The residence is stunning, and perfectly maintained. The Schatzkammer (Treasury) is extraordinary; the residence itself is fascinating though there are not many unforgettable masterpieces.

If you have time only to visit one place in Munich, I would say, it's the Residenz. It takes few hours if you make a big turn visit, but really worth it. Come with walking shoes(not high heel as you walk a lot) and small bag,if not you have to leave at the reception. I've heard you can do short-cut... More

I just love exploring these old buildings, so much history. Loved the beautiful big rooms. Some amazing art and many precious jewels, statues and religious artifacts.

Most of the palace is open to see and the audio guide gives you tonnes of information on every room. It was too much if anything. Most rooms were without furniture and "was destroyed in the second world war" featured so much in the descriptions it almost made me feel guilty. This place must have been amazing but sadly today...

Really enjoyed visit here Allow a good few hours as there is a lot more to see than you think, maybe buy a guide to fully appreciate, we were fortunate to have a guide in one of our Munich books

Wow...that's all I can really say! Everything was so beautiful here, when my husband and I went they were having a colonial style dinner, super cool. The members involved let you take photos of and with them...really neat environment. Beautiful architecture and a great walk.

It is unbelievable, very impressive, except for the garden even better than Versaille. The main disadvantage is the security check (they don't let you in with a purse bigger than a certain size, let's say over 80% of visitor ladies have a bigger purse than their norm and it takes a century to get rid of the purse or backpack...

This is big and impressive. It was a pity that most rooms were devoid of furniture, - I guess the aerial clearance programmes of 1944-45 didn't help. But the place is fantastic, and very, very big. The gardens to the north are also worth a visit, and from there it is an easy step to the Englischer Garten.

One of the rare palaces where we have seen so many state rooms, architecture at full glory and nice guided audio tour. There are two halves in the places one is treasury and other one is the palace itself. Good to spend atleast half day trip here.

Huge and impressive palace. I thought I read on here that there were 130 rooms but it said there were around 90 rooms and while some say you should skip some, we didn’t (there is a short cut tour and a full tour choice – the latter being worth it and not that much more to do). The Treasury is... More
