Antiquarium was beautiful!

The single most beautiful thing we saw in Germany was the Antiquarium. We loved the coin museum in that complex, the opera hall, etc. But do not miss the Antiquarium!

After touring many castles and residences along the Romantic Road, we weren't sure what to expect of the Residenz. While the exterior is nothing fancy, the interior really impresses. Rooms of this scale or this kind of luxury were missing in the other castles, but this does not disappoint. Definitely impressive and somewhat jaw dropping! Skip the audio tour which... More

The treasury is definitely worth a visit, it is world class, however, the palace is just a series of austere interconnected rooms.

You could spend an hour here or a whole day. It is a very well-preserved and varied palace museum. We had a terrific guide and did a truncated 1.5 hour tour. For some that was fine, for others there was a lot more to see and do. Budget accordingly. They will make you check any bag larger than a small... More

The interior spaces, furnishings and treasures contained within the Residenz proper as well as the associated Treasury and Theater are generally beautiful and even breathtaking at times. At times though I felt revulsion and even contempt for the royals who had this enormous complex built and remodeled over a few centuries. The sheer decadence makes me amazed that the minimal...

The Residence is almost on Par with the Chateau de Versailles outside of Paris, it only lacks the phenomenal grounds the Chateau is so well known for. But it is a must see if you love history and sheer opulence.

Woah... fascinating place, incredibly well restored and maintained, especially when you know almost everything had been destroyed during WWII. Everything is very well-documented and explained (and translated in English). I especially loved the Chinoiseries collection !

Amazing building with over 100 rooms open but they do get a bit the same. Great value for money at €13 for all the open rooms which will take about 2 hours to get round at pace. Good free audio guide in various languages which says it takes 5 hours to see everything and listen to the full dialogue. Make... More
