The good life in the 17th century
A vast and sprawling baroque palace built by Italian architect Agostino Barelli (1627–87) as a gift for Duke Ferdinand Maria to give to his wife following the birth of their son, Nymphenburg remains terrifically popular with locals and tourists. Adding greatly to its appeal is the attached 490-acre park, with formal French gardens and 18th-century distractions such as the octagonal Pagodenburg pavilion, the folly Magdalenenklause and the must-see jewel-like rococo hunting lodge Amalienburg. Plus Leo von Klenze's 19th-century neoclassical Apollotemple.
