One of Germany’s most famous porcelain factories is located on the grounds of Schloss Nymphenburg (see “Day Trips from Munich"), about 5 miles (8km) from central Munich. You can visit its exhibition and sales rooms Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm. If you’re short on time, you can stop by a branch in Munich’s center at Odeonsplatz 1 (tel. 089/282428; U-Bahn Odeonsplatz).
