The Residence is worth a stop if within Munich more than three days. The location is in the center of town and there are a number of other destinations within walking distance. You have to keep your expectations in check when arriving. You can either see the Residence itself or both the Residence and Treasury. My personal opinion is to... More

The Residenz itself took us two and a quarter hours with the self guided audio tour. And parts of it were closed for restauration work! We then broke for lunch and then went back to do the Schatzkammer and the Cuvillies Theatre.

Its a huge palace and you can spend hours there if you go through the whole audio guide. I spent around 1.5 hour there, the rooms are amazing and beautiful. I didn't know it was that big and the history is also very interesting.

Definitely a must-see in Munich. Plan for at least half a day. The treasury has a very interesting collection of crowns/utensils/religious items etc. The palace is huge. Everytime you feel the tour has ended, you reach another long set of rooms. Got a bit tiring towards the end. They have a combi ticket for the treasury and the palace. But... More

Tickets for visiting the former Palace of the Bavarian Monarchs, also offer, for an additional charge, visiting the royal Treasury located in the same building and/or visiting the Royal Theatre, again in the same complex of the royal palace buildings. We purchased the ticket to all three, but were able to split the visit over a couple of days. Trying... More

Amazing collection and to see how they royals lived. The extended path tour can be a bit monotonous as the rooms begin to look alike but it does give you a feel for the size of the place. When you are finished you can stroll on maximillian strasse and see all the high end shops and cars parked in front.

The environment is spectacular and the food borders on excellent--close to the high end for banquet food. The quality of service was very high in the beginning but deteriorated over time. We waited far to long for the first dish and then again too long for the main course. When they finally served the desert it was clear the staff... More

Beautiful all over, and while renaissance is usually not my thing here i was rendered quiet by the splendour of the great Hall here.Be sure to buy the compete ticket including treasury it's worth your money.

My boyfriend had previously traveled to Munich but did not get a chance to go in the Residenz, and he is very glad he was able to this time having experienced such a visually stunning museum! Every single room is awe-inspiring, ornate, and beautiful, and it truly is a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend visiting this museum during your time... More

Some of the rooms in this place are absolutely stunning, the paintings on the roof and the gold decorations in the hall of mirrors are definitely worth seeing. We had the free audio tour in English which was good to give us a better idea of what we were seeing. The place is massive though so we took a break... More
