The pagoda castle was built as first ones of the Nymphenburger park castles from 1716 to 1721 by architect Joseph Effner. Their name is derived from the numerous small Chinese god's figures inside which one calls pagodas. The pagoda castle is a prominent report of the China fashion in Europe of the early 18th century.

From three small rooms in the upper floor two present themselves as East Asian varnish cabinets. The black varnished Vertäfelung in the „black drawing room“ encloses Chinese paintings with flowers and birds on paper. The Chinese drawing room with Chinese wallpaper on the walls looks foreign just by the colour combination. A weird space form lends exotic trains to the rest room in spite of the decoration in "European" Régenceformen. Johann Anton Gumpp and Johann Adam Pichler were involved in the equipment of the rooms.

"Chinoiserie" is no autonomous style, but a fashion current in the baroque, after the middle of the 17th century. Chinese motives are "interpreted" by European artists and are connected by European forms.

Excuse for my bad English!


Die Pagodenburg wurde als erste der Nymphenburger Parkburgen 1716 bis 1721 von dem Architekten Joseph Effner erbaut. Ihr Name leitet sich von den zahlreichen kleinen chinesischen Götterfiguren im Inneren ab, die man als Pagoden bezeichnet. Die Pagodenburg ist ein herausragendes Zeugnis der Chinamode im Europa des frühen 18. Jahrhunderts.

Von den drei kleinen Räumen im Obergeschoss präsentieren sich zwei als ostasiatische Lackkabinette. Die schwarz lackierte Vertäfelung im „Schwarzen Salon“ umfasst chinesische Malereien mit Blumen und Vögeln auf Papier. Der Chinesische Salon mit chinesischen Tapeten an den Wänden wirkt allein schon durch die Farbenkombination fremdländisch. Eine bizarre Raumform verleiht dem Ruhezimmer trotz der Dekoration in »europäischen« Régenceformen exotische Züge. An der Ausstattung der Räume waren Johann Anton Gumpp und Johann Adam Pichler beteiligt.

„Chinoiserie“ ist kein autonomer Stil, sondern eine Mode-Strömung im Barock, nach der Mitte des 17. Jahrhunderts. Chinesische Motive werden von europäischen Künstlern „interpretiert“ und mit europäischen Formen verbunden.
