A hidden gem. On the outside it looks like a normal old building but inside there is an outstanding palace, with fantastic rooms and halls. Simply amazing, and not too expensive.

The Munich Residenz is located just a couple of blocks from the Marienplatz subway stop and is easy to access even in winter. Once inside the main entrance step up the five steps to the ticket purchase/gift shop area and purchase tickets for the Residenz, Treasury, or both (credit cards are accepted as payment as are euros). Back into the... More

The Residenz is in the city center and someone can easy visit it . One of the most beautifull palaces I have ever visited. I have been there twice . A palace from the renaissance period very luxurious and charming with many rooms open to the visitors .

I found the Residenz enjoyable but a bit repetitive. After awhile all the rooms seem the same and only a handful are really impressive. We opted for the long tour but did not use the audio guide very much due to the length of the explanations and just not caring that much about the former guests. I think we spent... More

We ended up touring only through the treasury as they close at 5pm and do not sell tickets after 4pm - was beautiful what we did manage to see.

Well worth visiting both the Museum and the Treasury - if just for the the early pieces in the treasury which are magnificent. The museum is huge but to get the full feel for the opulence of life as a Bavarian royal, do the long tour. It gets a little overwhelming after a while, tapestry after tapestry, gold leaf dripping...

My brother and I had a great visit. The Residence is huge but I was happy to cover every available inch. The sheer elegance and extravagance of the decor was something to behold and the main hall was stunning. So much intricate detail in the walls and ceilings. Each exhibit/article had a useful English explanation which we made an effort... More

There are two main places to visit inside the Residenz. The first, and by far away biggest and most impressive is the main Residenz Museum with all the lovingly restored and opulent rooms to explore. The second is the Treasury where some of the most decorative objects are housed in display cases. The museum is definitely worth the visit, the... More

Opulent Beauty, the treasury contained the family jewels of the previous royalty. I am not into jewelry, but these were beautiful!
