Known as the most calm and peaceful park in Munich, Schlosspark Nymphenburg offers great trails for walking and running, several garden pavilions, a cafe, gorgeous fountains, statues, and, most importantly, the beautiful Nymphenburg palace (Schloss is the German word for Palace). The park is 6km west of the city center, and reachable by S-Bahn train.
Nymphenburg palace was a summer residence to the birth of the long-awaited heir to the throne, Max Emanuel, who was born in 1662. With its unique architecture and garden design, Nymphenburg is one of the best examples of a synthesis of the arts, throughout all of Europe. The large fountains in front of Nymphenburg palace park not only give pleasure to visitors, but also represent a landmark in Bavarian technological history.
Our 6.7 mile loop will you take you around the outskirts of the entire park, and is a fairly flat and relaxed run. Yet, once you reach the park, there’s no need to stick strictly to the route shown on the map we’ve provided. The whole thing is walled-in, so it’s nearly impossible to get lost! A nice feature of our run is the tree-lined “allee”, along the Nymphenburg canal, which is lovely for running and has great views of the palace.
