Rocco Forte Hotels

From a bespoke 5-course dinner on your rooftop terrace to an indulgent Bavarian spa treatment and exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to Nymphenburg Castle, The Charles Hotel is offering its guests an extraordinary opportunity to experience the beauty and history of Munich.

The former summer residence of Bavarian royalty, the spectacularly baroque Nymphenburg Castle is one of Munich’s most famous landmarks. Originally built in the 17th century, the ornate palace and its exquisitely landscape gardens tell the story of Munich’s history and rulers. Now, guests can enjoy a truly exclusive experience at the palace courtesy of The Charles. During a private guided tour of this extraordinary site, you’ll enjoy access to the famous Nymphenburg porcelain factory, which does not normally permit visitors. Witness the painstaking craftmanship involved in making Nymphenburg porcelain before taking Afternoon Tea in the Blue Salon, served on Nymphenburg tableware. Before leaving, you’ll be presented with a handmade, monogrammed porcelain cup from Nymphenburg to treasure for years to come.

Return to The Charles for some relaxation courtesy of a 90-minute Bavarian arolla pine treatment for two in the Charles Spa. Found locally, the arolla pine has several health-boosting benefits, such as improved circulation, maximum relaxation, better sleep and antibacterial properties. Make the most of this wonder plant with a 30-minute honey and arolla pine scrub, followed by a revitalising hour-long arolla pine and juniper oil massage. Suitably soothed, finish your spa session with a fortifying glass of arolla pine liqueur.

Once back in your spacious suite, you’ll be served a spectacular 5-course feast on your private rooftop terrace. Created especially for you by the hotel’s Executive Chef Michael Hüsken, this gourmet journey includes wine pairing and comes with a side of spectacular city views.

The two are irrevocably intertwined.
