Nymphenburg-palace - WOC layover tips

The Nymphenburg Palace i. e., “Castle of the Nymph (or Nymphs)”, is a Baroque palace in Munich, Bavaria, southern Germany. The palace is the main summer residence of the former rulers of Bavaria of the House of Wittelsbach. This commanding palace and its lavish gardens sprawl around 5km northwest of the Altstadt. Begun in 1664 as a villa for Electress Adelaide of Savoy, the stately pile was extended over the next century to create the royal family’s summer residence.

Englischer Garten

If you are in the mood for a relaxed day and a picnic, visit the Englischer Garten and walk through that in to town. It’s about an hour walk to the center of Munich and it’s a beautiful park. There are a lot of stands where you can stop, sit down in the sun and try beer and different sausages. If its a good sunny day it’s crowded with people and they have live music as well!

Bayerisches National Museum

Picture the classic 19th-century museum, a palatial neoclassical edifice overflowing with exotic treasure and thought-provoking works of art, a repository for a nation’s history, a grand purpose-built display case for royal trinkets, church baubles and state-owned rarities – this is the Bavarian National Museum, a good old-fashioned institution for no-nonsense museum lovers.

Food and Entertainment in Munich


This wonderfully characterful inn is perfect for exploring the region with a fork. The menu is a seasonally adapted checklist of southern German favourites but also features at least a dozen vegetarian dishes and the odd exotic ingredient.

Wirtshaus in der Au

This Bavarian tavern’s simple slogan is ‘Beer and dumplings since 1901’, and it’s that time-honoured staple (the dumpling) that’s the speciality here (the tavern even runs a dumpling-making course in English).


Is it a junk shop, a cafe or a sewing shop? Well, Westend’s oddest coffeehouse is in fact all three, and everything you see in this converted haberdashery – the knickknacks, the cakes and the antique chair you’re sitting on – is for sale.

Münchner Philharmoniker

Munich’s premier orchestra regularly performs at the Gasteig Cultural Centre. Book tickets early, as performances usually sell out.

Bayerische Staatsoper

One of the world’s best opera companies, the Bavarian State Opera performs to sell-out crowds at the National Theater in the Residenz and puts the emphasis on Mozart, Strauss and Wagner.

Shopping in Munich


The famous cloth producer stocks a wide range of Bavarian wear and other top-end clothes. The Lederhosen and Dirndl outfits are a cut above the discount night-out versions and prices are accordingly high.

7 Himmel

Women will be in seventh heaven when browsing the assortment of fashions and accessories by hip indie labels sold at surprisingly reasonable prices.

Stachus Passagen

Visit Europe’s biggest underground shopping mall, with 36 escalators and 250,000 shoppers a day wandering its 58 mainstream shops.
