous banquet hall lavishly decorated. Some good painting on second floor.
