Taking pictures for private use (only with the usual hand-held cameras and without light and tripod etc.) does not require a permit. We regret that wedding shootings inside are not possible. Photo and film shootings taken for further use as well as the flying of drones / multicopters are basically subject to approval and charges. Here you will find information on photography permits / film permits.


Free wi-fi is available in the cash desk area of Nymphenburg Palace and at the Cour d’honneur.
