Fürstenried Palace

Fürstenried Palace

Fürstenried Palace is a baroque palace in the southwest of Munich, Germany. It was built by Joseph Effner for Elector Max Emanuel in 1715–17 as a hunting lodge. Two pavilions are added each in the south and north of the main building.

Fürstenried Palace was the residence of the former Electress Maria Anna from 1778 to 1796. The palace served as domicile for King Otto of Bavaria from 1883 onwards until his death. Since 1925 the Catholic Retreat Hostel for spiritual exercises has been housed in Fürstenried Palace.
