Originally an early medieval castle, Dachau Palace was partially destroyed over time. What remains was redone in Baroque style between 1715 and 1717. Visit the interior of the castle to see the magnificent wooden Renaissance ceiling of the main hall, then take in the views of the gardens and Munich beyond. Save some time to wander the extensive gardens and perhaps enjoy a slice of cake with some coffee in the veranda cafe.

Dachau Palace reviews
They have a lot of nice cakes and good coffee. We got our coffee 10 minutes after our cake. The Ambiente is really nice.

A very sobering experience. There is a warning when entering that it's not recommended for 12 and under. I had my 14 year old granddaughter with me and wished that we skipped the last two rooms. Otherwise a great learning experience I'm glad we did. The entry is free of charge, but there are opportunities to donate some cash along the way.
Beautiful palace in Dachau located up on the mountain with beautiful views over the city of Dachau and towards Munich. One can easily spot the O2-Tower as well as the Allianz Arena on clear days you'll see the alpine range in the background. Worth a visit during the whole year. Especially also the gardens where a wide range of flowers and different sorts of apple trees are cultivated.
