Went there 2012 Fall because the weather changed, so indoor activity was the choice. So much to see and wonderful place to spend a day easily. Great museum with so many language options! The garden outside is also fabulous! The royalty really knew how to live!

Located very conveniently in the city centre. Contains a lot of nice period furniture and jewelry. In the summer there are interesting concerts in the residence court.

A must go when visiting Munich. If you like history, art, and architecture, you're going to have a blast. Make sure to get the audio tour to maximize your experience.

The first part of our vist was to the treasury, which has a large display of precious artefacts and art. The theatre was muchsmaller than I had imagined but the decor was evry bit as stunning as in the guides. The architecture is regal - I had never realised that Munich had any such type of history.

Residenz couldn't impress me, because in every single hall I saw that this furniture and jewellery wasn't real and that got me down as all of this in general didn't make sence.That's my opinion.

This is a great museum that you can spend all day walking through. We purchased the triple ticket for the residence, treasury, and theater. The theater was great to see but I expected something else. Make sure you rub the lions outside of the Residence for good luck!

This museum gives a good look into the history of the Bavarian monarchs. The audio tour is free and the route is well marked. The items and architecture is stunning. Not that much is made of the fact that the place was completely destroyed during the war and has been rebuilt through the determination of the Bavarian people. That would... More

So much to see and do take the time. Many impressive rooms, architecture, and artwork. I only wish more could have been saved as much of the fine works were destroyed in the second world War. Nonetheless it is a must see. Not a big fan of the Treasury part, but it is interesting also.
