We visited here on our second day in Munich, it was a pleasant surprise. We had no background knowledge on this place. We were given audio guides in English which gave information on every room you went into. Our walk around took around 2 and a half hours, you could easily stay for a shorter or longer period of time.... More

I was in Munich during chilly weather so was doing lots indoors. This palace was almost all rebuilt after WWII so not very historic and it's huge, it takes long time to see it all. So if you're there in the nice weather maybe other things outside better to do?

A wonderful day can be spent here, it is massive and full of jewels and royal trinkets. There are many rooms you can wander around and there is a wonderful shop for purchasing goods. It is near to the opera and the unmissable Spatenhaus, an de Oper. The food here is exceptional, and you are also near the best shopping... More

This is an amazing place. The rehabilitation of this palace is well done. More astounding than Versailles (not including the grounds). And, the Treasury contains terrific examples of their wealth.

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
