People say this palace is reminiscent of Versailles. Its actually the other way around. Schloss Nymphenburg was built in 1664 about 20 years before Versailles. It was the summer residence to the birth of the long-awaited heir to the throne, Max Emanuel, who was born in 1662 to the Bavarian Elector Ferdinand Maria and his wife.
You can take the subway from Munich directly to the castle. The building is magnificent and although the gardens are not as large as Versailles they are beautiful and well managed.
