    The good Schleissheim Palace.
    Well ... More like 1 of 3.
    The Schleißheim palace complex has 3 castles:
    - The old Schleissheim Palace
    - The new Schleissheim Palace
    - Lustheim Palace.

    The founding of the Schleißheim palace complex goes back to Duke Wilhelm V of Bavaria (lived 1548-1626), who in 1597 was able to negotiate the Schwaige Schleissheim, located in a lonely moorland, with its Margaret Chapel from the Freising Cathedral Chapter for a large sum.
    The Schleissheimer Park, both from Lustheim and from the New Palace, strictly and consciously related to the buildings, is one of the most important European baroque gardens. Following the example of the Netherlands at the beginning, the French gardening specialist and hydraulic engineer Dominique Girard expanded the garden to include the large ground floor in the style of French baroque gardening. With his broderies, the water areas, the fountains and the cascade, he succeeded in creating an overall design that is second to none and has been preserved in the main to this day almost unchanged.
    The ensemble of the New Palace, the Old Palace, the Lustheim Palace and the extensive baroque gardens impressively showcase court architecture and garden art from the 17th and 18th centuries.

    The Schleißheim palace complex is located in the municipality of Oberschleißheim in the Munich district. It is a complex of three individual palace buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, which are axially connected to one another by a spacious garden. The area includes the Old Schleissheim Palace to the west, the neighboring New Schleissheim Palace and the Lustheim Palace at the east end of the park. The ensemble of buildings was built by the Bavarian electors as a summer residence, but the complex remained unfinished.

    Along with Nymphenburg Palace, Schleissheim is one of the largest residences in the Munich area and one of the most important baroque complexes in Germany. The palace complex is part of the Bavarian Administration of State Palaces, Gardens and Lakes. All three castles and the park can be visited. In addition to the historical sequence of rooms, changing exhibitions are shown in the old castle, the Lustheim castle houses the Meißen porcelain collection Ernst Schneider Foundation. The New Palace serves as the baroque gallery of the Bavarian State Painting Collections.

    Schleißheim Palace seduces with its picturesque gardens to a detour and be amazed. Thanks to the guided tour, the beer garden and the huge garden, the castle invites you to linger a while longer and is definitely worth a detour.

    Visit the castles with admission (€ 10 for all three), admission to the park is free, but not for nothing: a baroque garden with fountains and lots of green areas surrounded by hedges, ideal for a picnic. Cycling in the garden is not allowed.
