The Amalienburg is an elaborate hunting lodge on the grounds of the Nymphenburg Palace Park, Munich, in southern Germany.

It’s a cute little place which is both beautiful inside and outside. It has an elegant feel about it.
Schloss Nymphenburg with Amalienburg is probably the most beautiful place in Munich.There is also a family Museum Mensch und Natur,wonderful for kids.It is allowed to bring your own food.They have a cafe and an area where you can eat your lunch.The Castle is a Museum now just like Amalienburg.It is less than 5 bucks to visit all the small "Burgen" in the park,kids are free.On Sundays Museum Mensch und Natur is only one buck for grown ups and zero for kids(a lot of museums in Munich do that).You could spend a whole day there walking in the park and checking out the "Burgen" and the museum.If you think the pictures are beautiful just watch how it looks in real life.It will amaze you.
