We enjoyed a morning tour of this beautiful palace. Great history of the Bavarian kings and queens. Well worth half a day or more.

Enormous with so much to see! Had a better experience here than visiting castles in southern Bavaria. At least here you aren’t packed in like sardines, can take photos (no flash), are can explore at your own leisure.

This palace is well done, especially considering so much of it was destroyed on WWII. They have done a good job with restoration work. I just wish there was a way to route people through the rooms without doubling back thru them.

I have seen the other answers saying that it does not have air conditioning. I was in the hotel on August 25 and my room had it, it was very hot but with the air it was very good.

There's a website that lists all 40 attractions that the 14 day ticket covers. I don't remember the link off the top of my head, but I'm sure if you Google it, you will find it.
