In 2021 numerous highlights await visitors to Bavaria’s palaces – and at ITB Berlin NOW the Bavarian administration of state-owned palaces, gardens and lakes is reporting on what has been going on these last weeks and months.
The fully refurbished episcopal quarters of the New Residence Bamberg were re-opened in autumn 2020 and new exhibition rooms were created in many houses. At the Residence in Ansbach for instance, a new permanent exhibition entitled “No duke without a horse“ awaits visitors.
In future, visitors to the Marstallmuseum at Nymphenburg Palace in Munich can look forward to two new themes. The saddle and harness room has been refurnished so that the Marstallmuseum, which already houses the coaches and sleds of King Ludwig II., now also exhibits the requisite harnesses, saddlecloths and sled bells. In another room visitors can explore the history of the Munich Hof Marstall buildings – as soon as the pandemic situation allows of course.
Franconian treasures are on show again this year in Kulmbach. At Plassenburg up until November, the Windsheimer collection features a special exhibition with a number of exhibits not previously shown to the public.
At Würzburg Residence a new documentation room featuring objects, large-scale photographs and historical video clips has information for visitors on the palace’s refurbishment. Using available media, visitors can gain an insight into the many different steps that went into the successful restoration and reconstruction effort.
For those unwilling to wait until the sites open their doors again, the website of the Bavarian palaces lets visitors explore many attractions via virtual tours, films, audio clips and photo galleries.
