What a view, lovely garden and free. The views are spectacular. I can only imagine when the gardens are in full bloom that it's a really pleasant place to be.

It usually accommodates various cultural shows throughout the year. The schedule is available on palace website and also on the town website. The garden is huge and it is amazing... More

It is a welcome change after a sombre visit to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial. It offers a totally different scenery. From the hilltop, you can see the picturesque town of Dachau and nearby Munich beautifully. The sweet smell of flowers lingers on in your memories even after leaving the town.

On the hill this stately manor is beautifully situated. There is a nice restaurant inside. Next door there is a lovely garden from which you have a nice view over the city of Dachau and the hinterland.

Although the gardens are nice the palace itself is very small and really not worth the effort of visiting.

We came here after the concentration camp visit and lunch so it was nice to see something beautiful. The palace was actually closed but the outside was lovely and well kept. It's on a hill so the views from the palace are awesome! If you go around the back or side of the house, you'll see a lovely garden with... More

We walked up the cobbled street to the Palace from the town in about ten minutes. It is one of the former residences of the Munich Court redesigned in the 18th Century. It has lovely gardens with flowers and apple trees and there are far reaching views of Munich from the Terrace. It's worth the steep walk!

Beautiful garden with lots of roses, various flowers and fruit trees. Great views overlooking the city. You can see Munich! Very tranquil and great to cap off the concentration camp visit.

My vote is before. Originally a medieval castle belonging to the local count, this transferred to the Munich court in 1546. Most interesting feature is the Renaissance ceiling, one of the most important in Southern Germany.
