Nymphenburg Palace Grounds {Munich, Germany}

This summer we had the chance to spend a few hours roaming around the grounds of the Nymphenburg Palace in Munich, Germany. We had every intention of touring the inside of the palace too, but time escaped us as we became lost in the beauty on the outside. We are planning a trip back to Munich in the near future to get to see the inside of the palace as well. Below is an arieal view of the grounds – easy to see why we never got around to going on the inside!

Nymphenburg Palace was built as a summer residence for Bavarian Elector Ferdinand Maria and his wife, Henriette Adelaide of Savoy, in anticipation of the birth of their long awaited heir – Max Emanuel. There are several beautiful areas on the grounds, including the gardens, 4 mini-palaces {Amalienburg, Badenburg,  Pagodenburg, Magdalenenklause}, and a museum of royal carriages! We hope you’ll enjoy your tour and hope to see you again tomorrow to see where day 7 will take you!


In the gardens there were a lot of statues. The boys were having a hay day playing “tag” around them while big sis, hubby, and I were reading all about them. It is a very beautiful, well appointed pathway right off of the palace itself.

My absolute favorite palace on the Nymphenburg grounds was the Pagodenburg. I loved the Chinese influence of the drawing room {blue and white photos below} and the luxury and rich colors of the sleeping room. I would certainly stay here for a night  as a royal guest!

The trails in between each palace and section of the garden were magical! We all enjoyed exploring them and the children in particular spent lots of time playing in the woods!

 Here is my second favorite palace on the grounds, the Magdaleneklause Palace! It was decorated so beautifully with all sorts of sea shells, I had never seen anything like it before! Pure majesty!

Here are a few photos of the family {minus me because I am taking them} with the Palace in the back. We look forward to going INSIDE next time!
