Lots to see, beautifully decorated rooms. Gives a glimpse on how the royalty in Bavaria lived. The treasury was very interesting as well, would have preferred text signage and explanations rather than the audio guide though.

The scale and quality of the offering is impressive, though it quickly becomes apparent that very little is original due to the WW2 bombing. Even so the restoration is amazing and there are some rooms which are truly stunning. The audio commentary is very thorough, though it does get a bit long winded after a while. The only word of...

We have visited royal residences throughout Europe. This one was a bit of a disappointment. The rooms were bare and many were meaningless. I would not put this on my must see list.

This is a massive palace of seemingly endless and ultimately similar and unexciting rooms. Much of it has been rebuilt after the war. In the end it just wore me out - audio commentary is ok but by the end we were just skipping through trying to get to the end. Treasury is interesting.

Rub the noses of the giant bronze lions guarding the entrance to the palace on Residenzstrasse for wealth and good luck, like many of the other visitors to the Munich Residenz. The growth and luxury of the Residenz complex really shows off the power of the Wittelsbach dynasty as well as the cultural centrality of Munich for the Bavarian state.

Really nice stately palace & free audio guide, but virtually every room has furniture which does not belong in the room...as the audio-guide repeatedly tells you, which gets a bit annoying after the 30th time you're told that haha!

Allow a good couple of hours - even at a quick pace! Very Large. The larger halls are very impressive - rich, decadent decor designed to impress and awe - just as a palace should be! The attached Treasury is an additional cost (as is the Theatre but didn't do that). The extra cost well worth it though as the... More

It was quite a long walk around, but well worth it. Particularly pleased that photography was allowed (without flash), which makes a nice change and is at odds with some of the other Bavarian palaces. We thoroughly enjoyed this and made good use of the combined tickets to visit the Theatre and Treasury too.

I love the intricate details of all the walls and ceilings! Enjoyed walking and seeing how the things are well-preserved with some original marble here and there. Short and concise description of the rooms as well.
