Architecturally exemplary 'Lustgebäude' with ceiling painting that was new at the time Exquisite Meissen collectionLustheim Palace is a hunting and garden palace that Elector Max Emanuel of Bavaria had built on the occasion of his marriage to the emperor's daughter Maria Antonia between 1684 and 1689. Surrounded by a ring-shaped canal, it is situated on an artificial island symbolizing the island of love Kythera. Together with the Old and New Palaces, which lie at the other end of the park, Lustheim Palace forms one of the most important Baroque complexes in Germany. Max Emanuel commissioned the Bavarian court architect Enrico Zucalli from Graubünden to build the palace, which reflects Italian influences. Both the palace, which consists of three cubes, and the garden pavilions on either side of the canal, whose façades are copies of the Villa Madama in Rome, show Italian architectural elements. Between flank risalites, the taller main building recedes. Its front is decorated with double colossal pilasters. Two-storey wings are attached to the sides. The layout of the interior rooms can already be seen in the elevation. In the main building a banqueting hall extends over two floors, from which one can reach the apartments of the Elector and the Electress at the side. On the upper floor there were formerly simple living quarters for the entourage and in the cellar the kitchen and the servants' quarters. The banqueting hall and the electoral apartments are decorated with ceiling frescoes glorifying Diana, the goddess of the hunt. This first cycle of profane ceiling painting in Bavaria - created in 1686/87 - is the work of masters Francesco Rosa, Giovanni Trubillio and Johann Anton Gumpp.Lustheim's treasure today is the Meissen porcelain collection donated to the Bavarian National Museum by Mr Ernst Schneider in 1968. The extraordinary collection comprises 1800 pieces from the heyday of the Meissen manufactory in the 18th century, with early tableware by Böttger, chinoiseries by Höroldt and the famous animal figures by Kändler, through to porcelains from the period of the Seven Years' War.
"Elector Max Emanuel's Versailles" Monument to the imperial dreams of an absolutist baroque prince and gallery palace of a passionate art collector.Max Emanuel, who first marched with the Austrians against the Turks, later with the French against the Austrians, gifted Munich with the splendour of baroque palaces such as Schleißheim and Nymphenburg. Schleißheim was to be turned into a massive 'royal residence' by his imperial dreams. Debts and exile, however, caused the plans to shrink. Nevertheless, the result is impressive. The old Zucalli began the construction of the new palace in 1701 (the "French-trained" Effner continued in 1719-26), but the staircase was only completed by Klenze. This cheerful and festive splendid architectural building of the late baroque and rococo period, stretching over 335 m, divided into a central wing, connecting wings and corner pavilions, turns its windowed façade towards the Old Palace in the west and towards the park in the east.French elegance, already visible on the façade in the graceful window design, is completely continued in the interior. The portico, the fulminant staircase, the Great Gallery, the banqueting halls and residential corridors revel in light stucco, colorful frescoes and paintings."Victory over the Turks!"...proclaims the programme on the upper floor of the middle building. J. B. Zimmermann's magnificent stucco sculpture figures Turkish heads, war trophies, atlantean slaves. Amigoni's frescoes celebrate Max Emanuel in the guise of the Roman ancestor Aeneas. The Venetian fresco artist took Asam's place when his 'trial fresco' in the dome of the staircase - 'Venus at Vulcan' - fell flat with the Elector because he disliked his likeness (to the right of Venus). Beich's battle paintings also praise the Turkish victor - two huge ones in the light-filled Great Hall, nine smaller ones in the Victoria Hall, a Baroque jewel with Hercules' arms by Dubut and Régence decoration from the Pichler workshop.Reassembled by the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen since 2001, Baroque paintings of European rank can now be admired in more than 20 rooms of the New Palace. The Great Gallery houses, among others, three Rubens works on religious themes as well as the Italians Il Guercino, Castiglione, Saraceni, Giordano. In the apartments, Dutch, French, Italian alternate, so portraits of van Dyck and Vivien, genre scenes Teniers the Younger and mythological or religious subjects by Crespi, Testa or Manredi.
Opposite the electoral paradise palace stands the ducal country palace, a late Renaissance building with a pretty dormer and a staircase hall in the middle. The interior was decorated by Candid. It was partly restored and partly reconstructed after severe war damage in 1972. The original had been built by Schön the Elder in 1616-23 for Maximilian I. with extensive farm buildings.Before that the simple manor house of Duke Wilhelm V. stood here, The things that the Bavarian National Museum exhibits in this branch also once served piety: the rich collection of Gertrud Weinhold with cult objects of Christian folk faith from all over the world, above all from the Catholic centres of South America, Mexico, Poland, but also with ecumenical examples, spread out in 250 showcases under the motto 'The Year of God and its Festivals' in the right wing. The left wing serves the Museum of East Prussia-West Prussia.
