Nymphenburg Palace Park
Nymphenburg Palace park is one of the largest and most important examples of landscape design in Germany. The park and gardens are protected as a national monument and a conservation area. To the east, the park finishes at the part of Nymphenburg Palace that looks towards the city, including the Schlossrondell or “grand circle”. On all other sides it is mostly enclosed within a historic garden wall. The Botanical Garden borders it to the north, with Menzinger Street and the Kapuzinerhölzl wood behind it. Within the wall, the park covers an area of around 180 hectares. The total area of the Nymphenburg complex encompasses around 229 hectares and includes the Rondell and the city side of the canal and the green spaces to the west of the wall.
