Nymphenburg Palace in Munich

I am way behind on getting these posted. We went to this palace while my mom was here.

This is the bed King Ludwig II was born in. He later went on to build the Neushwanstien and Hohenschwangau Castles in southern Bavaria.
These are from the back side of the palace. There is a large, gorgeous garden behind the palace with statues and streams.
It rained on us even though there wasn't any rain in the forecast that day. And it would downpour then stop long enough for us to get to our next location then start again. Macen's favorite part of the palace was watching the ducks, swans and geese.


There were several smaller "palaces" away from the main palace to tour. This one was all carriages. They were pretty amazing. The carriages ranged from simple to elegant to what I would consider too much. Kinda like the middle pic.


This was a separate palace on the grounds and this room was made entirely of shells. It was beautiful! I can't imagine how much time it took to create a room like this. You could look for hours to see all the detail.
