Luckily my husband and I visited the Munich Residence early in the morning when it is less crowded. It is a very large building with much to see and learn. Splendid decor, furniture and items used by royals. Interesting to see the splendor of long ago.

On the outside it seems like a normal building but i was very impressed when i enter it. You buy the ticket and it already includes the audio guide (if I am not mistaken, there were in English, German, Italian, French). The tour needs at least 3h if you want to see everything calmly, there were some rooms that really... More

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.

As previously mentioned by other reviews, the Residence is really more of a facsimile than a presentation of real artifacts. There are original pieces and certainly history to be learned, but if it is sunny and warm outside a good afternoon at the Seehaus might have have been time better spent. That said, we did purchase the expanded ticket which... More

Beautiful grounds (which lead to the English Garden), and lots of interesting rooms. Schatzkammer is small but nice - (jewels). Great way to spend a rainy day in Munich (and when the rain stops, enjoy the gardens, walk into the English Garten, on up to the Chinese Tower - a full day in Munich)

The opulence of this palace reminded me of Versailles in Paris. So much wealth for 1 family. It is well worth a day visit. Try a weekday when the crowds are less.

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