Information for visitors

Opening hours

The restoration work in the castle is making progress.

The Queen's study (Room 16) and the adjoining small lady-in-waiting's chamber (Room 17) in the Southern Pavilion of Nymphenburg Palace will unfortunately have to remain closed to visitors until mid-2020 due to restoration work.

Due to the ongoing restoration work in the Salon / King Ludwig I's Gallery of Beauties (Room 15), the 36 paintings are currently being presented in the adjacent Small Gallery (Room 18). Individual paintings may be temporarily removed for restoration.

The portrait of Lola Montez and two other beauties can be seen from 5.12.2019 to 1.3.2020 in the exhibition "Ludwig, Lola und Legenden – Schönheiten zu Gast im Schloss" in Johannisburg Palace in Aschaffenburg.

We ask for your understanding for the restrictions.
