A majestic place

This place has an amazing collection of a wide variety of items. The rooms and hallways are majestic. There are lots of rooms to see, so plan for several hours.

The Residenz displays a wonderful collection of art, furniture and architecture. Some of the items displayed are not original as these fell victim to destruction during WW2. It is a testament to the people of Munich and the "Bayerische Schlösserverwaltung" that this gem in the heart of Munich has been reconstructed after the war. I would plan around 2 hours... More

This is an enormous building and takes a good few hours to go around. By the end we were feeling overwhelmed. But that said, there are some fabulous parts of this building and we are glad we made the effort.

Especially liked the treasury. There was also a room that resembled the hall of mirrors at Versailles.

Big like Versailles, without the crowds. Some hidden jewels of rooms, including the antiquarium and the optical illusion painted ceiling.
