Munchen (Munich), Bavaria (3) – Schloss Nymphenburg Exterior (Day Eight)

In 1664, following the birth of the heir to the throne, Max Emanuel and wife Henriette Adelaide commissioned the architect Agostino Barelli to build Nymphenburg Palace.  This incredible palace had so much to offer that I have to break it up into six separate posts.


In 1701, the side galleries and residential pavilions were added.



Four winged complexes were added on each side in 1715
