Dachau Palace originated as an early medieval castle belonging to the Counts of Dachau. Under Duke Wilhelm IV and his son Duke Albrecht V it was transformed into a massive four-winged complex by the Munich court architects Heinrich Schöttl and Wilhelm Egkl (1546 to 1577).
The magnificent wooden Renaissance ceiling in the hall, one of the most important in Southern Germany, dates from this time. At the beginning of the 19th century, three-quarters of the complex was demolished, leaving only the hall section facing the court garden, which had been redesigned in the Baroque style under Max Emanuel from 1715 to 1717.
In this virtual tour you will experience the Dachau Palace and Court Garden from a brand new perspective. The Panoramic shots (360 degrees) will present you phantastic views of the palace and the gardens. Please click on the picture below to start the virtual tour:
The panoramas or pictures to be loaded are rather large, and thus take a relatively long time to load. Please be patient – they are worth waiting for! The tour opens in a separate window and was prepared by Josef Spitzlberger, Oberschleißheim.
