Dachau Travel Tip:
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, 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 garden, which had been redesigned in the previous century in the Baroque style. From the garden's attractive ridge location there is a panoramic view extending to the Alps.
