Just a short tram ride away from Munich's city centre lies Nymphenburg Palace. You only get to see a little section of it, considering how huge the actual palace is.
One of the many great conceptions of King Ludwig 1's Gallery of Beauties is housed there. And on the other end of the palace was a whole museum dedicated to carriages and sleighs!
i found it exiting anyways.

if ever in Munich, the Deutsches Jagd- und Fischerei Museum is a must. Housed in an old monastery, with three floors of dead fish and mammals native to and hunted in Germany for hundreds of years. Along with everything hunt related from the knives, riffles, satchels and sledges used, which are all works of art as well, full of amazing intricate designs often depicting little hunt scenes. There was also a full display of the Wolfertinger, fantastical hybrid creatures said to inhabit the Bavarian forests. They even showed a rabbit doing a chicken!

The main attraction that brought us to Munich.
All from Rauch's solo at the Pinakothek der Moderne which is running in tandem with the exhibit at Leipzig's Museum of Fine Arts all to celebrate his 50th Birthday. Another reason we love Munich, unlike Leipzig, they let you photograph in their museums.
