The two-storey north wing of Nymphenburg Palace was planned under Elector Max III Joseph in the mid-18th century. It was to contain a new theatre and comedy hall, the subsequent Hubertus Hall, and two large orangery halls on the ground floor with room for at least 250 citrus plants in the winter.
The proximity of the orangery and the festivity rooms was deliberate, as the citrus plants with their fragrant blossoms were a popular dining room and table decoration in this period.
Today this spacious, light-filled room no longer houses plants, but is available for private festivities instead. The 25-metre-long room can accommodate up to 170 guests. Whether for illustrious receptions, presentations, lectures or meetings, on its own or in combination with the event area on the upper floor, the Orangery Hall is a room that offers many possibilities.
The Orangery Hall is particularly suitable for receptions, seminars,
and secular marriage ceremonies.
