It is known as the Schloss Schleißheim in the German language. This palace is actually a group of three palaces, the Old Schleissheim Palace, the Lusthiem Palace, and the New Schleissheim Palace.

If the walls of these palaces and its structures could talk, they would have many interesting stories to tell. For example, the clock tower that is situated between both courtyards… the outer one being Wilhelmshof and the inner one being Maxmillanshof… and the central gate of the palaces date back to the period when the palaces were first conceived.
