Great tour and insight into the royal residence. The tour can take an hour or a half day depending on what you want to see, you can tour at your own pace with the audio tour. Make sure to see the crown jewels as well.

We arrived at the residence right before a big crowd. You pay a fee to see the residence and a fee to see the crown jewels. NOTE: YOU CANNOT TAKE BACKPACKS OR LARGE PURSES INSIDE. They have a place to keep your bags. People kept getting upset about it. You also can't take in selfie sticks. It was worth it.... More

Take the self tour. I would suggest skipping around. Pace yourself to see the whole Residence. The Treasury was worth while. Only took @ 45 mins.

The visit is in 2 parts: the Treasury and the Palace. The Treasury side is much smaller and you can go through in less than an hour. The items on display are magnificent. The Palace side is huge and VERY impressive. One room is more unique and ornate than the next. Please be aware that you must check any bags... More

It began in 1385 as a little castle, was expanding more and more. Today it is with theater, church, gardens, museums, restaurants one of the main attraction of the city. It is an absolut must to visit it, and you should take your time, at least 4-5 hours what you nedd to spend there to have a small felling about... More

We didn't have much time and could only visit the main residence, which on it's own was really good. Although several parts of the residence was under renovation you can still visit many rooms. Some of the rooms really looked out of this world! The audio guide, which I believe is free, explained the things you see in the residence... More

The Munich Residence is a mind-boggling experience, very high value. We bought the triple ticket, which included entry to the Treasury and to the Culliares Theatre (to just look at and take pictures). The Residence is so enormous, and with the free wonderful audio guide, you can spend hours upon hours there. On a warmer day, the interior can be... More

Honestly, we weren't going to do the Munich Residence but I'm glad we did! I'd definitely recommend getting the triple ticket for the treasury, museum, and theater. Otherwise, you'll be in and out of there in no time. Im very confused by the comments that say you need 2 full days to do the whole thing. We saw everything we... More
