Munich Castles: Blutenburg Palace

 
The Blutenburg Palace, also located in the West of Munich behind the Nymphenburg Palace directly at the river Würm, was developed in the 15th century.

Duke Albrecht III. ordered the redesign of the already existing "Pluedenburg" in the north of the Bavarian capital Munich to use it as his country residence. In 1467, his successor, Duke Sigismund, renounced from the throne in favour of his brother Albrecht IV. and moved to the Blutenburg Palace where he died in 1501.

Although the Blutenburg Palace has a boundary wall with towers, it is dominated by the simple church of late Gothic style. Still its main feature is that it is surrounded by water.
As it is a small palace and quite different from the other ones, it is really worth a visit.
