The cafe is hosted in the “Palmenhaus”, an old former green house of the neighboring royal Bavarian court “Schloss Nymphenburg“. Together with its park-style terrace, Schlosscafe is a beautiful indoor & outdoor spot which is ideal to relax after a long sightseeing tour.
REALLY OLD SCHOOL: The historic interior has been well kept, dedicated to the glory times in the early 1800s when (the later Austrian empress) Sissi, or King Ludwig II lived here at Nymphenburg castle. Today the day cafe & restaurant is famous for its coffees & cakes, which taste great in such an inspiring atmosphere.
A HOT TIP: Visit the Munich Botanic Gardens behind the Schlosscafe. They have 22 hectares of Gardens and greenhouses (with a total space of 4500 square meters!). Also hosted in the park area, the museum “Mensch und Natur” presents an interesting and entertaining approach to natural science.
If you plan to spend a sporty afternoon, expand your walk into the huge green heart of the “Schlosspark Nymphenburg” with lakes and a large forest which still is a part of the Munich city area. Tired now? Tram line 17 brings you back into the city centre.
