Discover how Bavarian royalty lived and governed at Munich Residenz, the largest city palace in Germany. You'll be drawn in by its opulent architecture, elaborate room decorations, and displays from the former royal collections. The complex includes ten courtyards and 130 rooms. Built in 1385, the palace was originally a small, moated castle. The kings of Bavaria gradually expanded it to use as a private residence and an official seat of government. The renowned court theater here opened for public performances in 1795. The complex also houses the primary concert hall for Bavaria's famous symphony orchestra. Though you can't get a guided tour, you can pick free audio guides at the palace museum. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Munich fast, fun, and easy.
Munich Residenz Reviews
Visit was not what i expected not a lot about the history of Munich. Quite repetative on one era and focus on furnishings and art work but just quite random in that most is not where or how it was act... more »
This is an absolutely beautiful place to explore. But make sure you pace yourself appropriate, as you could spend hours wandering the halls if you're not careful! There are definitely some highlights ... more »
A big and beautiful palace/museum which includes a beautiful theatre as well. Entrance fee is nominal, students offer also available. Tourists can keep their luggage with no additional costs. One can get an audio phone as 'Audio Guide' which would be very informative and useful. It's free of cost. Totally a worth visiting.
Great place to visit. Very large, so be prepared to spend two good hours here. Well worth the visit when it's not so crowded. If you bring small children, take the provided buggies. It helps to calm them down, when they are tired with all the walking.
