Munich’s architectural appearance is largely obliged primarily to King Bavaria Ludwig 1, which has been ruled from 1825 to 1848. Then Bavaria was the third largest kingdom of the German Confederation after Austria and Prussia and Ludwig 1 believed that Munich, like the capital, must correspond to this status. "I want from Munich to make the city, which will glorify Germany so that no one can say that he knows Germany if he has not seen Munich".

In the gallery there is a portrait of his mistress Lola Montes, the dancers, because of which Ludwig 1 refused the throne.

The main building of the castle is a wonderful garden with small palaces. One of them – Amalienburg – was built by Karl Albrecht specifically for his wife Amalia. Passionate lover of women. Carl Albrecht had 40 extramarital children, and as a compensation for his infidelity gave the wife of the castle, where she could do his beloved cooking and shoot from the roof of the castle of Pheasanov, because her second passion was hunting.
