Neuhausen-Nymphenburg, Munich (district)

Neuhausen-Nymphenburg is an urban district number 9 in Munich, located in the northwestern part of the city.

The present-day district of Neuhausen-Nymphenburg was formed in 1992 by the merger of two separate districts: Neuhausen and Nymphenburg.

Currently, Neuhausen-Nymphenburg is a well-developed residential area, on the western edge of which there is one of the most significant and visited attractions in Munich - the Nymphenburg Palace.

The Nymphenburg Palace (Schloss Nymphenburg) is a palace complex and is one of the most majestic royal palaces in Europe.

The palace was built starting in 1664 by the decree of Elector Ferdinand Maria for his wife Henrietta Adelaide of Savoy, who had just given birth to the long - awaited heir to the throne-Prince-Elector Max Emmanuel (later King Maximilian II).

Nymphenburg served for many years as the main summer residence of the Wittelsbach rulers of Bavaria.

Some of the halls and rooms of the palace still display their original Baroque decorations. Anyone can visit the palace halls today.

The palace complex also includes two museums:

- The Carriage Museum (Marstallmuseum) is one of the most important museums of its kind in the world and is located in the former southern Royal Stables.

The exhibition presents representative carriages, sleds, carts and riding accessories;

- Porcelain Museum (Porzellanmuseum), which presents a unique private collection of porcelain from the period from the 18th to the 20th century and is located in the southern wing of the Nymphenburg Palace.

Adjacent to the palace is the Nymphenburg Palace Park, which covers almost 300 hectares and contains: a central canal with a "Grand Cascade" - a Baroque waterfall; fountains; alleys and walking paths; statues and sculptures; two lakes and a monopter.

For a fee, you can visit several pavilions - palaces in miniature in the park.

Address of the Nymphenburg Palace: Schloß Nymphenburg, 1. Nymphenburg Palace website: schloss-nymphenburg. Read more about the Nymphenburg Palace and the surrounding park…

The Nymphenburg Palace is approached from the Waisenhausstrasse (Waisenhausstraße) by two shady roads separated by the castle canal.

The canal is crossed by a small arched bridge "Gerner" (Gerner Brücke). The channel is home to swans and ducks. During the summer months, guests can take a gondola ride along the canal, and on cold winter days, when the canal freezes and is covered with ice, it becomes a popular destination for ice skating, hockey or curling.

Hirschgarten Park

Hirschgarten Park, which means "Deer Garden", is located near the Nymphenburg Palace and is a popular place in Munich.

The name "Deer" park was given because it was previously located outside the city and nobles hunted in this area. In 1780, Elector Karl Theodor ordered the creation of hunting grounds: part of the territory was fenced, and 100 pairs of red deer were released.

In 1958-1959, the north-eastern part of the park was transformed into an urban recreation area. From 1968 to 1970, the area was expanded to become a public park.

Today, the park contains: trees, some of which are more than 150 years old; playgrounds for children; a skate park; meadows; barbecue areas and a 2-hectare aviary with fallow deer and moufflon.

Also in the park is located, presumably, the largest beer garden in the world, designed for 8000 seats. However, it is not entirely clear whether the beer garden in the park is really the largest in the world?! But one thing is for sure: "at least in Bavaria, there is no beer garden that boasts a large number of places." Website of a restaurant with a beer garden: hirschgarten.

Third Order Clinic Building (Dritter Order Hospital)

As in other major German cities, at the end of the 19th century, Munich had a great need for hospitals for people who needed care, especially if they belonged to the lower classes. Patients from the lower strata of the population were discharged from existing hospitals as incurable or not accepted at all, and they could not afford long-term nursing services.

Father of the Church of the Third Holy Order in Munich - Petrus Eder (Capuchin) I wanted to participate in changes leading to better health care for low-income citizens. He often put pressure on various agencies to implement his plans to provide medical care to the religious community. He was inspired, encouraged, and actively supported by some influential princes of the time.

Since October 6, 1901, in the religious community of St. Nicholas. Anton's "Third Aid Service" started its work. Father Petrus was able to attract some private nurses to his business.

The construction of a separate building of the teaching hospital was started in 1912. Subsequently, the hospital was expanded several times.

So the Third-order Clinic (Klinikum Dritter Orden) was created, which turned into a recognized center of medical competence and care for people. The medical facility is still functioning today, and the building itself is an architectural monument.

Hospital address: Menzinger Strasse, 44 (Menzinger Strraße).
